Buoux Dolomites 8c has had a decent summer:

Soloed The Brandler-Hasse in 1 hour 37 mins
Redpointed the crux pitches of Pan Aroma
Got into Cambridge

Not bad for an alpinist!

Nor one to be tactful

However, I am not a man that can cope with constant failing (dos any such man exist?), so I allowed myself the occasional ´success´ of attempting routes more suited to my style - steep and physically demanding – and at the same time, ticking off classics like Lourdes 8a, and unnamed 8c at La Murla, Spain (see pic), and falling from pretty much the last move (can you grab the chain on this one?) on Unjustified, 8B+, on my second try – i´ll hopefully get back soon to finish it off!

I know this was posted before but I think only lasted an hour before the site went down so probably worth a re-post. Jenny Woodward did Mandela at Kilnsey on Monday.  :great:

Not bad considering the logisitcs involved in having to dry holds each trip as well as a bolt blowing off one day last week!

Was in the Pass the day of the ascent by said mystery individual, after he did it he ran from the roadside to the top of Snowdon and back down again as a warmdown, what a hero!  Not using chalk in any of the holds was perhaps even more heroic...

Dave Mason repeated New Noise at Tan Y Grisiau yesterday.  I thought this significant as a number of strong folk have tried this problem, and not managed to get both feet off the ground. 

Also, it was a fair few years ago that I did this, so good effort for the repeat visit to get this done.  Dave did it the original way, but there was others around which lead to the discover of another undercut, which faces in a more desirable direction (not seen this before).  I think it got done with the new hold, and it makes it more like 8a.

You can always trust the youths to find an easier sequence - I'd rather the power ( ;)).

Good effort guys!

Up early c.j.d.

Well done Dave. :thumbsup:

Neil Mawson did the 5th ascent of Bat route at Malham (2nd since loss of holds).  :thumbsup:

He found an easier sequence than Steve. Ascent looked perfunctory.

There is an anonymous claim of Monks Life last friday on UKC logbooks.

Anyone know anything or is it bogus
