Neil Gresham repeats Equilibrium E10 7a

di

Last week the British climber Neil Gresham made an impressive second ascent of Neil Bentley's gritstone Equilibrium, E10 7a.

Last week the British climber Neil Gresham made the most of cold conditions to complete an impressive second ascent of Neil Bentley's Equilibrium, E10 7a. Bentley's Burbage South testpiece entered history books as Britain's first ever E10 in February 2000.

Gresham's headpoint came about after a number of dangerously long falls spread out over several days of effort. No newcomer to hard trad routes (ascents include, amongst others, The Indian Face and Meshuga, both E9) Gresham felt Equilibrium to be significantly harder than his previous climbs, thereby confirming its E10 7a grade.

Congratulations!
