Ned did all those Solomon things.

Lee Anderson went climbing. And did Boston Mess. Possibly his going climbing being the more significant bit

Has it been picked up that Stewart Watson did the The Ace between Christmas and NY?

Good effort - still can't have had that many ascents with folk capable living a lot closer...

good effort leesa. As Ed said "its not his style" but does hanging off monos and tilting ones body constitute a style.
anyway 8a.nu tells me that Mina has done big golden. Amazing effort! is this the first ascent of any of the big 4 by a british female?

Very cool. Looks good for a cavey ss style problem and not just straight pulling, looks easy to muff!

He's changed. His feet are like totally on the rock and everything.

And there's not a chorizo in sight.

When Nacho first came to The Works I climbed with him a fair bit on the 30 degree board. He was only a little bit stronger than me. Now he flashes 8B and crushes 8Cs and I'm permanatly injured and can only envisage climbing about 6B.

 :boohoo: :boohoo: :boohoo:

Seriously, that's very impressive.  :2thumbsup:

I witnessed this.

I don't know Stewart and in the current climate of this thread I couldn't be bothered to think about whether it might be significant or risk recieving a boring email about ruining the spirit of climbing.

Anyway he's a sponsored euro hero so done the decent thing and reported it himself. Nice one.

Dear Sir/Madam
I fear that it is an attitude like this that is ruining the adventure aspect of climbing. Any form of training or self publicity is a sincere threat to the facets of climbing that have elevated it above a mere sport. Indeed is this even news? It is merely a few foot above the floor, as has been said before "these gritstone climbs are not a very important part of climbing". This is clearly not or never will be the Indian face. I dare say that it would have Don Whillans turning in his grave.

17 year old Barnaby Ventham repeated Don't Pierdol 8A+ at High Rocks yesterday. Done in less than 10 attempts and on his first go of the second session working the problem!
Bad quality video of the ascent here:

mcpage did high fidelity yesterday, when he should have been training! people have no discipline anymore

on nacho's 8b flash in targa, little scott did the 8a stand from the 2 undercuts in the roof, one of which nacho couldn't be bothered with. scott's no slouch in roofs either so today i heard how hard this 8b actually is. the result was about 8b, just in case people were thinking it looked ok

Ben,

Is Barnaby still convinced that his problem Mega Ten is 7C+?

Also, when are you back in South Wales?  Let me know if you want some company.

Hi Kev,

I think Barnaby was a bit reluctant to grade Mega Ten too high as at the time he hadnt really climbed many Font 8's. Personally I think its got to be at least 8a, especially considering it took him so long and he is pretty much walking up 8a+'s recently!

Might be coming over to South Wales this weekend, I will send yo a PM if we do!

Cheers

Ben!
