Amazing job, though it does look like he had his right hand sewn onto his left arm to do it, which must be ethically questionable:

Amazing effort.

I can't understand that photo at all. That is his right hand, on his left arm. WTF!

Just look what happens when people apply that whole leashless drytooling handswapping ethic to proper climbing.

This is the most impressive news I've heard for a while. Not many of the worlds best trad climbers can put in a world class bouldering performance. What an amazing climber he is! I'd like to see Daniel Woods on Echo Wall!  :bow:

Brilliant.

If the rain ever stops in west Scotland, we may see his Glen Nevis projects fall soon...

What utter pessimism....Spring is the best time of year in Scotland for getting out on rock and given the mild winter the big melt will happen sooner than usual this year.

Aye, but in the discontinued stix mind, a good advert for the current range of clogs  :great:

Awesome! Yet another inspiring ascent/ write-up.

Looks like he's got a Boostic on his right foot and a Stix on the left.

Well if he can swap his hands to different arms then changing shoes mid problem shouldn't be a problem.

Dave is the next stage in human evolution - opposable thumb wasn't enough, he has an opposable pinky too.

But will we?
In E11, Claire (his wife) says something about all the dangerous stuff stopping when he has a child.
Maybe he is changing his priorities slightly.

Well seen as they consist of a boulder project and a sport project, I think we can safely assume they will get done.

Plus, he's done Indian Face since then  ;)

That's a good problem!
Got told by a German named Fabian that he showed Malc muttertag n went round to clean the top for him, by the time he'd walked round the boulder Malc met him comin over the top. Then within 20 mins he climbed thro the sit to miss the top hold. He put his boots in his bag n Fabien said what are you doing its one of the best projects here to which Malc replied its not is it n then walked off.
Sorry for goin all Lincoln on everyone

That's what i get for not looking properly  :rtfm:

Still used stix though, or maybe scarpa only gave him one poostic (they don'yt make them in my size so i'm a bit jealous really, but luckily i still have 5 pairs of stix  :great: )

Definitely an awesome ascent.

I was wondering how Dense would manage to say something disparaging about this, but obviously I underestimated his supply of anecdotes to fall back on!
