Here we go with the report of the secret blitz to the Peak District of the 007 Dutch agent Jorg Verhoeven
by Jorg Verhoeven
Straight after Arco me private jet (ryan air) lifted off towards London, from where I drove (on the left side of the road!!) to the Peak District, to get on some lovely gritstone.
I can proudly anounce that I haven't broken anything, because being alone made my life rather unsafe sometimes. For two days The new Welsh climbing spirit came over to join me on the grit, making it possible to use a rope for once, stat soloing.
Beside lots of boulders, of which an 8a & some 7c+'s (Staminaband
, Ben's traverse
, Ben's roof
, The terrace
), I could do the famous Ulysses
, the 10 meter high, not protected perfect angle, with the grade E6 6b
(scary enough for me). After that I even managed to on sight an E6 6b
, the 'Wall of sound
', with not much more wires to place...
I secretly tried some other 'routes', with High E grade, which are still to come, have to safe some'in for the next time, aye! (just kiddin')
