E8 at Frogatt – now E9

Planet-fear.com report that Ben Heason (perhaps the 21st century´s most prolific grit climber) has completed his project at Frogatt. The climb takes a direct line between Turd Burgler and Dogs Die in Hot Cars and has been named ´Ozbound´, presumably becuase Ben is off on an extended tour down under very shortly.A grade of E8 7a has been suggested [Ben now feels that the route warrants E9.Ed] Ben has been writing the new Frogatt guidebook and has nearly ticked the crag, making numerous repeats (many of which have been on-sight) of E6´s and E7´s over the past few months.Not bad for a chap with stumpy thumbs!
