Ruthven Boulder News

Well done to Mike Lee for finally solving the big roof of the Ruthven boulder and its horrific slopers. Mike was filmed by Richie Betts completing the problem, at a grade of 7c, the hardest straight-up on the boulder to date. It takes the roof through the flake to the sloping top-out just left of Barry Manilow. He called it QED... and he demonstrates it so...

Looks like an awesome prob, but to my mind the real outstanding unclimbed line at the Stane is the proper direct on Barry - i.e. without any of the big holds at the start.

By the way John speak to Labowski as he's cleaned and climbed a few new probs up there this summer

Cheers, Guy
