Dave MacLeod has been up to his usually antics again - he has completed an old Duncan Macallum project at Glen Ogle. The line between Digitial Quartz (which he recently made the second ascent of) and Spiral Tribe on the Diamond buttress is now named Cease Fire and has been graded 8a+. After a failed attempt in appauling, muggy conditions on day one, Dave sent the route on his second redpoint of day two. He reckons that "It's a great wee route (2 or 3 star)". That means that you strong boys and girls should get on it before Glen Ogle becomes engulfed by water and winter again.
