Adam Hocking repeats Return of the King (E9 6C)

Report by Ned Feehally
Sunday 31st July 2011



This incredible Dave Birkett route is found on the East buttress of Scafell (the Lake District). It was first climbed in 2006 and has remained unrepeated (like many Birkett routes) until now. 

There is footage of Birkett's first ascent of this route in the film Set in Stone

Maybe the 2nd ascent of Welcome to the Cruel World (the E9 next door) is on the cards?
