Ben Litster – RequiemUKC News, Jun 2009© Ben Lister CollectionScottish climber Ben Litster has repeated the classic crack climb Requiem at Dumbarton.Requiem is the tough (E7/8 – around F8a+) crack first climbed by Scottish legend Dave Cuthbertson back in 1983.More recently Requiem has been better known as the start to the super hard extension, Rhapsody.Ben commented: „I'm pretty pleased, now I'm going to start really trying Dave's E9 to the left.“UPDATE:More info for those who wanted to know:Ben commented:“I did it placing the gear on lead (minus 2 stuck nuts which just I fell on and now are pretty stuck!). I didn't clip the old preplaced wires at the top because I felt I couldn't stop to place them on lead so felt I couldn't clip them as I went up, which meant it was a bit more scary but still safe!Not sure which ascent it was but the route has so much history it was a great experience!“
