Oh and I forgot to say chapeau to Stevie, would love to see a vid of his ascent, but I guess it's unlikely he had a camera crew in tow.

The shot of him over on UKC looked like a screengrab to me, so who knows?

Unless you missed it on Dave Mac's blog, Dave Redpath has ticked Devastation Generation (8c) 14 years after bolting it.

Having finally run out of eliminates on Pinches Wall and traverses to link up Ru has been forced to try something different at the Tor and, today, sent Keen Roof. Good effort Mr Davies.

Matt Birch did High Fidelity yesterday. A pretty warm afternoon at Caley but the gentle breeze meant conditions were ok. Great effort!

He always does.

He was also really close to getting the FA of that new super hard Paul Robinson problem (SDS to Rastaman Vibration) at an earth-shattering Font8C+!! He had to leave his trip early due to problems with his flight and Paul came and got the FA. A true world class climber from Blighty

The Swede of all knowledge reports Dai has repeated The Story Of Two Worlds. Fairly significant I'd say.

13 year old Randy roby climbed raindogs other day. He should have done it while he was still 12. Youngest 8a ascent in uk?

Yes Adam, Randy is only just 13 did it 31 days after his birthday. Does anyone know the youngest ascent of an 8a by a Brit? Definitely is the youngest ascent of Raindogs, as the previous was Shauna Coxsey who did it when she was 15 i think. Kitty Wallace and Leah Crane climbed 8a abroad when they were 14 too I seem to remember.

My guess would be that he didn't find it a total path as he was down there a couple of weeks before that, so might have actually taken him a couple of sessions!  :o

Good work the man with scary biceps.

Coincidentally, Toru the Japanese beast was also down that way recently at the BMC meet. I think he was on pretty fine form, although nothing rediculous as far as I know. Some great photos on Alex Ekins's photo gallery if you want to check out some really inspiring pics of Cornish granite.

Was at Sennen on Friday with some pals as it was the only dry place in the South West, shared the place with assorted wads from the International Meet.  Some very impressive ascents going down left right and centre.  At the end of the day when things had calmed down and cooled down, Toru top roped a protectionless arete a couple of times.  He then pulled his rope and climbed the route smoothly and calmly.  I have no idea what the route is and it could've been a first ascent, it is certainly a very serious route.  No photos in Alex's gallery of this route but there was a photographer there snapping the ascent.  Perhaps, a news item and unveiling will follow or maybe it wasn't that significant.  However, the photographer was very keen to point out that we were about to witness something special (which is certainly was).  So can anyone spill the beans or have I just done so?

Ah ok - I think that was a repeat of an E6 6a. Details are on the BMC website I believe. Looking forward to seeing a mag article or two...

Actually, I think Dave Pickford said Toru did a new route (shoukld have listened better).
