... Very reminiscent of Ruth Jenkinson...

Jenkinson or Jenkins?

Another 9a for Tom Bolger. Open your mind - 9a.
Sounds like the 9a+ version is on as well.

Sounds like Tom has been on fire recently, metaphorically speaking of course!!

Also saw that Mary Jenner has repeated Bleed in Hell E8 6c which puts her in a very exclusive club of female E8'ers, certainly in the UK.

Oh and Jonny Stocking (16 or 17?) is out there also. He climbed Rolito Sharma @ 8b+.

Power of Goodbye is very nails for a Hueco V10

I daresay it is as it is a 8b in Austria.  Get it right Doylo. :spank:

Who's in Chorro at the moment? Word in The Cave (Poema) is that a Brit repeated Orujo recently.

Maja Vidmar has onsighted Humildes pa casa in Oliana and has apparently said it to be 8b+!! Impressive given that its graded 8c.

Very impressive indeed, but it is widely considered as 8b+ to the Spanish and has been for a while since the old harder start was debolted.  Either way this is an amazing send.

Just got a text from Nige K: “Onsighted Master’s Edge yesterday evening, finished up Great Arete. Alright! Well psyched”
Top effort monster! Deserves a shout on this thread I reckon. Especially as it comes on top of a run of good form with at least thirteen grit E6s or harder groundup I can think of, mostly OS or flash including a flash of Marrowbone Jelly, One Chromosome’s Missing and Cornelius in about four goes.

ledge end.

Does E7 to a ledge into an E5 add up to a berry-style E8?

'Twas impressive - no hesitation whatsoever. Due to top-ropers confusing tickmarks he also ended up not finding 'the crimp' and did 'the move' off some shit intermediate.

Cheers guys, I am chuffed to bits.

what a legend! good effort nige. is this the route's first proper one-go, pull on and climb it onsight? (can of worms.....sorry....)

I wondered about that too, but I think Alex Honnold did the same last year, he is certainly reported to have done so. For me the most impressive effort on this route is Caff reversing it all, especially given he's short. Legend.

To the headpointers: please can you brush off your tickmarks afterwards, they look a mess. Especially the ones on the wrong holds!
