With conditions coming good both on the grit and in the mountains we can report that Jonny Argue picked up a repeat of Voyager (Font 8b) at Burbage whilst Matt Helliker did Knuckleduster (VIII/IX) on The Ben.
The cold weather blasting the country recently has been the catalyst for many to start getting out. The marginal holds on The Voyager needs decent connies and Argue reports that they just about held up for his repeat. See a short video below of his ascent.
Farther up north, the recent snow has transformed Scotland into the winter wonderland that many climbers love. Switching from Chamonix, Helliker comments on Fb that he was particularly chuffed with his repeat of Knuckleduster on which he on-sighted and lead every pitch.
