During the recent pucka gritstone conditions, Nic Sellers made a rare flashed ascent of Balance It Is, E7 6c, at Burbage South.

This 1995 Neil Foster route has had a handful of ground-up and flashed ascents. Nic had a little bit of help with the foot sequence to get established on the arĂȘte, before placing the crucial brass nut that protects the top half of the route, and cruising to the top. No stranger to the grit 'zen', Sellers had previously made a 1-fall ground-up ascent of another grit E7 arĂȘte, Master's Edge, as well as the 3rd ascent of Partheon Shot, E9, just next to Balance.
