Positron Traverse (V4) one-legged

01 April, 2014
A short film about a boulderer completing a V3/4 traverse wouldn't normally draw much attention. But it becomes the exception when a paraclimber does it with literally only one leg and no prosthetic limb. George Sewell's film focuses on Phillip Mitchell's determination to complete the Positron Traverse at The Breck. George said: "Positron Traverse is either a V3 or V4 depending who you ask and where you look, but this was done the entirely eliminate way on just the break for hands, so V4." This sandstone Merseyside crag is well-known for being where Al Rouse begun climbing in the late sixties and developed his steely finger strength.
