21/07/2013 Matt Cousins soloed 'Chimera' (English 7a, and often referred to as the hardest route in the South East) at High Rocks, just outside Tunbridge Wells on the Southern Sandstone. In terms of significance for the area, this is probably the most significant solo ascent on the Sandstone, and the SS community is buzzing from Matt's send yesterday. The ascent was videoed from 2 perspectives (one captures the whole ascent) that can be found here: and here: Also climber Jacob Cook leads an expedition to Greenland to climb some big walls!
