MacLeod sends latest project!

Ben Nevis

Meet Scottish trad climber Dave Macleod, someone who definitely inspired my interest in climbing. He's been living in the Scottish Highlands with his wife, Claire and projecting a hard 100m route up the Echo Wall on Ben Nevis. I've been following along with all his training and practice this summer on his blog. Monday night, he tied into the lead and sent the first ascent of Echo Wall, a climb he calls "Harder than Rhapsody (or anything else I’ve been on)". He also got an awesome new haircut (possibly to save weight?)
