Kevin Thaw breaks heel on Obsession Fatale

Perhaps best known for his repeats of some of El Cap´s most difficult aid routes, including the Reticent Wall (VI 5.9 A5) and Plastic Surgery Disaster (VI 5.10 A5), the last place that you´d expect ex-pat and North Face sponsored Kevin Thaw to injur himself would be on the grit!Sources close to whom Climbing magazine once described as the “best all-around climber in Britain”, said that Kevin was more embarrassed than distressed about breaking his heel falling from the last moves of Obsession Fatale (E7 6c) last weekend.
