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

 :lol:

you're thinking of "bummed in the gob"

Anyway this is seriously  :offtopic:  I want to know whether someone did or did not do something

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

Do you believe everything you read on there you gullible twat ?  :jab:

Having seen videos of both, they look like they have reasonable grips and powerful moves and are feasibly flashable for some strong bastard who gets a bit of luck? I assumed it was a mate on his laptop/iPad messing around but it would be amazing if not  :strongbench:

"End of The Affair" by Dave Mason is not worth a mention?
Historic route, etc.

Not being rude but not really 'significant' any more is it? 27 years old, numerous repeat including female, several flashes, one onsight. Unless he flashed it?

Bloody hell news travels fast these days, although I note that the news about how devilishly handsome his belayer was appears to have been edited out. Mind you I might have been quicker had I not had to clean the kitchen before going online. Yes, Dave flashed Gaia very very impressively. Very significant I think, only the second flash by a Brit after Ryan. You would almost think that flashes of this kind of thing should be commonplace these days but they don't seem to be, no-one seems keen. Either that or they fall off. So chapeau to Dave!  :beer2: :bow:

Nibs Dave didn't flash EOTA although I'm sure he could of if he'd tried. Headpointing it hasn't been significant since about 1988 I'm afraid.

Nigel missed out the fact that he also climbed Gaia. So a good day all round. Has Gaia had an ascent with a chalk and blow on every move?!

I assume he whispered "..still got it" having rolled over that final move

Modest bastard. Still, not at all 'significant' so presumably he was keeping his head down. Who went first?

Bloody good effort flashing Gaia, the top of the groove is a bit sketch until you know what you're doing, I'm glad I didn't go for the flash.

It's an absolute path if you headpoint it.

Yeah pre-practising the shit out of ancient routes is not significant hence no need to spray. However I'll quite happily be less modest in the various drinking holes of Sheffield, especially after a few, by which time I'm usually the best climber ever. Anyway, to answer your question; Dave went first, after I'd top-roped it. It was a spur of the moment thing I think, I certainly didn't know beforehand! I must admit I was really really gripped belaying him as if he'd fallen off he might not have been able to belay me, but thank fully he cruised it so he could perform his duties.
