Steve McClure Climbing Hubble at Raven Tor

Always special to see why so few climbers dare to climb Hubble and succeed as well! Steve McClure explains why this route is so special. Few moves, all of a revolutionary intensity, linked on 14 June 1990 by a extraordinary Moon (in version rasta) who with this masterpiece produced the world's first 8c+. Even today the route stoically resists attempts (just ask Adam Ondra) and in its 22-year history, the route has been climbed a mere 6 times. All by Brits, of course: Malcolm Smith, John Gaskins, Steve Dunning, Richard Simpson and, in 2009, Steve McClure who explains here why this route is so special. Zourze: planetmountain.com
