Ah right. And that gear looked so bomber in Posing Prod's clip too....

I was thinking it was to avoid getting snagged in the right hand rope.

and he would walk 500 miles, and he would walk 500 more, just to be the man who gets the second ascent of your 9a.

As Jez Portman once said "They don't impress me much".

Thats crazy! Good to have something the current generation of proto-UKBers to aim for.

For anyone that doesn't know the problem, it is a very very impressive tick!  :o

Tiny hands + no bodyweight + no fear + natural aptitude for monkeying around + lighter internal organs etc etc. The only thing that surprises me about these kids ticking big numbers is that anyone is remotely surprised by it.

Looks like a cool problem.

The voice of truth or another jaded pundit who needs to recalibrate his awemeter? 

The latter methinks.

Methinks too. It's a justification that has been used through the ages when someone of young years does something significant.

I was well impressed, it's not like it's some crimp ladder on small close together holds that would suit someone small, there appears to be a couple of really big moves on it, and a jump to a fingerjam!

Fiend has a valid point (within reason), morphology plays a big part in how a problem feels, any problem is a completely different undertaking for someone that size, this is backed up by the fact it makes pulling on impossible  ;)

I hear what Stubbs is saying but she's inside that groove.

Please don't take that to mean I'm not in awe of the things I witness by youths or that video as I am. Its a damn good effort.

so nobodys thinks its significantly massively easier if you have tiny hands that can fit into the holds? also that you can use holds that no one else uses?
Its a very good effort but I'm sure it isn't V10 for her.
Who cares anyway?
Whats next, worlds tallest man onsights work hard at curbar by pulling on at the top?
david copperfield flashes mandala by floating up it?

She's a better climber than the guy in the clip. Get over it.
