Deep Water Soloing Festival at Bornholm: Update!

The Bornholm DWS festival held in Denmark has secured British legend Steve McClure to give a lecture on Friday the 1st of August 2008. Steve will also be participating in the DWS competition.

"Steve McClure was first inspired by the Dawes slate masterpiece 'The Very Big and The Very Small,' Steve’s focus shifted from trad to the hardest rock routes possible. Having recently packed in his job, Steve discusses how his motivation has moved on from the very small, super hard redpoints in Britain to long onsights in Europe, and more recently to the very big trad walls of Greenland. Steve uses a combination of video, photographs, music, and his own mega-modest commentary to show how he’s got to where he is today."*
