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?
