James McHaffie climbs Jerry Moffatt Master’s Wall

James McHaffie did Master’s Wall E7 6b by Jerry Moffat at Clogwyn Du’r Arddu.

A daring and premature attempt, in 2000, on sight, then nothing for more 18 years. The champion James McHaffie has finally written the word end on a project, or rather an idea that he had in mind, doing the famous Master’s Wall by Jerry Moffat, a milestone of the great English master in one of the mecche of Wales, climb to sight by Leo Houlding who also defined the place as “the best crag in the world” (but attention on the English tastes of Leo). Resolved in 1983, Master’s Wall was at the time (but also today) a reckless route and of zero uncertainties, resolved by Moffat deviating at a certain point to the right to avoid what three years after his ascent, Johnny Dawes would free creating the ‘equally famous The Indian Face E9 6c.
