Dani Arnold on "Anubis" (XII, 12)
the ascent's video of "Anubis", the Dave MacLeod's scary test piece25 November 2016
This pasted winter Dani Arnold has repeated the super scary "Anubis", a mixed route by Dave MacLeod
The cold is arrived and the ice is about to be formed: there's not a better moment to take a time to watch "Anubis" video, the hardest mixed route of the scottish mountain Ben Nevis.
The route, repeated for the first time the last March, waited to be climbed again since the 2010, when was opened by the strong scottish climber Dave MacLeod.
Anubis is 220 m long and protecteable only with "fast protections": the psychological effort is super high, comparable to the physical.
Climb this line in summer could satisfy most of the climbers (E8 6c), imagine in winter!
Who knows if this winter will see another brave climber gambling on this test piece...
