E10 6c by Dave MacLeod

Dave MacLeod has done Hell and back, E10 6c***, 80metres long with two pitches. French grade should be 8a+ (X), meaning that there is a risk of dying (X). “Yesterday was the scariest day of my life, and the end of the scariest ten days of my life. The impending lead of my ?Great Climb? project on Hell?s Lum crag was hanging over me like a guillotine. It?s the most dangerous lead I?ve ever done, and right now, I?m not sure exactly how I feel about it. Falling off from the crux or above would have meant death. 80 feet to the gully bed.” Very interesting story and nice pics at davemacleod.comPicture: Claire MacLeod
