Indeed! My clearest memory of the day is that just as I finished squeaking my boots Neil Foster and Glenn Sutcliffe walked round from under Prophet. It must have been immediately obvious what I was about to try. I distinctly remember saying 'You two can fuck right off!' and they duly obliged - I definitely didn't want an audience.

Always happy to oblige!

That's a long time ago, Andy. It must have been the day I led Forbidden Planet (which I'd watched John do the first ascent of back in 1984), and then Glenn walked up Right Eliminate - which was dripping wet - after first declaring "offwidths hold no fear for me".

I remember thinking it was a good example of putting your money where your mouth is!

That you and Andi are the new Colin FFord and Gary Cooper. ;D

Grimer, you bastard, that is some mantle to have to carry.

I guess that many of you will now know that Pete Whittaker and Tom Randall soloed Ray's Roof last weekend (Pete did it twice)
Here is a link to Pete and Tom writing about their ascent - http://alexekins.co.uk/2010/11/pete-whittaker-and-tom-randall-talk-about-soloing-rays-roof

Don't think this has been mentioned:

have been lucky really as one of the boulders I was trying stays dry in the rain so I could continue to work this. It is called Alphane Moon (8A) and is a really fun climb. Kind of like board climbing on small but positive crimps. It was in varying condition as the low cloud often meant that the holds would be a bit damp but often it was in fairly good nick. It finally succumbed a couple of days ago

Hazel Findlay has done the Bachar-Yerian, alternating leads with Will Stanhope.  Female ascentionists of the B-Y must be a pretty select club.

Not Hazel:

From the Dirt Grows the Flowers 8C. This problem is in Chironico. It starts with an 8B crimping sequence through some slippery crystals and leads to a hard 8A+ mantle.

from http://www.b3bouldering.com/2008/03/10/switzerland-2/

8A+ mantle?!
