Name of a new climb
completed late last year by
. It is on gritstone
and has recieved a
tentative grade of E11. This make it the hardest
in the world. If you fall off you are likley to kill yourself. Neil fell off one one of his attempts,
his belayer ran quickly away from the cliff and managed to take in enough rope to prevent Neil from taking a groundfall
Much introspection followed, a new climbing film (called equilibrium, odd eh!) documents the first ascent.
I've not seen it, but the reiew mentions that it is filled with much Bergmanesque silences and shots of Neil in existential angst as he contemplates the route, all good clean fun.
