18 Aug Steve McClure repeats Hubble (F8c+)
Steve McClure is now one of the select few (Ben Moon, Malcolm Smith, John Gaskins, Steve Dunning, Richard Simpson) to have repeated Ben Moon’s Hubble, 8c+(8B), at Raven Tor outside Sheffield, UK.
First climbed back in 1990, it was the most difficult route in the world at the time. Some say it’s comparable to Action Directe in difficulty.The route is a short (10 meters) problem of limestone in Raven Tor.
