Mina's done Franks Wild Years at Cresciano. Dunno if it still gets 8a+ or just 8a, but its BURLY. Nice one, pet!

Just spotted DTR (monkeyboy) did Vecchia Leone: http://www.moonclimbing.com/Vecchia-Leone-by-David-Mason-n-941.html

Apologies if I'm being dense (!) and it's been posted elsewhere. Good effort Dave!

not really a mantle tho is it? in fact not even really a semi mantle, more like an 8a+ rock over on to a large shelf.
hardest mantles i can think of offhand, victorian overmantle 7c/+? and fight club in bishop v11.

mantle or rockover still uberwaddage looks great

Brilliant efforts from both Mina and DTR. The works must be good for something!

Franks is thought 8a IIRC, but proper beef.

TG if you want to post a photo you'll have to upload it to Flickr or photobucket, etc. first, or maybe link it from your mobileMe gallery if you're a Mac user.

I can't call myself an expert in grading boulder problems since I am mostly sport climber, but it felt simply harder than any 8B+ I had done.
Even though he's done as much hard bouldering as anyone else!

you may be interested in knowing (but you may not...) that "from dirt..." is a quote from a famous italian song by Fabrizio De André, whose last line says "dai diamanti non nasce niente, dal letame nascono i fiori": "from diamonds nothing grows, from dirt grow flowers".
true poetry in my opinion.

the top outs in font always feel hard if you try and mantle them

Im not sure if this is getting me psyched, or making me become even more bitter and twisted.  The only thing I've repeated this week is my drive to London (twice) and my drive to Birmingham (twice).

Wish the snow would bugger off, then we could get some new stuff done, to make for even more psyched significant repeating!!  Lucky buggers - well done.

Or from the Buck 65 song "phil"
From storm clouds come angels
let pain give you pleasure
from dirt grows the flower
when faith can't be measured.
