Joe clamped up on the aręte of Badgers in the Mist 7C Photo: Sterling collection

Joe Sterling has mopped up a neglected project line at the super steep Craig Pont y Pant (aka: Rhiw Goch) near Dolwyddelan.

Badgers in the Mist 7C tackles the leaning right aręte of the main face from a sds on undercuts. Needless to say this is a very powerful line.

"It goes at about soft 7C, easier than Nazgul's Traverse but not by much.”

Commented Joe.
