In 1994, top U.K. climber Jerry Moffat visited Canada and established the now-popular Big Kahuna 5.13d at Lion’s Head. Six years before that, he made history in Smith Rock and made the first ascent of a hard new climb in Frankenjura.

In 1987 and 1988, Moffat was one of the world’s strongest sport climbers and after climbing the three 5.14a’s in France (Le Rage de Vivre,  Le Minimum and La Spectre des Surmutant), he visited Oregon where he ticked Scarface 5.14a, White Wedding 5.14a and To Bolt or Not To Be 5.14a. He was the first climber to send the three 5.14s of France and three of the U.S.A.

Also in 1988, he made the first ascent of Stone Love 5.14a at Frankenjura’s Edlorado crag. In this short film, Marco and Andrea Zanone attempt to link the route’s pockets and low-percentage holds for a redpoint.
