So we are now into weeks 8 & 9 since the thumb injury which kept me out of climbing for about 2 months and I've finally started trying to free the start to The Whore of Babylon at Raven's Tor which would shortly become the hardest route in the world and the first 9a. In my diary I refer to Raven's Tor as RT and the Whore of Babylon as the Whore.  The route is hard straight of the deck and only about 6 moves long and the number's in my diary refer to the moves with move 3 being the crux move. It looks like I made good progress very quickly.           Scan 6   If you are interested to see some video footage of Hubble check out the film Mammut made of Sean McCol's attempt to climb it here
