/ How many British Climbers have climbed Fitzroy
I was idly wondering the other day how many British Climber's have climb Fitzroy.
To my knowledge:
James Monypenny - Supercannaleta
Larry Derby (USA), Ian Wade, Guy Lee, Dave Nicol, Eddie Birch, and Mo Anthonie - Anglo American (FA)
Chris Jones - California (FA with Chouinard et al)
Ben Bransby - Slovak Route
Tim Neill and Matt Stygall - Franco/Argentina
Tom Livingstone and Tony Stone - Supercannaleta
Callum Coldwell-story - Afanassieff
Pete Graham and Ben Silvestre - Mate, Porro y Todo lo Demás
Leo Holding and Kevin Thaw - North Pillar
Andy Cave and Adam Wainwright- Not sure which route
I'd be interested to know if there are anymore lurking out there...
P.s: to get on the list the climber in question has got to have summited...
And I wonder just how many more have, like me, failed! My dream mountain.......
Surprisingly few. More than have summitted Cerro Torre though, that is a very select group.
> Dave Gladwin, Supercannaleta
Opps... Sorry Dave. Especially bad as I first met him at the bottom of that routes, after he'd climbed it, and I'd failed on it...
Joris Volmer & Malcolm Airey climbed the Franco/Argentina I think in 2015?
Any more dark horses lurking out there?
Just seen on DMM’s Facebook that Pete Graham and Ben Silvestre have climbed Telhuelche in El Falco.
This Alpine Conditions page gives a summary of what is being climbed at the moment, what is 'in' nick and what the prospects are...
New surveys have prompted a number of changes to the Deweys, the list of the 500m summits in England and Wales. If you're bagging them, then you need to read on...
