2013 Hold Fast, Hold True E10 (Solo) 28 Jun 2013 (approx)

Prior to making the first ascent Jules took a very spicy fall, fortunately he walked away unscathed.

It's a world class solo for sure. Grade wise I thought it to be around 8a/8a+ with the direct finish though do not do an awful lot of sport climbing, the top section is a grade easier than the lower section but obviously way higher and so puts at least half an E-grade on top of the lower E9 section. I'm really pleased to have finally done it, for me to climb it everything had to come together as I'm not as strong as Macleod or Birkett who can power their way out of trouble.
