Ben Bransby made short work of the 5th ascent of The Crack/Screaming Dream today. First session, 3rd or 4th go, well good.

Nice. I remember the footage of Jason Kehl doing that with some wack haircut and a lot of shouting. Pretty pure-looking problem.

I think he built a totem pole of them, set fire to it, and left it smouldering beneath the problem to give suitable sending vibes  :alien:

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!

This is the kid who totally rinsed Karma in Neil's recent vid right? Good skills.  :thumbsup:

I wish it was called God Nodule now. Having seen it in the flesh can confirm it is indeed very cool.

not a repeat, but a FA and I think it's newsworthy.
yesterday Michele Caminati finally completed his project down here at Amiata.
considering that "The Island" took him some days, and this one two months (just this year) during which he basically lived under the boulder, I'm quite curious to see his comments on 8a.nu and his blog.
I've been lucky to witness it and to film it.

God module is classic and the FA monster that is James Litz is a deep south legend. Subsequent Litz party tricks include God module in trainers, wearing a bouldering pad and with Ana Burgos piggyback. I spent 11 years with those cats, just totally awesome area and community (blurry eyes)... jb

yesterday Michele Caminati finally completed his project down here at Amiata.

sorry if I quote myself, but Michele finally put the problem on his scorecard. he gave it hard 8b+, but what's more important is that he reckoned it's his hardest climb. considering his CV that's quite impressive IMO.
I also think it's quite funny that he climbed the best lines all over the world, and came to a personal nightmare under a small roof in a small town where noone knows about climbing and that noone knows...
I spoke to him yesterday and it's been the first time I've heard him say "I'm completely spent, I need a layoff".

Nice little vid that, and a great looking problem.  :)

Not sure if this is classed as significant, but it brought a massive smile to the guy that did the deed (called Tim I think) -
Cherry falls at the cliff in a session.  Classy and hard 8a+. 8)
