New Nesscliffe E8
« on: September 13, 2017, 09:21:25 pm »
Old school legend Nick Dixon climbed a new E8, Cassini, at Nesscliffe today. I've seen a short clip and it looks superb. While E8 may not seem that impressive anymore I reckon Nick deserves every bit of recognition and credit he gets (which is not as much as it should be).

Amazing, a total hero when I started climbing after seeing the photos of him in the old Staffordshire grit guide. Inspiring to hear. The upper groovelet of 100 setting suns looks impressive also.
