Adam Lincoln makes "probably the second pure ascent" of Cool Moon (E7 6c)

On Sunday Adam Lincoln made what´s probably the second ascent of Cool Moon at Curbar without the side runners. The grade with side runners is E6 6c; without, E7 6c. (That was first done by Thomas de Gay, who soloed it in 1998.) After his headpoint [so, not quite E7 – UKC Ed.] Adam said: “The line isn´t the most striking but the moves are brilliant.”Then, having watched Adam on it, Ryan Pasquil went on to flash it.You can read up about the route at Jon Read´s excellent grit pages at
