Bold Scotsman Robbie Phillips has climbed 5.14, so a route as slabby as Peak Technique (E6 6b) in Northumberland, England, should be a cinch, right? Well,
not exactly. This route has about as few holds as it has gear placements! As Phillips piles tenuous move on top of tenuous move, he gets further and
further out from his last piece of pro, but then he slips and takes what he says was a corker of a fall.
Missed all the mats too so landed flat on my back! says Phillips. Winded me proper but I think I just got a bruised rib and some minor back stiffness …
couple of days and it’ll be sorted and back down to finish it off!
Stay safe out there!
