Bullock and Brodie establish new route at Mont Saxonnex, France.

01.01.2009 by Planetmountain.com

In mid December the British climbers Nick Bullock and Neil Brodie established 'Who needs sex, we get hotaches' WI6 100m at Mont Saxonnex, France.

British climbers Nick Bullock and Neil Brodie had a successful start to their winter season in the Alps with a series of mixed repeats at the inspiring Mont Saxonnex crag located in Franc's Haute-Savoie close to Chamonix , before going on to establish their 'Who needs sex, we get hotaches' WI6 100m.

The line is the fully frozen version of two dry tool climbs, M6 Sunar (M7 )and L’axe du male (M8) and is believed to be the first time it has formed completely. 'Who needs sex, we get hotaches' is the second Bullock & Brodie creation at this crag: in January 2008 the duo established Brodie's Patience (WI 6).
