Watched Justin someone-or-other (from Lincolnshire, ginger hair & beard. Second name might have something to do with Plum?) do Demon Wall Roof Footless today. Hand in the juggy thing in the roof. Left hand to the lip. Right hand to the crimp. Matched and went. Made it look piss. Was supposed to be unrepeated.
 :bow:


BTW DWR with feet is unjustifiable but I can do Pebble Wall again which I haven't done for a while.

That will be Justin 'The Lion/Homeless looking hobo' Plumtree...effort!

Mina is at it again, Habe Die Ehre, 8a. Is it insulting to call her a beast?!

Has this been mentioned yet?

Although I can't work out if it is a repeat or a new line. Alan Cassidy has also just  done (another?) 8c.

you're right. also sounds like there were some seriously fucked-up rocher-canon style linkups going down on that face. is this boulder now the stanage uberwad's answer to pinches wall?

He did indeed, after a fall from the very top, indeed a fall that was taken by a few folk on a few occasions.

Adam Long got two steps closer to being the last man to do CT ground up today!!  ;).....as Caff and Bransby both dispatched it with style!

Massively impressive to watch two beasts of smaller phyiscal stature cruise it with ease with a tenuous looking top sequence!! Good work guys!  :bow:

Very cold, especially once the sun went behind the clouds late on.... Not a great deal of snow, a 'dusting' at best really, and the temperature is preventing it from melting and soaking everything at the minute.... :)

It's about time he realised his potential, the underachieving cunt.

Vincent Pochon has repeated The Island in Font. Although Dave Graham graded it 8C, Pochon added a couple of moves to the start.

More on the other channel.

 :o 8B into 8C? Am I the only one scratching my metaphorical beard? or is Pochon a well-deserving beast?

Bleau.info thinks so

opened on :07.04.2008 David Graham

repetitions : 3 public registrations
03.01.2010 - Vincent Pochon (FRA)
08.12.2008 - Sam Edwards (AUS)
29.10.2008 - Nalle Hukkataival (FIN)

Anyone know if Mr Landman had a pop on this when he was in between the trees?? Could we chip in a few quid and send him back to polish of the sitter
