Dave MacLeod on FFA of Bongo Bar (5.13b, 400 meters)


Scottish climber Dave MacLeod recently made the first free ascent of the 400-meter, 5.13b aid route Bongo Bar on Blamman, Norway. He cruised up the first two pitches, rated 5.13c, but had a little trouble with wet holds on the third, crux pitch (5.13b). Still, he redpointed the route, leading every pitch save for no. 6 (5.11).
