LLandudno Joe

Joe Möhle opened the bold and impressive "Zero Gravity" at Llundudno. The line involves an intimidating dyno above a slab which leads straight into the ocean below.

Previously unreported, Joe also opened the impressive off-width roof crack "Amazing Grace" in a cave in Llundudno in mid 2005, after about a year of on-and-off attempts. The grade has not yet been determined as the problem awaits a second ascent, but it's pretty tricky...

More for Redhill

The recent fire at Redhill has revealed a few more boulders with some good problems. Emile Esterhuizen opened two new lines, "Gom Jabar" 7B+ is a 14 move roof problem on sharp crimps and jugs and "Onime" 7B+ is a powerful line through a black roof.

Then, at the Mushroom area, Edvinas Šmigelskis opened the excellent "High Maintenance" 7C, which climbs the micro crimps and poor slopers to the right of "Eyeball".
