Stefano Ghisolfi has done Change 9b+ https://www.instagram.com/p/CFsDEqBn8h0/?igshid=rjv6r75ircgo

Great stuff, have been following his efforts on Instagram.  Gave the impression he had quite a bit more work to do but sounds like it all came together quickly at the end.

Already reported by Remus on climbers who have done 8c etc but thought it was worth highlighting:

Matt Wright has repeated Hubble

Scrawny veteran climber / stoner / philosopher follows in the footsteps of even scrawnier teenage girl and also does alarmingly popular sub-Raven Tor style choss link-up bollox:

Classic

Ali Hulk Sit Start Extension Total [9B] ☑️ 🥳 Last Tuesday I finally managed to climb the full line of the Ali Hulk Cave, a futuristic vision from one of my biggest inspirations in climbing, @dani_andrada_climb 🔥 During the extreme heat of the deep summer I spent most of my sessions crafting methods; most of which I changed multiple times afterwards, seemingly climbing in circles for months until I actually came up with a 130 move sequence which I felt confident with. The first half of the roof is very bouldery, where as the second half is more endurance oriented. The day it went down I had zero expectations to climb it 🤣 It was one of the last hot days we had, particularly humid, and not a lot of wind, I was tired from trying No Pain the day before, and had some nagging splits that needed tape, so I sat myself down at the start whimsically for a good old training burn, planning to fall at the first crux. Somehow, I managed to cross the roof, but was savagely pumped and nearly fell off getting into the rest position 🤨 From there I declared I would fall immediately 😂 I couldn’t shake the pump so I decided to just keep it movin, engaging myself in a brutal battle to get through the more physical Hulk section, and landing myself at the next rest with a near terminal pump in my entire body. I bailed again on the rest as my legs began to fail me in the kneebars, wanted to fall (honestly) as the pain in my feet was goin over the “threshold”, prayed I would maybe slip off in order to relieve the burn, yet somehow kept doing “one more move” (the mantra) until I made it through the Extension portion. This is where I got nervous. It was time not to punt 😅 I hung in the last shitty rest rapidly shaking either arm preparing for the past section of real resistance, and launched 🤪 Move by move I executed my beta, completely focused, only until the last move of the route. I rocked over my foot, locked of, assuming I would pitch, reached for the last jug, and BOOM. Summit 🤩 I couldn’t believe what happened, still can’t 🤩 One of my most memorable and rewarding ascents in my life 🙌🏻 Uncut coming

Yup. I'm glad he's still crushing it, he's always had an entertaining and inspiring vibe and his talk at the Works decades ago was ace.

Classic talk, one of his main talking points was that everyone should own a kneepad and learn to use it!

Yes, definitely worth highlighting. He's a real dark horse.
Great effort  :2thumbsup:  :beer2:

Will check out Remus' link, thanks.

Is he? As I understand it a dark horse is someone who keeps what they have done under wraps.

Not taking anything away from Mat or criticising him, but he is fairly ‘on’ Social media?

He’s no Tony Stone!
