Ian Vickers Lead | flash 1997
Jenny Woodward Lead | worked 2006
Chris Savage Lead | flash 4th Jun 2011

A great effort by Chris. For the sake of historical accuracy, its worth noting that Chris had climbed The Thumb previously on his 2 week trip (which shares the undercut finishing moves) - see Chris's 8a.nu scorecard.

First British woman to flash 8a+ in the UK.
