Jules Lines is perhaps the greatest free-soloist you’ve never heard of. Hailing from Scotland, his penchant for soloing hard rock-climbs is often discussed
in hushed tones among inner U.K. climbing circles. This summer, Lines added a direct finish to fellow Scotsman Dave Macleod’s Hold Fast, a bold 5.13a
trad route in Glen Nevis. Lines’ new finish bumped the grade to 5.13c, and as for the protection … Lines decided to eschew the ropes all together
