He made his mark in the vertical world during the sixties with new routes that included A Dream of White Horses, T.Rex, Great Arete and Archangel. In 1970 he established the audacious Long Hope Route on the distant isle of Hoy and two years later climbed The Arch Wall on Norway´s famous Troll Wall.
