Apologies if this is teaching you to suck eggs.


Thanks Duncan. Not at all - I have absolutely no experience in taking them out so good to learn. I'm possibly back there this wknd so might get it out then, unless anyone has a strong preference not to?

If you know anybody in the rope access world who could loan you an eye bolt pull tester, this could potentially be a quick and easy job

Looks like Irish Si has done Divided Years. Not bad considering he lives half way round the world now.

He only had a few spare days to get it done too.

Great work Si. I believe it also got an FFA from Florence Pinet, but don't quote me on that (living in Cornwall has me outta the Ireland loop).

Amazing effort! That's definitely a dream route to do.

 Charles Albert has repeated Monkey Wedding 8C a few days ago. Saw him trying it with no pads, crazy seeing him crimp with his toes...

No, South African name for when it rains and is sunny at the same time (from the Zulu name apparently, which I didn't know)

Am I the only one who's noticed that Barbara Zangerl has flashed Point Blank? Also ascents of Do You Know Where your Children Are? and Chubacabra by others..

Sellers did it recently and reckoned it's overgraded and more like F7c/E7. So a good effort but not exactly significant?

That's what I was thinking. Notorious sandbagger says route is overgraded.

I'm pretty sure she did Chupacabra too, along with the others. FWIW I think Nic isn't far off with his thoughts on Point Blank. E7 is about right, though maybe 7c/+. It's a grade easier than other E8s thereabouts like Do you know where your children are? Mercia Wall and Chupacabra.

Still an incredible effort!

Feel free to perpetuate the myth Stu but back it up with SCIENCE. I actually think he's bang on most of the time, but the truth hurts!
