Master Pearson repeated Pot Of Gold today at Longridge. (V11) Again preferring the mono finger lock. 4th ascent.

16 year old Shauna Coxsey made light work of a string of problems in the high Font 7s, most notably Alta at Isatis.  Although there is some discussion about the grade of Alta (it is written at Font 7C+ in one guide and Font 7B+ in another), it is still a powerful proposition and Shauna dispatched it in just a few tries.

Shauna also made a quick ascent of Carnage sit start (Font 7C), at Bas Cuvier and the very crimpy Rubis sur Angle (Font 7B+) at Gorge au Chat. In addition she climbed a string of Font 7B's including the burly Biceps Mou at Bas Cuvier.

From ukc, i think this is a pretty good effort!

It's about time Shauna started crushing properly i.e outdoors. I've enjoyed watching her progress over the last few years and am sure she'll climb much much harder soon. Good work!

I agree, but I wish people would stop climbing Carnage assis, its dog turd and its like taking easy pickings.

Agreed but you can see the temptation if you can cruise carnage!! I thought alta was the really good thing here, the main move is burly!

no I can't... I'd move over to Berezina, or go for a walk for 10 minutes and get stuck into Noir Desir, or Tristesse, or Big Boss. Maybe fourmis?

Just says easter! Everyone i know says it was boiling out there so extra waddage points!

no I can't... I'd move over to Berezina, or go for a walk for 10 minutes and get stuck into Noir Desir, or Tristesse, or Big Boss. Maybe fourmis?

I know but the temptation is still there, a quick 7c tick in the bag and then onto the next!! Dont be such a scrouge paul!  :lol:

If you mean continuing up the arete rather than going right to then do the dyno bit then i believe the answer is no, no one has done it.

no, ark royal not yet been repeated on the arete.

rich, graviton is not 7b until the day all the bottom holds fall off. 7a is still a good effort for dom, it is no harder than this
theres a lot of big grades goin around at the moment?

By the sounds of it he repeated it like Katz did, starting off the slot at the bottom of the ramp.
