8B and 8C in a day, the latter first try after what sounds like some very brief practice.

Love how he describes the trip as "exploratory," just checking out a few things ...

Gets me really psyched to see the lads tearing it up at the moment. So cool.

Not sure if Aidan has flashed 8B+ before? Third Brit to do so I believe, after Will Bosi and Ned Feehally.

I'm surprised he's had no stick for climbing wet rock. After all, ambiguity is the enemy of accountability.

He's been close a few times (most notably on Foundation's Edge 8C) but this is his first flash of the grade as far as Im aware.

Love the totally unnecessary beta spray for the juggy moss slab at the end.

QuitE ... how do the Yanks concentrate with all that spray in the air?  OPeNiNg the moUth is a very judicious process.
HoW the ViewEd is W@tcheD is a very interesting thing ... I'll stop there ... concentration isn't quite what it coulD be ...

Looks like Nathan has found some sort of knee on ilse sit based on orin/his story on insta, not sure if the knee is for the stand or sit portion, but seems he's pretty psyched on ilse sitter atm!

It's a bit of a knee scum, slows down the movement a lot to get the right hand start hold of the stand totally statically with no grim cut after. But definitely not a chill knee bar!
