At Cambusbarron Niall McNair successfully re-climbed the former sport route Sexed Up at E6 6b. The line was publicly debolted by Booboo a couple of years ago who made a good job at concealing their existence. Niall's lead might have been a good deal more exciting the day before when in practice a large tombstone sized part of the arete pulled off while he was attached to it. What remained lowered the difficulty slight to F7b+ climbing.

Meanwhile Dave Macleod has been back out in Glen Nevis after a recent work stint to complete Inimitable E8 6c on Styx Buttress. Dave describes the ascent on his blog.

Furthermore, Ben Litster has joined the fast growing club of climbers to have climbed Requiem. Last week he made his ascent placing all the gear on lead, becoming the 4th or 5th (after Macleod, Cassidy, Trotter, McClure?). Given the growing number of strong climbers visiting Dumby hopefully more and more will sample one of Scotland's greatest traditional climbs, which still needs its first onsight ascent....
