Jim Pope recently did Dave Pegg's MaDMAn at Wimberry. An old, old route, but I've never heard of another ascent. Does anyone know any different?

I went on it once and though I did all the moves quite quickly and it was within my grade (in theory) the thought of soloing it was absolutely terrifying. I knew immediately I never wanted to do it.

That's great to hear. Hope that got filmed.

Think it might be shoe cam only, and from what I understand he's kinda keen to maintain some of the mystique so wasn't going to publish too many details.

Pembroke weapon Edmund Morris has climbed Muy Caliente!, Tim Emmet's spicy E9 addition in Stennis Ford.

Thirteenth ascent I think?

Nice little vid, got the "climbing footage" vs "trendy editing" balance spot on.

Nathan Philips made the second ascent of Trance 8C at Badger Cove yesterday. It's a sit start to Bewilderness 8B+ that adds an ~8A in to the hard part of bewilderness.
