Leo Houlding is now back in the UK after his successful ascent of his new route The Prophet on El Capitan.
Houlding, partnered by Jason Pickles, managed to free climb the last remaining hard pitch (A1 Beauty) on his last day in the valley before a frantic flight home to give a lecture tour.
Alastair Lee, cameraman and film-maker who filmed Leo on the route, stated a grade for The Prophet in the UKC Forums:
550m, 1800 ft
In this Audio interview, given on the 31st of October at the Buxton Opera House, Houlding talks to former BBC Radio producer Lissa Cook.
Alastair Lee's film The Prophet covering Leo's attempts to free the route will premier at the Kendal Mountain Festival 2010.
