Emma Twyford konnte sich einen Traum erfüllen und eine ihre ganz großen Ziele, Trad-Route „Nightmayer“ (E8 6c) in Dinas Cromlech (Nordwales) klettern. Vermutlich war es die erst 5. Begehung der Route überhaupt. Die Begehung gelang ihr trotz recht schlechter Bedingungen, da der untere Teil der Wand noch recht feucht war.
Emma meint dazu: „That dream line! One that has eluded me with the weather and work over the last couple of years. I’d first seen and heard about „Nightmayer“ (E8 6c) watching the video of @nicofavresse taking some air miles off the head wall whilst nick bullock looked on. Maybe this is what put people off for so many years. I first seriously thought about this route when Alex mason was looking at it and achieved and impressive 3rd ascent followed the next year by @angus.kille with an equally impressive ascent. The Cromlech has an intimidating yet impressive aura with some of the best trad climbing around. This was my last king line on the cromlech that I was mega psyched to try. On the day it still had its spicy moments. Myself and @jamestayloroutdoor rocked up to find a random wet streak on house of god into and out of the porthole. Needless to say this was terrifying on lead as the bottom is bold with small kit. It took a lot of mental effort to change my mental set up for the top hard section but I was ready to fight to the top. Perfect climbing with just the right amount of good kit to run it out and take some good air miles if you fluff it! Thanks to @jamestayloroutdoor for the belay, your next buddy! And @j.bunney for the photo„
