The route Toru soloed at Sennen was "Hell hath no fear" E7 6c its the rounded arete below and to the right, of the Gillian and Golva wall.

Yep! That's sounds like the one  :great:  It was my first visit to Sennen and I don't generally trad climb so much, so not very familiar with route names etc.. but can safely say it is a brilliant venue at any grade.  Wonderful to see someone repeat such a serious route and to reassuring to hear Toru's verdict..... 'F**king scarey!'

Even if you don't trad climb much you should be puntered for that! Top spot. Nice swell magnet (but often crowded because of it)next door.

I meant the crag Sennen, have of course surfed there and at t'other end where there is also some nice bouldering.  If there are no waves here you can pretty much guarantee the rest of the south west is gonna be fffffffffffllllllaaaaatttt.

More details on the other channel of Dave Birketts repeat of WoL.

http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/item.php?id=53538

Dave was very complimentary...

"When everything settles down as regards the grade and the hype that surrounds it, it will be heralded as a modern extreme classic of the 21st Century"

He agreed with Dave Mac on the grade if anyone cares.  :shrug:

3 vaguely dismissive posts of UKC's farce story is about all it deserves.

On the plus side, good interview with Dave Birkett, I particularly like that he was sitting on a bed of moss at the time - now that's a nice touch.

I'm genuinely offended by that, if it was down to me and it wasn't, the hoax would have been a bit more credible.  The fact that they ran the article at all marks a low point for what is fast becoming the climbing equivilant of the Daily Star.

The only hope I have for cockfax is that they get stung in a fingerprint IP action.

I dont know if the post is still on the cocktalk thread, but it was surprising...  :shrug:

Lady Diana does FA of new Font 8c+, I've just heard it from the alien that tried to abduct me.

Apparently Si O'Connor nipped in for a quick repeat and confirmed the grade.

Caley Crag
Confessions of a Specimen Hunter 7a (V6)   
A left-to-right traverse of the right hand edge of the boulder. Sit-start on slopers, gain the pocket on the face, and continue along the face to a large hole and the end.

And this is significant why? is he 3ft6? has crab claws for hands perhaps?

Whilst I dont deny the personal significance of such an ascent, I dont think its of national significance, so shouldnt be here. By all means disagree.

What you saying, Andy Harris pisses 7a, hardly newsworthy.

There's even more nonsense than usual round these parts recently.

maybe we should start a thread called "insignificant repeats". Unless we've already got that covered by YYFY.

leaving aside the infantile namecalling for a second, how did you read this thread and come to the conclusion that a report of your mate doing a 7a was appropriate? It should have been fairly clear that you'd get this type of response.

There are quite a few regular posters here who do push the grade a lot further than V6/7a.

But you've only made a few posts and whilst you may have been lurking for some time, you've not sussed out what the various threads are aimed towards.  Give it time and all will become clear, you don't need to get on the defensive just because you made a mistake.  :spank:
