First redpoint!

Ted Kingsnorth:

Pete Dawson did True North 1st redpoint this afternoon in about 2 hours. It was one of the most impressive redpoints I have seen. Pete had never been on the bottom pitch before, Full Tilt 8b. We gave him beta for all of True North and he went up it bolt to bolt in about 20 - 30 mins working out the moves. Then after 2 people had had their own redpoints, Pete did it from bottom to top!! Our jaws were pretty much on the floor when he lowered back down!
