[VIDEO] Steve McClure on RainMan, 9b
The integral video of realization19 April 2018
In June 2017 we had shown the first images as a preview but now the integral video is available. It was June 2017 and contrary what was said in the registry office, Steve McClure still climbed like a kid, so that he managed to free RainMan, the first English 9b, at Malham Cove that connects the pre-existing Raindogs, Rainshadow, Batman and Bat Route , 8a, 9a, 9a/+ and 8c respectively. If we consider that already in 1998 he climbed Mutation to Raven Tor, it can be said that this climber started with 9a more or less 20 years ago, a goal not really within everyone's reach, and he is responsible in fact for many of the English super-hard routes like Northertn Light and North Star in Kilnsey or RainShadow and Overshadow in Malham Cove.
