In this short film by Dave Sutcliffe Jordan Buys makes the first ascent of Time and Tide, E7 7A or highball 7c if you prefer) in less than ideal conditions - sleet - at Brimham rocks on 10th Dec 2012.
Jordan writes " Did a new route yesterday at Brimham, Dave Sutcliffe showed me this last weekend and I was immediately impressed and could not believe it had not been climbed. Then when I had a feel I realised why, progress from the perfect crimps to the top is guarded by a micro sloper. Its a fair pop to the top above what could be a sketchy landing if you did not use pads. The day was a bit epic, sleet showers kept on soaking the top and stopping play. Once the weather seemed to clear I had chance to get it on a oner on toppy, my plan was to go for a pre solo walk round Brimham to get my head sorted but a quick look at the incoming weather forced me into the desesion of either get the top covered with a pad or just get it done. As the sleet started to pitter patter on the pads and the top sloper I chalked up, cleaned my shoes and bashed out the solo.
Its a quality addition to Brimham and if you want to look at it as a boulder problem font 7c might well describe its difficulty. Ah yea and it climbs the wall to the right of Tender Homecoming, the old classic E8 7a."
