Made that look like a warm-up!

You arenít kidding. She barely looked like she was trying

I know she pisses it, but she's got a few grades in hand surely?

She does that so easily. Its great to see the new generation on old problems and routes as it gives you an idea of how far we have come.

Guess the nature of this problem suits new school climbers who can use there whole body's to climb stuff, she basically does it with her leg. Back in the days of the real thing i think people were still pretty much dragging them selves up it, the concept of compression hadn't really got going.

Amazing.

Oriane Bertone has done the first female ascent of Karma in Fontainebleau.



Awesome, would love to see a longer vid of her process on it to see how fast it came together. Says first try of the season in the vid description!

Bosi has added a low start to Dave Macleods problem Zero, calling it Below Zero. Dave gave his problem 8B and Will reckons the low start makes it 8B+.

Nice to see D Mac's grade confirmed too. Sometimes wonder just how good he is operating in kind of isolation up in Scotland, cool to see that he really is still dead good!

Looks like Will was fairly close to flashing the stand, saw a video knocking around of him firing off the last move.

I don't know what he's doing there, but I got the impression Hamish has been in Spain quite a while now (not a stalker, his dad is an old friend of mine, so I tend to notice when there's news of what he's up to).

If he starts shitting at the crag and gets a dog on a ratty rope, you'll know he's gone full native.

Some lovely attitudes coming out here.



Anyway, he finished uni last year. Spent a year in Madrid for his degree, and teaches there now.

Is all humour banned these days?  I'm all for integration and adopting local attitudes / styles /  scenes. Anyway, in a more PC style - kudos for sending hard and finding a way to live in a foreign land, far far away from this brexit-impaired shitehole.

Anna Taylor has repeated Franco Cookson's Psykovskys Sequins E8 7a on the North York Moors. Third ascent bumping think, after Franco and Dave Birkett. Interestingly she chose to solo it despite there being some gear (a filed down slider).
