06.03.2006 by

Rich Simpson makes 6th ascent of Careless Torque Fb8a+, while Tyler Landman makes first repeat of Ben Moon's Voyager Fb 8b at Burbage North.

Gritstone in the news once again. Last week saw the fifth ascent of Careless Torque Fb8a+ at the hands of John Welford. This week saw the sixth ascent, this time by none other that Rich Simpson who, unlike the other repeaters, sent the highball boulder problem without prior toprope practice. Congratulations.

Tyler Landman was in the news last week, too, with his repeat of The Ace Fb 8b. The fifteen year old capitalised on his form and made the first repeat of Ben Moon's Voyager Fb 8b at Burbage North.
