Dave Mason has done Superman, great effort. Vid here.

Nice one Dave but I really hope that video doesn't make it over onto the other channel.
Interesting post Paul, why do you say so?

Dave Mason has done Superman, great effort. Vid here: vimeo.com/61087896

That video made me smile, but not for the climbing. Lovely. Well done.

Nice display of steel by DM.

Big props to Alex too, that is a fine effort! Love the £1000 quid of fuel stat, relating to Malc's ascent, on Doylo's blog too.

Nice write up. It's was interesting to hear why he feels it was the most important climb of his life, it makes it sound like he did it very quickly as well.
Well done Dave!  :strongbench:

Yeah. Jerry fixed it a couple of years ago but it broke again soon after. Shame cos it was a lovely hold.

Superman has changed over the years and after a crucial hold broke it was left to Tim Clifford to re-climb the line in 2004 using a minute left hand crimp.
On the subject of Tim Clifford problems, his Singularity here in Squamish is still unrepeated AFAIK, despite being just a few minutes from the car park in one of the most popular bouldering areas in North America.

As a ex resident of Yorkshire I was always under the impression thay he was one of the strongest out there, just never sought the publicity. I have a memory that that project was one of the reasons he moved out there? Not sure Cold Fusion in NZ has had a repeat either. Think its undergraded at v11 or 12...

Matilda Söderlund did Pati Noso, 8c/+ in Siurana today. Can't say I am surprised. She dogged it with 2 hangs yesterday afternoon (having tried the route briefly last year) and tried it twice, but fell on the last move on the 2nd rp-attempt. Apparently it all went well today.

Thats awesome, having stood under that thing recently, it is very steep and long. I wonder out of interest how it compares to Mind Control, I would guess perhaps a bit harder

The downgrade floodgates on that opened after Reffo Silvio flashed it. Lots of people giving it 8c now.

Think its Vacunamatata at Siurana:

http://en.belclimb.be/rock/news/nicolas-favresse-sends-vacunamatata-in-siurana

Looks thin and hard, 10m of hard climbing after an 8c+ sounds a bit harsh for a slash grade!

Pasquil on a blank wall with no holds, good to see he's widening his variety from Raven Tor then. :lol:
