Major New Route on Black Ladders


From DMM website: "Dave Hesleden and Adam Wainwright have filled in the obvious blank space between Western Gully and Ypres on the Black Ladders (Ysgolion Duon – Galles – UK). The route, Birdsong VI 6, 320 m. takes a direct line through the snowy gangway of Ypres and up the front of the massive buttress above it." read more on DMM


During 2004\2005 winter, together with French climber Bruno Sourzac, Dave Hesleden  has done  in Creag Meagaidh (Scotland) the FA of Extacy (VIII,8) on the big rock wall between The Fly and  Smith’s gully.
