To Hell and Back

Dave MacLeod has now completed the line in Hell's Lum that he was to have climbed live on the BBC last weekend. He has called the route To Hell and Back, and feels it is worth three stars, at a grade of E10 6c. Though the name of the crag provides a ready theme for the route name, it would seem to express Dave's experience of Thursday's lead and the lengthy build-up to it - and particularly his impression of what those belaying and filming were going through as he climbed the dangerous first pitch. Dave's thoughts on his latest ascent (and a route description for those aspiring to repeat it) can be read, as ever, on his blog.
