An aging has-been sport climber seems to have logged another 8c recently. 6th ascent? - After Mitchell, Malc Smith, Steve Mac, Gaz Parry and God apparently.  ;D

Congratulations Tom, but Adam - how can you get this confused with a repeat?

I said it was a first ascent as that was what Tom had on his scorecard on 8a. It then turned out that it wasn't. Whats with the Spanish inquisition.  :shrug:

The point is that you posted what you thought was a first ascent in the significant repeats thread, no Spanish inquisition, you know what they're like on ukb!- though it was news, you might have got carried away with the numbers and missed out poor Stus back patting opportunity first. Comprende?
Anyhow let's move on - NIKS WALL HAS BEEN REPEATED BY A NON-LOCAL! SHAME ON SHEFFIELD!
