MacLeod adds Glen Nevis E9

Dave MacLeod has climbed another difficult line in Scotland, this time on Whale Rock in Glen Nevis.´Hold Fast´ follows micro edges up an off-vertical blank wall, with a bouldery technical 7a crux 18 feet off the deck with no gear and a sting in the tail rockover higher up.It was a long standing project for Dave which only succumbed after five visits and “being in the right place at the right time”, with perfect conditions being very cold and dry with no wind.Dave has suggested a top rope grade of F7c+ and an on-sight leade grade of E9 7a.
