Next up on our day of Top 3's we are getting rid of the bolts and going trad climbing, this is who we think have been at the top of their game in the trad world of 2013.
3. James McHaffie and Ben Bransby climb the Long Hope route on the Island of Hoy, Scotland. The route was originally done by Oliver Hill and Ed Drummond but required a lot of aid. Dave Mcleod and Andy Turner went up and freed it in 2011, grading it E10 and saying that the crux was 8b. https://vimeo.com/67457960
2. Nico Favresse climbs "Recovery Drink", the hardest crack climb in Norway. The route is 35m long and situated on the Profile wall in Jossingfjord, in the south of the Country. Rumours of 9a abound...https://vimeo.com/57373499
