50th Anniversary Ascent of “Right Angle”

Iain Peters – on Pitch 1

Finally here’s the wee video I made to celebrate the 50th anniversary ascent of “Right Angle” at Gurnard’s Head in Cornwall and first climbed on August 26th 1966 by my friend and climbing buddy Iain Peters at the tender age of 17!

The rather ambitious plan on this serious and committing sea-cliff climb was to try and get 50 climbers up the route in a day with some cunning pre-rigging of the gear and belays so all we needed was the weather to play ball. And after a cloudy, blustery start it turned into a lovely bluebird day and a large group of friends, with ages ranging from 8 to 68, turned up and all helped make it a fun-filled event!
