More first ascents for MacLeod

At Seanna Mheallan, Torridon

14 July 2009         Dave MacLeod has climbed two more new routes at Seanna Mheallan, Torridon. Kelvinator (E8 6c) according to Dave, involves some pretty unusual moves: " sort of like the move at the top of the groove on Gaia, but a fair bit harder."   The main event was Present Tense (E9 7a), a line which Dave initially thought might weigh in at a mighty E10 until he discovered two tiny runners.   "The discovery of two highly unlikely micro wires eased back the chance of a 15 metre groundfall from the crux to something noticeably under 100%"   Judging by his recent run of new routes, it would seem that MacLeod has the whole of Scotland to himself right now.. He's currently eyeing up a new line that he thinks might warrant E11.   source:ukclimbing.com
