Music: not my taste but I'm not the audience.

To clarify, whilst I don't like the music, that's not the point. It the playing of music at the crag that I was objecting to, and would do whatever the genre.

Bunch of strong fuckers on a perma holiday shouting ‘c mon’ and ‘sick’ at each other. What’s not to hate. Cunts.

Except BigJimmy. He should continue to roam the earth along with a lone mute cameraman. Sexy bastard.

Good footage of a well-lit tree against a dark rock. I concur some grading spats would liven things up.

From PR in the comments on this vid:

Quote
I have now climbed 3 boulders from Giuliano on this trip that have had extremely inflated grades... Red, given 8A which i felt to be closer to 7B+ (flashed), Fuoco di Pagli originally given 8A+/B which I also flashed and felt closer to 7C+, and REM given 8C+ which I felt like was a very straightforward boulder with no trickery or weird beta at all and felt to be in the hard 8B+ range.  Watch the videos on the Mellow Channel for all of these climbs with their original grades. I think high grades get people popularity and views on Youtube/Instagram and this is really not a good thing for the sport of climbing.

Here we go, this should be good  :popcorn: :worms:

Looks like the perfect problem for crimp waif Robinson, no wonder he found it easy.

Exactly what I was about to say, I like the "crimp waif" term, very good.

Cameroni is a crimp waif too though.  Hardly Mr Creosote is he. Fair play to P-Rob for having a pair of bollocks. Hope BigJimmys ok stuck in middle.

I think Cameroni is just tall and good at climbing, not particularly strong (in relative terms obviously). He’s always shaking like you in his vids 😂

Sign of true pedigree shaking  ;) I usually try to emulate a freezing terrified dog trying to shit on a lamppost on fireworks night.

You were hardly John Dunne in your heyday, I bet the current beard counts as added weight training  :P

P.S. lol @Doylo, that's climbing elegance to aim for!

Wojciech Szymanowicz has repeated Rewind (E10, 7a) at Carn Vellan.

So far as I know this is the second ascent, and the first placing all the gear on lead.

I don’t know what he thinks of the trad grade, but Wojciech commented to me previously that on bolts he thought it would be hard 8a+.

Social distancing was maintained as he rope soloed it.  :o

Wow. Be really interested to see more details on this one come out.
