i'm not on about the LH version. whenever it was I did neil's sitter (according to 8a.nu this was 18th june - see, they are useful) i watched him do it getting the rec viol crimp with lh and making a very long span to the poor hold just shy of the groove on the right, then making a nails looking windmill slap to holds above. its almost like a RH variant, looked about the same grade. i like to think it was the psyche of seeing me crush NW sitter like it was a warmup gave him the psyche to get through it.
Also, it looks as though Dave Cowl has made the first repeat of The Real Keel Haul. 8b'ish.
What safe, hard E8's are out there, waiting for climbers like Dave?
Make a list.

Is captain invincible still classed as hard and safe? Can't remember if they were hand placed pegs. (not that I've ever been on the route, just what could have been said)
