If you watched last week’s Weekend Whipper, you saw Robbie Phillips take a nasty fall off the bold slab, Peak Technique (E6 6b), in Northumberland, England.
Well, in case you thought the route looked a little easy from that angle, here’s another perspective of a different climber once again tempting fate
on the same bold slab. After Pete places what he says are two bomber tri-cams and another cam in a shallow flake, he sets off for a no-holds dance
up the dangerous face. But just like Phillips, Pete has a little slip that costs him …
In his words: “After I had stopped crying I wanted to get back on, but my mates talked me out of it by saying we were going to the pub lol.”
Stay safe out there!
