Mightily impressive but it still awaits a repeat wearing lime green shorts. Doylo, you know your true destiny........

That meant TRing it in September when it was still warm and getting abuse on this forum from know-alls about "some tw*t trying Parthian Shot when it was clearly too warm etc".

thats hilarious. you must have a pretty low "abuse" tollerance threshold though tom you fucking lanky cunt.

OK, maybe overstating it just a little there...  ;D but tis true that grit routes aint always best approached in the depths of winter. one man's far too hot is another's pucka cons.

From Paxti Usobiaga's website:

We went to bed around 2 pm while still feeling a little bit dizzy. On Sunday, seeing how great the weather was, we decided to go rock climbing to Nassereith. There I met Adam, who was also there desintoxicating from the plastic. He had just sent Hades (9a), the route I wanted to try so I asked him for beta. He gave me a very precise description of all the moves and after trying the route once and putting the quickdraws I had a very good go and sent it. It was very nice to have there someone to tell me the moves because it is usually very time and energy consuming to figure out how to do some sequences in these hard routes (thanks Adam).

9a. 2 goes.  :jaw:

Climbing's hard when 8c+ is approaching a rest?

Personally I don't think those lads are even trying, come on boys pull your finger out and get on something hard.

people, there's one 'o' in lose, as in "I am about to lose my temper with you, you naughtly little boy"

there's two 'o's in loose, as in "My rear fanny feels loose since you rammed that dictionary up it"

Not on 8c's no. Once a monster always a monster.

Did that fairly little one repeat Mecca extension today?
Congratulations if so.
He might be ageing but sport climbing obviously comes au naturelle.

If 8a is to be believed (and we are talking about the same person) then it would seem he did. Go beast.

Good Effort Stu!!!

Last saw it a few weeks ago near you and Jules under Body machine ( the time when I snapped a hold off).
