Lovely video, man psyched to climb a hard rock in the hills on his own with just his video camera for company. Feels more real to me than seeing the group sessions with loads of pads and shouting that seems to happen on lots of hard boulders.

Officially news now as one of them has had a grade attached to it by Aiden.

UK has its first 9A. I guess that makes the other one as hard so another 9A.

i presume it will now pop up on all the climbing news channels now as there algorithms will spot it.

Bosi will probably give it 8C though.

9?

Wouldn’t be surprised if there are some upgrades and downgrades though. Especially terranova coming up. Clearly totally nails.

Hopefully Aidan will manage to safely sail to the states to check out the two there; I think Lorenzi also said he had US plans

Sounded like in the Sean Bailey interview on Carless Talk that he's done something new and really hard in the USA. I wondered if it was the first boulder in this video https://youtu.be/Ayji9tDdMx8?si=prEJESng0jJxtyNy based on other rumours. So could be 10 now if that's the case

In the same pod he was bemoaning the lack of coverage 8C+ got now we are into 9A’s, so I had assumed he had gone for that grade. Will all come out in the wash I guess!

I think you're right, he seemed pretty coy when Trieste Low was mentioned. Will be interesting to see if Shawn Rabotou has anything up his sleeve too, he's been pretty quiet since doing Alphane and Megatron (except nipping in for a quick second ascent of Devilution).

ed: I think there's also a proj left of Trieste in the 9A range so could also be that.
