Judge Dredd soloed without pre-placed gear

Last weekend, regular Rocktalker contributer, Mark Sharrat soloed the little known route, Judge Dredd on the Nth Cloud (Roach End) in Staffordshire.The first ascent was originally done with a pre-placed HB Offset 1 and graded E6 6b, Mark dispatched with this to solo it in fine style.Mark thinks the grade for a solo might be E8 as placing the gear on lead would be very difficult.
