Gigantic at Wilton ground up'd today following a clean on abseil, by the illustrious Mr Lincoln. Best style of this route to date i believe.

Effort. Without trying to be a total tw4t, it's a pretty impressive feat to say the least, but how can you ground up a route you have already abseiled down?

Well, it is hard to classify the style. The route needed cleaning. I abseiled it. I didn't try any of the moves.
I get your point though.  :)

In retrospect, i'm pretty sure ground up involves climbing the route from bottom to top without top rope practice, or abseil inspection?? A very good effort non the less. E8 6c?

Well done Adam, without getting someone else to clean it for you this is probably the best style in which to attempt the route.

Like I said,not knocking the ascent -  E8 in ANY style is a fantastic achievement, just curious about terminology .

Nice one Adam - spoke to Pete this eve about your beastliness. Good work! Also psyched to hear some stuff is being cleaned up. I'll be coming up that way very soon as there's a load of things I want to do up there. May see you out sometime...

Cheers. Did he mention my sketching on the E4 bit ;-)
Just say the word, i'll give you a tour. Pete basically did it ground up to, but split a tip after the crux, and fell off.

Ned's ticklist from Font is worth a mention especially when you consider that it was soaked. Plus 3 8As in a day at Queens........
