Dave abbed it and placed gear (Mina's never used cams before). Ground up in terms of climbing

Fuck  :o, and to think there was a time when it was deemed prudent to serve at least a prefunctory trad apprenticeship before going balls deep on a hard groundup.  :lol: :-\

Times have changed.

I think it's a highball 7C boulder problem with a well protected top bit done in this style, which of course is awesome and impressive but I'm not sure it's hard trad ground up as I'm not sure times have changed that much either. I think this is unfamiliar done in a hard trad style, onsight above 1 pad:

But otherwise that is entirely correct. Although I'm pretty sure that's how Mina wanted it.

Seems to have disappeared already, shame.

I wonder if Ross knows about that video being online? It was certainly a very impressive ascent at the time.

I'm not sure, the video was in with the consumed stuff on You Tube, apologies if the climber didn't know it was there   :shrug:   

It looked like a pretty awesome ascent of a great piece of rock, which is why I posted it. A significant repeat from about 12 - ish years ago I'm guessing.

Mark Katz did bulbhaul over the weekend, ?3rd ascent?
Made all the more impressive as the more diminutive climber requires about ten extra moves to gain the lip.

Just saw on 8A that Callum coldwell-storry has flashed black Lung and blackout in Joes valley (both 8B), strong effort if true!

and recorded flashing Masterpiece 8A+ and did Mandela on the same day

So what's going on here? Is it bullshit or has he been fraped ?

.....has he been fraped ?

Am I being unnecessarily sensitive or is anyone else uncomfortable with the term "fraped"?

(Apologies for the off topic)

Never even heard of it so looked it up and it appears to be a portmanteau.  Yet to form an opinion on its suitability.

Facebook is terrible.
Rape is worse.
"Frape" is the worst of both.

I've been educated. I thought it was cold coffee.
