Ned Feehally mantles Ned Zepplin at the Roaches
The video of British rock climber Ned Feehally climbing Ned Zepplin at the Roaches, one of the UK's hardest mantels.
Mantling is a fine art, hugely underestimated and often the downfall of even the strongest climbers. One of the finest and most difficult mantles in the UK is a fairly recent creation and, somewhat surprisingly, happens to be one of the most obvious lines in one of the most popular gritstone areas in the UK, the Roaches. Although Ned Zepplin was graded merely 8A by its first ascentionist Ned Feehally, it requires burley technique few posses. This footage features in the extras included in the Blocheads HD download.
