I’ve been down to the Orme a couple of times over the last few days as the weather hasn’t been up to much for mountain cragging.
Pete has been trying Melancholy, Adam Wainwright’s F8b on Lower Pen Trywyn. He’s damn close.
As a warm down, the newly light-weight Robins flashed Over The Moon Direct (F8a).
At the same time Noel Craine was making equally light work of the first few moves of Bad Bad Boy (F7c), well, kind of. Adam and I looked on in awe at these two awesome displays of climbing prowess!
Chris Doyle was there trying Liquid Ambar (F8c). Chris is a very inspirational climber – he’s not scared to get on the routes that he wants to do. This is a philosophy I am trying to nurture for my trad and alpine ambitions. You can read about his efforts on his blog.
Anyway, here’s some video of Pete. This isn’t a film, it’s some pretty raw rubbish footage – but Pete will be able to show it to his grand kids in a few years time.[vimeo http://vimeo.com/4592662 w=600&h=450]
