From ScottishClimbs

Jump to: navigation, search

Jonny Stocking, the climbing wunderkind from Kilwinning, is currently in Spain enjoying the good spring conditions to put all his training and talent to good use. At only 17 he has bagged his first 8b+, joining the very short (but growing list) of Scots to climb this grade, with an ascent of Rollito-Sharma in the cave of Santa Linya. The next day, without pausing for breath he bagged his first 8b with a fast and efficent ascent of Non-Stop at Terradets. He is still out there, so big things are still possible.
