This forum is mad, loads of equally or more significant shit out there imo.Nobody blinked when Eliot did 'from dirt' a certified 8C boulder. Anyway bits that I reckon are more significant just off the top of my head and recent.Aidan did Shallow Groove at Trowbarrow a couple days ago, 2nd ascent after Ryan, probably 8B+ and in a session.Varian did Bombadil which I've heard would definitely not be out of place at 8C and blogged about it before anyone say's it didn't get mentioned.Ned put probably the hardest problem on grit up this week.8B+ boulder is miles more significant than a 8c+ route in my eyes.Oh a Micky P climbed 9a if routes are the only thing which flouts your boat.

Ned posted on insta, and said he'd had mutliple seasons on it.
Saw on insta that Alex Waterhouse has repeated Randallís 40 roof crack 8B at Hartland. Whilst obviously not impressive in the grand scheme of things grade wise itís an amazing feature and must be up there in grade terms for cracks. https://www.instagram.com/p/CAiZUiyDSUt/?igshid=12sor9k2a10xo

Can someone write a list of how to be a really cool climber?So far I can think of:1. Never give grades to your problems2. Never report anything promptly3. Only ever put stuff on Instagram and when you do don't say where it is, what it's called, or what grade it is. The gold standard in cool is to just put a little emoji which may or may not have anything to do with the problem.Any more?
All Varian's stuff gets added to ukc more or less straight away. Bombadil for example on there. I assume he does it himself. Ned's on peak bouldering usually.
Dirt... was on Eliots IG too: https://www.instagram.com/p/B83_vasDsPS/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_linkpretty sure it was reported here? It's a great video too. (think the thing he does to the left of dirt is the finish of some horrendous thing that jimmy webb does in a dosage vid?) Dan V only ever seems to put stuff on his flickr or scarpa or beastmaker blogs (just seen your UKC point Jack)Micky P is basically a ghostShallow groove was underreported to begin with - prob as Ryan P is off radar too. I didn't know about Aiden repeating it, any more details?It's unpredictable what gets a reaction, doesn't mean it's less worthy.But yeah - please post stuff up you hear about, Always interested!

Yeah I posted about Eliot's ascent in this thread, pretty significant I thought. First Welshman to climb 8C and well deserved i'd say. Nobody seemed to notice on here.
Perhaps cause of the reception half the hard shit gets online, i.e not much.
This is a fascinating discussion. Can someone please post links / pictures / details / quoted write-ups of all the other news listed above (apart from Elliot's that had a video posted and Ned's with one instalink). I'm not on insta / flickr / grindr / ukcr so it's really useful to have stuff posted in this thread.
