© Ian Dunn NEWSFLASH: Britain's First 9b by Steve McClure (UKC News)
Steve McClure has finally ticked his long-term super project at Malham Cove to establish the UK's first 9b. The line starts up Raindogs 8a, negotiates the crux of Rainshadow 9a, then leads up Batman 9a/+ before finishing up Bat Route 8c. Steve has not yet named the route, but has referred to it as 'The Easy Easy' project in the past. We hope to hear from him shortly to provide more details.
