Ha, yeah forgot about that, though is Going Down crimpy on the crux?

It is yes, left hand i seem to remember. Being tall would help a lot. Taller than Ryan

Good knowledge, RH is the bad one so might be okay. Got the being taller than Ry sorted too... Though his span is bigger than mine I think

I can assure you going down has more than one small left hand crimp on it!!  ;). Having put far too much of my life into that thing, one thing to be sure of is not to go on it with dodgy fingers. And, a big reach is an advantage and equally a disadvantage.
As far as I'm aware it helped Ryan miss the 2nd crux (itself 7c.. which is a cross over with the right to the sharpest rattest crimp on the crag) out but the way he did it was probably harder and virtually impossible without tele-arms. Ryan didn't do it all though did he? A fall from near the end may be?

Is that a knee scum I see?

Just watched the clip back and can't see any contact of knee on rock?

Looks like because of shin length his knee is getting grazed in that corner anyway, hence the tape.

Apart from the bit where he rinses his knee into the roof  :lol: if you use high friction tape is it a knee pad  :worms:

We all know about downgrades for those of average height, but do we also need to start collecting shin length data now?

That's ace! Only the third ascent since the flake broke I think? After Bransby and Mawson.

Rumour of the second ascent of another route at the Tor today. You got any intel Remus?

No inside knowledge, sorry! I can guess what you're hinting at though, cool news if it's true.
