Ollie Torr crushes

Ollie Tor has been crushing one of the hardest problems in the Peak District with a quick ascent of the V13, 'Fat Lip' at Raven Tor.

This late in the season conditions haven’t been ideal and Ollie had to change his beta between sessions, telling the UKC:

“I’ve been falling off the same moves since first getting on it and have had to improvise beta around wet holds each session."

The problem which crosses the iconic roof at Raven Tor has only seen a handful of repeats since Steve McClure put it up in 2007.

Ollie is known as being a super strong climber with ‘mutant fingers’ and is currently training crack climbing legend Tom Randall. With these two pairing up expect to see more hard sends in the future.
