Steve McClure adds 9a to Malham Cove, England

di

British climber Steve McClure has made the first ascent of the extension to Raindogs, 9a at Malham Cove, England. The new sports climb is called Rainshadow.

British climber Steve McClure continues to make a name for himself for top-end first ascents.

His most recent creation is the extension to one of Britains most famous 8a's, "Raindogs" at Malham Cove's Central Wall, which now weighs in at a mighty 9a.

McClure required 22 days spread out over two years to complete his third 9a first ascent, after Northen Lights, Kilsney (2000) and Mutation, Raven's Tor (1998).
