10-Year-Old Toby Roberts Becomes Youngest Brit To Climb 8a | Climbing Daily, Ep. 608

18th November 2015
18th Nov 2015
Earlier this month, climber Toby Roberts became the youngest Brit in history to climb the grade of 8a/5.13b. His successful ascent of 'Raindogs' at Malham Cove in Yorkshire made headlines in the UK so we decided to grab a word with Toby and his dad to find out more about it. 'Raindogs' has seen a lot of ascents from younger climbers and while it might suit those with more strength than reach, it is by no means a pushover. In fact, the last section is so desperate that it is considered acceptable to grab the chains and still claim the ascent. Famously, Chris Sharma, unfamiliar with this chain-grabbing beta narrowly missed the onsight when he tried it, so Toby finds himself in some pretty big company. If you'd like to learn more about Toby's climbing, you can follow him on his website,
