Matt Pycroft has now released a video of Alan's ascent:
Alan is now looking forward to starting work at The Climbing Academy (TCA) wall in Glasgow on the 15th of August. Rich Emerson, the Director of TCA said:
"We're really excited about Alan joining Rob Sutton to run TCA Glasgow. We can't imagine a stronger team (literally and otherwise) and we know they're totally committed to building a real sense of community and providing world class bouldering. As they're two of the nicest blokes you'll meet in climbing and they're going to have an amazing wall to work with, they should have no difficulty."
