On Saturday 26 September Miles Gibson made the first ascent of Dangermouse at Wimberry (UKC News Report). He had to wait until evening before the conditions were right, during which time his climbing partner Ben Heason nipped up Order of the Phoenix, a near-by E8. When Miles set off the light was going which is why the video is a little dodgy. The final sequence was filmed by Ben who took him off belay (it had long since ceased to matter) and ran around to get the 'summit shot'.
