Craig Davies has climbed a right hand finish to The Lad. Ladette (7B) rolls over rightwards from the jug to gain the rounded aręte before finishing direct. Craig climbed both this and The Lad Low from a sitting start – no harder than the crouch start Mark Katz had done but certainly better. See page 374 in the new Mountain Crags guide.
Ladette looks, at least to this editor’s eye, pretty burly at the grade – when pushed on this, Craig admitted: ”it may be 7B+?”
Craig also climbed a neat little slopey aręte over the back. This went at 6C+ from a sds at the bottom left side.
