Its been another busy week at Dumbarton. In his remaining days in Scotland Canadian Sonny Trotter decided to reclimb Rhapsody this time placing the gear as he went. After rapid success on this in unseasonably cool and fresh weather he continued to complete the trio of finishes by climbing the left finish. Cop out E10 6c was claimed with F8a+ climbing.

Steve McClure was also back in town after a visit a fortnight ago. This time he came away with the third ascent of Rhapsody on his second redpoint of the day.

After their ascents both climbers have reflected on the grade confirming the F8c/+ climbing and tentitively confirming the E11 nature of the fall. Photos and more thoughts on these asecent can be seen/read on the hotaches blog here and on the UKC interview with Steve McClure here.
