High Fidelity got a repeaty today at Caley - not sure who the climber was, but there were some very vocal celebrations...

Mark Katz I think.

It was indeed Mr Katz.
It's not that reachy but he did have to lay one on for the pocket, which is intimidating as hell for everyone involved his feet were about 5-6m up at that point. One fail on that move saw him nearly miss the mats altogether  :o but he  manned right up and finished the job after a quick brush of the holds  8)
Was awesome to see him get it ticked!

Seen as though no one else has mentioned it yet.
Paul Robinson repeated the ace today. Also did Brad Pit and Deliverance.

Is he coming to Wales, or is he another one that thinks Stanage is the UK (I take it we are talking about the same Paul Robinson)?

Why would he go to Wales? I thought everything had melted now?

According to his blog, Paul went to the peak just for a day. He went to the Castle in London too. Shame he didn't go to the lakes to try something very hard.

The Ace in 40 mins as well as Giza, Deliverance and Brad Pitt.
Not a bad day trip at all...

Imagine if him, Woods and DG had an extended trip like the other Team America did, would be interesting.

The way it was reported elswhere suggested he was over to see his families g/f's whatever in London and had allowed for the train journey and a 6 hour window to get things done.

Its seriously impressive.

Up until now everytime I read about a F8c there's a nagging doubt at the back of my mind to whether it really can be that hard. Quick ascents of test pieces like the ace really put things into perspective.

DG did have quite an extended stay in Sheff a year or two back and didn't manage The Ace despite a fair amount of effort. To be fair I have heard mutterings that the LH sloper/crimp has eroded a bit and is now better than it used to be and DG would have been trying it before the change.

I saw Paul do The Ace yesterday, he made it look very easy. Friction was pucker at Stanage yesterday aswell.

Wasn't it very wet when he was here and he didn't actually get to do that much climbing?  It's probably also worth bearing in mind that he was in the middle of a lecture tour, rather than in the middle of a climbing trip!

Yes the weather was mostly log, but he did have a number of sessions on The Ace around the same time Ryan did it I think, so not totally log conditions throughout. I'm not dissing him or owt...

I'm with Bonjoy, Dave Graham's shit. He failed on Hubble too the punter!

Are Robinson's ascents actually classed as valid though? He looks as if he weighs less than Bennett and surely that's just cheating?

Would that logic not invalidate most of your ascents back in the day Mr Sharpe? We all know everyone was just starved rather than strong in the 90's   ;D ;D

DG is my hero, I'll fight you all!
