I see this as community sourced reportage, rather than a definitive "we are the news" stance.  Of the two I prefer the former, and don't mind information coming through in such drips-&-drabs (had I been uber curious in the first instance of reading the tweet I would have searched for further details of the route, had that not have been successful I'd have asked questions as to the significance).

I agree with Mr Logic. I think.

Great ascent and blog by Dan. Shame the Outcrop team weren't there. I'd love to see footage

Yeah Dan rocks quite a bit, I respect his general waddness but also his dedication to the County's cutting edge climbs.

Ned did all those Solomon things.

Lee Anderson went climbing. And did Boston Mess. Possibly his going climbing being the more significant bit

Has it been picked up that Stewart Watson did the The Ace between Christmas and NY?

Good effort - still can't have had that many ascents with folk capable living a lot closer...
