British climber Steve McClure has made the first ascent of the extension to Raindogs, 9a at malham Cove, England

British climber Steve McClure continues to make a name for himself for top-end first ascents.

His most recent creation is the extension to one of Britains most famous 8a's, "Raindogs" at Malham Cove's Central Wall, which now weighs in at a mighty 9a.

McClure required 22 days spread out over two years to complete his third 9a first ascent, after Northen Lights, Kilsney (2000) and Mutation, Raven's Tor (1998).
