Nice one Pope, great to see how enthusiastic he is. Just think what he could do if he got a car...

I think I've done all the 8s onsight. Def onsighted 8A and 8a although any E8 I've done may only be flash or GU. The only time I os an 8A in the UK I got excited about doing all the 8s (also VIII) in 12 months, os or GU and all in the UK. I managed to get a sport 8a done (something at Kilnsey) but then that winter I didn't even pick up my ice axes... Think the chances of me flashing an 8A again are getting slimmer and slimmer.

Pretty sure Caff hasn't flashed 8A. Imagine Robbins has done 8a and E8 and has the ability to have done an 8A but might have spent all his time developing new things instead. Agree Jordan, Ryan or Dave Mac could well have, it's just the 8A I'm not sure about. Could also be someone like Varian or Micky P could slip on if one of the highballs gets E8.

Obv Pearsons has.

Pos Steve Mac?

On a slightly more off topic slant (and a bit more of a HALAM) I once had a pair of boots in which I had climbed 8A, 8a, E7 on grit and trad, freed El Cap in a day, and freed the 2300m (from Torre glacier) Eslovac on Fitz Roy. This was when 5.10 were good.

If Robins flashed a 8A hed downgrade it. He thinks 7C+ should take 3 sessions . .....

Same for Jordan. He would be on the list no problems except all the 8A's he's flashed are not really 8A....

I haven't flashed sport 8a, but done the others. What's the best choice for an unfit boulderer? :lol:

Been meaning to do this for a while now.

If you had the beta I think you'd flash The Big Apple at Stoney. It's fierce bouldery climbing, rather than being pumpy.

Permadry too I would imagine.

Salar, R&H, Out of my tree, Hot fun, Subculture, Baby chimes... there's loads. All crap compared to the longer ones though! Baby chimes maybe the best?

Mussel Beach. Bouldery, soft, minimal endurance needed and its not crap (and you get to go LPT).

Cheers for the suggestions. I have done boulders of R&H and OOMT. I think I have tried Salar as well, I've definitely looked at it! What's the one at the Tor just to the right of pinches wall section? Big locky moves between ok holds? Sure someone recommended that.

You might be thinking of Call of Nature. If you're prepared to go to those dizzying enduro heights then the world's your oyster. Or at least slightly disapointing uk lime is: the toilet, powerplant, roof warrior, freemonster, raindogs, probably upstairs at Malham, le lapin (kilnsey), anything at Cheddar...

That's the one!

Been on Free Monster years ago and dogged up RD to get to RS boulder.

You wouldn't feel like you'd done an 8a on that one.

Is this a joke?! Or does the "7bish" boulder grade extend quite a way!

Entree is bouldery, but fucking savage for 8a. Shame Lockless got downgraded, that used to be a free 8a onsight for those who wanted one.
