Climbing Snippets

Dave Graham has made an impressive come-back from injury. After a 4 month lay-off, the longest spell of non-climbing time since he took up the sport, he climbed Scarred For Life, V14 / Font 8B+. Angela Eiter, indoor competition climbing queen and recent winner of the inaugural Arco Legends ´indoor climber of the year´ title, has turned her talent to real rock and made an impressive onsight ascent of Skyline at Burs (Austria), f8b. Source: 8a.nu Adrian Berry has sent us the following email: I was taking photos of Great Wall, and swung around onto the classic E6, A Midsummer Night?s Dream, and thought I?d check out the condition of the pegs. I tested the top peg by clipping it and twisting it with my hand, and the eye split easily, probably won?t hold bodyweight. The others looked no better. I cleaned up the Great Wall belay whilst I was there, and removed a whole bunch of old tat. One of the pegs on Midsummer Night´s Dream.
