Death Wish | E7 Trad climb at Blue Scar


Ascents

4 recorded ascents.

Climber Style FA Ascent Date
Pete Gomersall Lead (Worked) 19 Sep 1980
Phil Davidson Lead (Onsight) 19 Sep 1982

Second ascent. One of the first E7 onsights in the UK and exactly two years after the first ascent.

Phil did this on-sight exactly two years after the first ascent. It was the same day that Gommy [Pete Gomersall] put up The Great White. There was no peg to clip as the route to the right, Stairway to Heaven, didn't exist. Gommy held his ropes. I even have a black and white photo of Phil on that ascent. [1]
