Niall McNair recently onsighted The Clown on North Stack Wall at Gogarth in North Wales. This is the first time he has managed to onsight an E7. The Clown was first climbed by John Redhead in 1984, and follows a counter-diagonal line to The Bells, The Bells, which was the first E7 in Britain. Niall's ascent went without incident - except for finding himself unable to move halfway up the route due to the cold, and the RP that protects the crux falling out...

Niall has written about the ascent.
