Excellent! I thought Stefano's comment on Ondra's post the other day was good too

People in disagreeing on grades for short routes shocker. Stop the press.

I like how it doesn’t matter how strong you are -  there’s always some fucker who can piss on your chips/bonfire. Will should have downgraded La Capella, BenNJerry would have in the olden days.

I'd be curious to see Jakob Schubert try something like rainman which is by very different in style to the capellas. I reckon the short powerful routes just really play to his style rather than actually being particularly softly graded.

I think he has done his fair share of longer routes in Spain in quick order too? Not sure how Rainman compares to those in terms of style, besides having more sidepulls and bad feet obvs!

Perfecto Mundo and Planta de Shiva are not super short (just thinking of hard things he's done off the top of my head)

Was thinking he’s done some of Shamra’s, Neanderthal and Stoking? Too lazy to check…

Both. Pretty well rounded on route styles really:

Lucy Mitchell has climbed her second 8c with an ascent of  Le fight du beau gosse intégrale at Lourmarin in France. Sounds like she made pretty quick work of it with a one day ascent of the first part (8b) then 3 days to add on the extension.

I love watching her climb, no one switches between balletic grace and grunting and sketching up improbable sequences quite like her.

Is she really sponsored by Rock City in Hull? Their logo appears in the final credits and the film seems like it’s produced by a family member

Waddage!

Im surprised her's is the first female ascent, so many strong women out there these days and it's obviously an ultra classic. Gonna be good to see what else she gets up to in the forest.

I know she pisses it, but she's got a few grades in hand surely?

She does that so easily. Its great to see the new generation on old problems and routes as it gives you an idea of how far we have come.

Guess the nature of this problem suits new school climbers who can use there whole body's to climb stuff, she basically does it with her leg. Back in the days of the real thing i think people were still pretty much dragging them selves up it, the concept of compression hadn't really got going.

Amazing.

Bosi has added a low start to Dave Macleods problem Zero, calling it Below Zero. Dave gave his problem 8B and Will reckons the low start makes it 8B+.

Wearing those NIADs too, that must add a couple of grades!
