Some uber talented wad ticking easy routes on the grit. Hardly newsworthey and not all that impressive. Now Paul Reeve climbing 8c that is seriously impressive and I suspect something a lot would have laughed at thought of for even suggesting in years past. A fantastic effort from the 2nd most motivated climber in the UK (next to Keith S), certainly more impressive than Ste Mac climbing another 9a.

Congratulatipns Paul :great:

You're not kidding. Amazing stuff!

Not significant in the grand scheme of bouldering, but Southern Sandstones hardest problem problem Don't Pierdol down at High Rocks has been repeated by a fella called Maciek Badower from Poland. He has also taken it at 8a+ so is the areas hardest.

There is a video of the ascent on youtube if anyone is wants a buchers. And shock horror he only went and used chalk- the bastard!

*edit* Stuck the vid on non quality.

Last time I worked at The Castle it was chock-full of Polish mutants. Surprised they haven't made the Southern sczcsandstone their own sooner.

Anyone know if Braille Trail has been climbed ground up before? If not, it has now.

Ok, Dave Graham just told me he's guessing it's man of the moment Neil 'Nigel/Golden Feet' Kershaw.

Steady on, just don't want to make out something brilliant has happened when it hasn't...

UKC says it has, what do you reckon?



You can talk Cofe - 'Hey Check me out Daila! I'm standing in for Chris!'

Dani, Nico and Toni all say 'Hi' by the way. They're all keen to come back, and are appalled by Team Mammut's failings.

Is that a mini-Cofe in the bottom left or have you got really hairy fists?

Well spotted. I see they did Equilibrium too, plus every other route on the crag. A good day!
