Andy Turner recently made the second ascent of Greg Boswell's Powerdab (M13), making it one of the hardest drytooling routes in the UK. Turner, who is in training for the Ice Climbing World Cup, took three sessions to climb it, this being his first M13. Be sure to check out the crazy video of Boswell climbing the steep and unrelenting Powderdab.
