Video: Thorgill And Tripsdale Action

  Tripsdale - worthy of a guidebook of its own from Dave Warburton on Vimeo.
Quite a lot is occurring at the moment. Below is a video of a new E6 at Thorgill. Very bold, easy climbing. Not a particularly fine line, but with some alright moves. Then the video above documents a pretty big day out we had in Tripsdale. High Crag has a lot of very hard and steep projects - the last bit of the video is me top roping an circa E7 6c thing, which has a very hard start. If there are any really strong boulderers out there with about 10 pads, this could be wizard.

We also found a massive boulder field (has this been found before?!) and climbed a new (stiff) E5 6c, which was top notch, taking the left-line of the brilliant Tarn Hole buttress. It's great to put stuff up at Tarn Hole. The main line there, A Reach Too Far, is a stonking highball problem and this new line offers a similarly-veined route at a harder grade.
