Looking at this:



It looks like Ben might be using a different sequence to the old 'pop to the shit pocket' move?

Looks plausible - at 1'32" in the following go up with left hand rather than popping the right?

It feels like the entire grit season has happened in a couple of weeks. Is there anything left to be done?

Legendary stuff, quite the year for grit, standards keep progressing

I don't think it's just grit - the standard of 'the chasing pack' has gone up in sport I think too. I tried to count 8c or harder ascents by Brits this year (whilst in lab so without the help of the internet) and got to 31 ascents by 18 people. Which seemed like a decent chunk.

The season hasn't started until Barrows has placed his big banana feet on some gritstone smears at least once. And failed.

Nice one Katy - top stuff from a girl that holds down a proper job as well.

In that case the grit season was officially opened 10 days ago... Smears? Check. Abject failure on techy problems? Check. Kranko's Klown Feet? Double check. Desire to run away to Parisella's and climb on kneebars? Oh hell yeah.

P.S. I'd like to point out that whilst Katy spent the first part of the day climbing a really shit sequence on Elder Crack, she then went to the Foundry to train for limestone. Take that grit weaklings.

That's the route Jon Cardwell repeatedly fails on in the Island I think. "One-nil to the old farts";)

I've noticed recently that Guys posts rarely have more than 6 words - and even rarer more than ten. I wonder if Guy has been replaced by a ukb hybrid of birdbot (tm) - dubbed GuyBot? ;)

Yeah, it's the one Cardwell fails on in The Island. Woods too. Ondra thought it might even be 9a/+, supposed to be the hardest of the 9as in Loup!
