Rhapsody Repeated

From ScottishClimbs

Canadian Sonny Trotter has been in and out of the UK media over the last year in his attempts to repeat Rhapsody, E11, first climbed by Dave MacLeod. On his recent assault he was close to success before others south of the border came close and the purity of the line came into question. Undeterred, Sonny battled onwards - extending his trip twice before topping out successfully on the 9th June.

This has been one of the most public hard ascents so far in climbing as many followed Sonny's progress, thoughts and frustration on the line on his blog. Unusually for the UK community he has gained tonnes of support in his attempts (see UKC thread). His ascent has been filmed by Hotaches Productions, who have also followed his progress on the route over the past couple of years.
