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 think I may be the originator of this story. When I tried it in March '09 I noticed that it seemed a crystal or two crumbled out of the right hand end of the LH crimp, making it more positive for your index finger. That is indeed after DG's visit in, I think Oct '08, but it didn't look fresh though so its possible any change pre-dated his trip. Or it may have been entirely my poor recall of its prior state and the divot may been there all along...

Either way its academic as we had exactly this discussion at the crag and P-Rob showed us how he didn't use it anyway - he preferred taking the hold further left where it's more uniform.

Is there some media etc. of P Rob's crushing?  I know a tree can't fall over in a wood in the Peak without someone taking some video of it!

I've got some pics of The Ace, but I'll probably whore them round the mags first. There was quite a lot of footage captured, but mostly on P-Rob's camera. So probably keep an eye on his blog.

I don't want to do myself down, but I suspect there are better pics for the guide.

I've seen them and they're far from definitive. Mainly because Lee's not spotting.

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

I think that depends on the wind speed and direction, as ratified by an Olympic official.

If Doylo disagree's i'd be inclined to go with what he thinks. He knows better than anyone what's needed to do the pill box problem. He has seen enough wads try.

Yes but he's probably top 3 In the world right now.Tyler didn't have much joy on pill box problem and he wasn't too shabby.

I think as bad as they are aesthetically, it would be good to see Il Pirata/shadowplay climbed!
