U.K. Climber Solos 600 Routes in a Day

U.K. climber Pete Bridgewood has soloed 600 routes in 10.5 hours of climbing. He visited classic crags such as Castle Naze, Harborough Rocks, Roaches, Gib Tor and Rainster Rocks. He told UKClimbing.com in an interview, “A lot of the climbs I did were onsight solos, so I very quickly found some absolute beauties, such as ‘Snail Buttress’ and ‘Nelsons Nemesis’ both at Birchen and the odd one that never really gets done like ‘The Overhang’ at Brassington and ‘The Snake’ at The Newstones. I suppose without realising it, I was climbing continuous classics throughout.” For the full interview visit here.

In Canada, the most recorded route or pitch solos were by Alex Honnold in 2014 when he soloed 290 pitches to celebrate his 29th birthday.
