Success for Parnell & Emmett

Matt Heason writes, “Tim Emmett and Ian Parnell have climbed a new all free route up the huge South East pillar of Kedar Dome (6830m) in India´s Gangotri region. The boys climbed the route onsight, no falls and with no aid in 7 days.Tim led the crux pitch a smooth corner at over 6000m which he rated at E3/4 6a. “It´s definately the most demanding piece of climbing that I´ve managed without falls, like climbing Zukator with a rucksac and a plastic bag over my head.” ( Source: PlanetFear )
