Back on the Grit

Well it's been an exciting week as the weather has been great!

Last Thursday saw us taking a trip up to Ilkley for me to try Deathwatch - E7 6b

I had previously tried this route on a really warm day in the summer and has been waiting for good weather to go back and try it. The day came and we decided to head up. It had been a couple of months since I tried it and it felt terrible on the top rope. Eventually I sorted the moves out on my second top rope at which point I decided to go for the lead. It felt great on the lead and it felt easier than it ever had done before!

For photos and a full report check out next months issue of CLIMB magazine and to see the footage of the ascent check out the new film HARD XS, which will be out on the 10th November (ish - I think!)
