Longhope Route Direct E9 (Alternate Leads) 25th May 2022

Robbie and partner Alex Moore swapped leads on the lower section. Robbie then lead the crux pitch placing the gear before abbing the pitch so Alex could also lead it (on Robbie's gear, to save time).

Live Fast, Die Young E7 (Lead) 14th July 2022

Second ascent.

Robbie spent some time cleaning up the bold mid section of the route and found several small wires and a couple of cam placements that made the route significantly safer than how it was climbed on the first ascent.

After his ascent Robbie supplied Alex Moore with his beta and Alex was able to flash the route!
