In the summer of 2008 a crew of climbers in North Wales were pretty psyched on On Sight climbing – and here we go for Gravediggers (E8 6c) at first onsight, then ground-up.
It’s a hard and scary route, and taking the fall was pretty gripping, but we got there in the end!
We didn’t actually fall off as many times as it looks in this video, it’s just the way it’s edited… honest. We didn’t top rope or inspect the route in any way, we just inched further up the wall taking big falls on to the dodgy gear. Gripping!
This clip was part of Alastair Lee’s excellent On Sight DVD.
