Neil Mawson Attempts "Meshuga" (E9/5.12D, RX)
Few climbing venues require the commitment and boldness of England's Peak District Gritstone. The marginal protection and strict no bolt ethic creates a proving ground for climbers who willingly test not only their physical strength, but their mental fortitude as well. For this Weekend Whipper, we visit the famed Meshuga (5.12d, R/X) at Black Rocks. Neil Mawson goes for the lead and demonstrates why this route has such a formidable reputation.
