First ascent.

One of the ones I'm still most proud about is Ethiopia...I bolted it in the morning then gave it one shot at about 1 o'clock and got through to the second bolt [ed: from where the route leaves India?], fell off, came back down then packed up and thought I'd go home. But then I decided "Stuff it, I'll have another go" and then did it next shot.

I'd done India like a million times so it wasn't challenging having to do India first.
