Last weekend Pete Robins climbed the obvious connection of Hatch Life into Left Wall High in Parisella’s Cave. This went at a tough 8A grade. To see a film of the ascent go to Doylo’s blog.

Pete also got the second ascent of Chris Doyle’s Tramps Tea Party. He confirmed the quality of the problem but admitted that for him it felt easier than the 8A grade suggested by Chris. Pete has a reputation for harsh grading so it will be interesting to see what other people think.

Pete used a rubber knee pad, as Chris had, but reckoned it could be done bareback at a slightly harder grade.
