He only had sporadic trips up for it from the midlands too! 3rd Irish font 8b climber?

Almost certainly the 3rd. Good effort Jonny!

Only one has done so on Irish soil though. Would be nice to see Wonderland get some well deserved attention from someone capable.

Possibly 4th. Hasn't Rob Hunter climbed 8b in Font? Then Michael, Nigel, and the good Mr. Argue

I thought Jonny was from the North? Didn't know about Mr Moore. Including the nordies it would appear to come to 5 then.

Jonny is from the North. More 8b climbers in Ireland than Wales!

I think there are a few more who are well on their way as well. You never know maybe someone will even repeat some of Duffy's problems.

Forgot about Nige, and I was including Si. I don't think Rob has, though he is everyone's favourite dark horse. Still only one in Ireland mind. As for the north south thing, lets just pretend it's like the rugby; all the current pissing about over a flag in Belfast is mildly depressing.

Just been informed that Jernej Kruder has done the fourth ascent of A Story of Two Worlds.

Fine effort.

I thought that problem was banned. EDIT - Looks like my shit memory as I can only find reference to it being broken. Good that it is still climable cos it looks absolutely amazing.

It's private property, which they asked permission to climb on.

Pretty cool move by P-Rob to get El Mocho to name his new routes.

Looks more like someone that doesn't have experience of a camera on the end of a stick.

Time to sack off training and go for some 'regained perspective' instead

He also did the 2nd ascent of a Full Package, an amazing looking Sharma problem that he climbed in Dosage 3. I've always wondered what grade it was-hard 8b apparently.  he said Witness was likely 8b before all the holds snapped which is slightly surprising. As one of Sharma's hardest it's been called 8c by all the yanks for years.
