New E2 For Ben Crom 30/4/11

A new E2 at Ben Crom. Another new route has been established at Ben Crom by Craig Hiller. 'Golden Wonder', E2 5b **, is situated on the far left side of Round Gully Wall. It is a bold route that takes the line of least resistance up an almost hidden slab. It requires a confident lead for the steady 5b leader and is best approached by abseil.

New E3 for Ben Crom 25/4/11

Ben Crom gets a new E3. On the 25/4/2011 Craig Hiller added an excellent new route to Round Gully. The line looked naturally clean and was originally attempted onsight though a fall soon sorted that out and the onsight vanished. The crux is moving through a short steep section and gaining a slab followed by an airy top out on an amazing arete feature. Craig has several other lines cleaned and ready to go so watch this space.

3rd Ascent of 'I am Spiderman'

In October 2010, Dan OíNeill made the third ascent of Ricky Bellís ĎI am Spidermaní on Binnianís North Tor. The second ascent was done by Ali Wilson. This is a significant repeat as many good climbers have attempted it and the majority have failed to do the crux move which involves using a mono proving to be nails. It is interesting to note that the two ascents since the first were done by lanks (dare I say it).Visit the new routes section for a route description of I am Spiderman
