Something about some bloke from Pickering doing something somewhere in Yorkshire which was last done by some strong Scot about a decade ago?

I dunno, he might not be happy if I Drew attention to it because he wants to publicise it himself. Haigh, he might even Cry or something. Freedom of speech and all though.

That what i thought you meant. He was pretty close the other day. Not sure about last being done about a decade ago though.

Yeah, he's pretty stoked I think, it's a brilliant effort indeed! 8b+ in the guide but most reckon 8c I think. Stallioni told me it was last done 10 years ago, and has only been repeated by malc, leach, tribault, sellars, moon, and one or two others!

Cheers guys.
Felt okay in the end, just needed to sort out my duff top sequence.
1 day top rope practice. 6th redpoint try.
Longest time spent on an 8b+ so far, not sure about the grade.
Feeling happy not to have to do it again.
YFYY.
Drew

Steve hasn't done it. AFAIK he's been on it once or twice and is among those you reckon 8c.

From speaking to him, Ste reckons its harder than 8b+ for him but only because of one move that he's too short to do the way everyone else does it, but is steady if you can reach off the footholds. Good effort Drew.

Nice one Drew!
Don't really know what it is but that is an impressive list of names you've joined there. Bloody ignorant boulderers! Must be hard. Your bro was very please for you last night.

Really good effort Drew. Top stuff.

I want to say something about one of those ascents but having written and deleted about ten different ways of saying it, I'll leave it.

Lest this is misinterpreted, I mean that the move Ste was on about was steady if taller, not the whole route, which is clearly a hard 8b+ (or 8c anywhere else on the planet). Has it really had so few ascents? An illustrious list to join indeed. And on that subject wasn't/isn't Nick good? As he's not a full bore sport climber anymore, you forget just how many hard routes he crushed all those years ago.

 :agree:

One of the best climbers I have ever seen without a shadow.

Is it common knowledge that Nick very nearly flashed La Rose in about '92? He didn't make a fuss about it of course but it would have been the hardest flash in the world at the time. He just cocked the wave move up going for the wrong hold IIRC and then pissed it next go.

I saw him destroy Cry Freedom in minutes. I had the fantastic vantage point of the New Dawn belay. Nick literally ran up it, he made it look like a proper path  :jaw:

I was going to suggest a Mel Gibson style "Freedom" scream upon completion, but I think Drew had used up all his volume on previous attempts, by trying to combine the ascent with the Guinness record for loudest ever expletive. Indeed,after watching him peel off the top, the passing tourist could have been forgiven for thinking the route was called "Cry Fuck!!"

He is the only person i have ever seen at Malham say sorry to people in beck for swearing when falling off. True gent!
