Rich’s new Scottish Grade IX

Hot news this week is that Rich and Guy Robertson have just put up a big new line on remote Beinn a Bhuird in the Southern Cairgorms. The Scent IX, 8 has been one of Guy’s projects for a while and is a summer HVS rock route.

Having made one attempt already, Rich made the long drive up to Scotland before cycling into a bothy, catching a few hours sleep, then nailing the route before heading back to the car and driving all the way back to Sheffield over night!
