I'm trying to build up the image of UKB's perfect climber

-Doesn't use social media at all
-Doesn't post clickbaity vids, or indeed any vids as that is showing off
-Doesnt throw pads down, instead gently lowers them in a respectful manner
-Doesn't use "get," "send" or "bagged"
-Climbs really hard, ideally across multiple disciplines, but is humble about it, a modest achiever.
-Does top grade stuff but it isn't about the grades man, it's about the experience

Through this profile, I have calculated that UKB's dream climber is...

Klem Loskot, surely!

Lost the plot with what's significant these days but looks like Kieran Forrest did The Ace and Careless Torque in the last couple of weeks...

Trade routes!

Funnily enough it's not that far from the truth these days, by my count The Ace has had at least 23 ascents https://climbing-history.org/climb/157/the-ace

That’s The Meltdown (I think) which, although the same grade, sounds harder than Magic Line according to Carlo Traversi

Yeah that's meltdown. Third accent I think, after Beth rodden's FA and Carlo traversi's second.

Amazing to think Beth did it 14 years so now!

Second, Beth and Carlos both have American accents. :)

Most impressive. Same number of tries as Sachi Amma. Maybe only Adam Ondra and Alex Megos did it in fewer tries?

Jacobo's ascent of Meltdown came pretty quick as well?

It is amazing.

To put it in context, 14 years ago in the same month as the FA of Meltdown, a practically unknown climber soloed Moonlight Buttress. A lot has happened since then and he is a bit better known now.

Chaehyun Seo onsighted both Hidrofóbia (8b) and Antagonista (8c) in Raco de Missa, on the same day. (The routes cross each other but I do not know if they have any meaningful climbing in common?).

Chaehyun Seo is the fourth woman to have onsighted a route given 8c at the time of them climbing it. However, both T1 full equipe and Le roi du pétrole have been downgraded. (But are they really easier than Fish Eye? Anyone here having done them all?)

Super cool that she OSd Hidrofobia the same day, great historical connection with Katie Brown (v impressive flash/onsight in 1999) and Josune Bereziartu (with an onsight in 2006).

Tim Blake's done Cypher. Reckon that's still significant.
