Just thought it's worth saying that Andy Pollitt talks at some length about the FA of KOHD in one of his interviews on the RockArchivist web site and gripping stuff it sounds as well.

His FA claim is also in the Stoney 1987 new route book if you're interested. Born Slippy and Ben Tetler's solo are in other books also on the site.

Dunno if this can be embedded in a post, but I just opened it up to UKB for your perusal and hopefully enjoyment:

You need to paste the link to the exact page at which it is hosted on Vimeo without the 'player' or 'video' part of the URL.  Just pasting in the following is how the above is embedded..

Code: [Select]

Southern Belle by Stanhope and Honnold http://rockandice.com/news/1227-honnold-and-stanhope-send-half-domes-spooky-southern-belle  sounds absolutely terrifying  some more info on the route here http://www.supertopo.com/tr/Hey-Coz-Sure-would-like-to-hear-the-story-of-Southern-Belle/t271n.html

The supertopo thread is really worth reading - great contributions from Scott Cosgrove (coz), first free ascentionist, and Hank Caylor who broke both ankles falling off it.

Alex Honnold: "It's just like Snake Dike but more extreme."

Just saw on the Scarpa site that Martin Smith has done Brownian Motion without the arete toe hook, this bloc is amazing looking, and not a long walk from the car, all you beasts should get to it!  http://www.scarpa.co.uk/team/blogs.asp?TeamID=7

Wow! Good effort Martin. This was an amazing project. The crimp with his right hand is pathetic!
Grade?

So not really off topic - Wild Country have just repeated Scarpa's most recent problem..........

Nice one Bingley Beast! Looks brutal even with the toe-hook.

No mention of a Skin and Wishbones flash? News being held back for the mags p'raps? Only heard this second hand but if true, it must be one of the hardest flashes ont grit, no?

Who, when? Impressive indeed. Presumably not being confused with Ryan's recent flash of Paralogism?

Ryan flashed Paralogism with gear in Skin & Wishbones (possible source of confusion), Chinese whispers strikes!

Awesome. Doesn't seem to be much room for Antithesis to his right - that groove is Bed of Nails, right?
