Striv­ing for the Moon

Gripped - - NEWS -

Quentin Lind­field-roberts made the likely first solo of Striv­ing for the Moon VI WI5/6 on Mount Tem­ple in a one-day push. He’d at­tempted the route a few years ear­lier, but was un­suc­cess­ful. His car-to-car time was just over 20 hours and he thanks Alik Berg for break­ing trail into and out of the moun­tain. The big route was first climbed in 1992 by Barry Blan­chard and Ward Robin­son and wasn’t re­peated un­til 2004 by Scott Sem­ple, Greg Thaczuk and Ea­monn Walsh in a 36-hour car-to-car push. Lind­field-roberts re­ceived the John Lauch­lan Award for a trip to the Hi­malayas in 2019.
