New Bigwall 5.13 in Norway is Splitter

Dave MacLeod, Jacob Cook and Calum Muskett have made the first free ascent of Disco 2000 on Blåmman, near Tromso in the northern part of Norway.

The 13-pitch 5.13 was freed over three days, after aid climbing and working the lower part of the route.

MacLeod wrote the following on his blog: “With the all the route now freed, we would have returned to make a single day redpoint which is definitely possible. But after more days of rain, the face was soaking again, so we didn’t get to even try.

“I was still really happy that we managed to take every moment of dry weather to get all the pitches freed in the 50 hour, rain interrupted sessions we did get.” For more about the ascent, visit here.
