Facebook write up is great reading worth a look (apart from heal / heel!).

He keeps a logbook on UKC. Refreshingly, for a wad, it isn't just a catalogue of his greatest hits but includes the warm ups as well.

His comment on Hubble is: "A cruxy one."

He’s not a social media cheese monger either like most sponsored hombres... Fairly low key. No essays of Emojis.

Pete Whittaker has flashed Christer Jansson & Erik Massih's 8b-crack “Ronny Medelsvensson” on Profilväggen in Jössingfjord. As far as I understand Ronny Medelsvensson is almost a pure jamming crack, with very few face holds and few possibilities to layback sections.

In Grimper Seb Bouin is quoted as saying that Azincourt (french spelling) is clearly a bit harder https://www.grimper.com/news-azincourt-premier-8c-france-seb-bouin-ajoute-nouvelle-piece-vintage-rock-tour

The French are the only ones more obsessed by grades than the Brits. It is clearly unhealthy imho.
