I dont think conditions make that much difference if your not trying stuff at your limit, not to the extent i fee i need to cart a fan about.

North Wales local Kieran Forrest has done Liquid Ambar in very quick time. 1 sesh last year and 4 this year matching Moonís 5 days in the early 90s. Heís primarily trained indoors for comps for years - no surprise heís so strong then. I used to see him down there years ago when he was a tiny boy trying to top rope 8aís. Almost 30 years to the day after Jerrys FA, crazy itís not been done more given how classic/historic/good it is.

Good effort. About time this got some more repeats.

I would have thought the good youngsters would demolish it pretty quickly. Not heard of this lad before.

Watched him do it yesterday belayed by his dad, pretty cool. Low key crusher. Hadn't realised he was trying it until the other day, hardly the siege. He also got high on the flash of Walking Muscle 8b+ falling just below the crack of OTM. Pilgrimage in sight..

Laura Rogora has repeated Ali Hulk sit extension total, 9b, in Rodellar, making her the second woman to have climbed 9b. Ali Hulk sit extension total is one of the twelve or thirteen different Ali/Hulk links and is basically a short extension of Dani Andradas Ali Hulk extension sit start, also 9b. If I understand what I read.

Laura Rogora has previously done one 9a+, Pure dreaming Plus, in Massone. She has also done four 9as and eight 8c+/9a

Is that a route with a sit start?

Amazing achievement, but what a terrible route. Hope you're not lowering your standards jwi!

Bradders, as I understand it, it's a sit start, to a boulder extention, to route in a 20ft high grotty cave. Worse it's in the bottom of Rodellar, so you're surrounded by soaring world class lines.

Whilst i'm on I thought i'd add a few bits i caught wind of over the last few weeks or so.

Bosi completed the stuff at Badger cove.

Aidan broke Little Women making the 7B stand pretty damn tricky imo now, much much harder than 7B, he still went on to do the full thing that session, 8B now he says  :lol: . I went and had a look and deleted it from my list of things to try, stand is too hard for me now, never mind the full thing.

He then added a link going rightwards into Kylie which is also "8B". He also made an ascent of Texas hold em sit, not sure what the crack is with this, be interested for anyone who knows the background of the problem better than me. For sure it's hard and probably a FA, unless Gaskin's actually did it. He also did the Wave project at Biblins, I can only guess it's quite hard since Squire has tried and not done and he's a mutant.

Hamish Potokar climbed Spaceship at Biblins too, his first 8B+.

Mickey Page climbed every hard lime problem in the peak but doesn't want everyone to know haha.

Do you know what broke on the stand? I did it a few years back and canít think what would have broken to massively change it - though itís probably just my memory...

Yeah the high left hand sidepull, I did the moves on the stand but didn't link even from after the crux of LW to the end. Gutted, a proj gone.

Thanks for the update Jack, I'd seen Hamish had done Spaceship but the rest was news to me. Especially impressed with the biblins wave project, maybe cos its the only one I've seen in the flesh, seems incomprehensible to me!
