Paul Robinson climbing Brad Pitt and The Ace at Stanage
Two short videos of Paul Robinson repeating the classic gritstone boulder problems Brad Pitt and The Ace at Stanage Edge in England.
During a brief visit to the UK's Peak District in January 2011 the American climber Paul Robinson made short work of two of the most famous testpieces at The Plantation at Stanage: The Ace and Brad Pitt. The Ace was freed by Jerry Moffatt in 2002 while Brad Pitt was freed in 1995 after months of effort by Jason Myers via an enormous dyno. Visiting Frenchman Marc Le Menestrel discovered an easier sequence bringing the grad to 7C+ but, given the ease and speed (10 seconds!) with which Robinson sent this problem, next time he might set his sights on the sit down start. Added by German Thomas Willenberg, this 8B+ has hardly any repeats to its name.
