MacLeod and Mullin 'Duel'

From ScottishClimbs

On Saturday 26th October Dave MacLeod and Alan Mullin made an on-sight 2nd ascent of 'The Duel' IX, 9 in Glen Coe. Dave led the crux pitch through a thin icy veneered wall, luckily there wasnt too much snow around so placements were easy to see. In contrast Alan's pitch up an off-width was well plastered with snow in comparison to the first ascent conditions. Dave also managed to dispense with the side runner used on the wall pitch making things a tad more serious.

Dave notes that he feels the ascent is significant as to his knowledge this is the first time a Scottish IX has been onsight flashed, or even repeated at all.
