Video - James Pearson Working Gerty Berwick

James Working Gerty Berwick Feb 2008

Congratulation to James Pearson who claimed the second ascent of Gerty Berwick (E9), or as I like to call it “Gerty Berty”. I had been calling it Twlons for the last year since I first filmed James working the line.  (TWLONS – The Wall Left Of New Statesman).

James on Twlons Feb 2009

It was a very cold windy day in February last year, the day after James had lead The Groove. We called by Ilkley and James worked the moves on a shunt. I hung on a rope and got blown around by a freezing wind whilst I tested out some camera angles.  It was a rather grey overcast day, but luckily James brightens the shot up by wearing a black top and grey pants! 
The result of that cold day is this 3 min video clip below:

Maybe some of the hardest moves on a grit route?
