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.

Hamish Potokar has repeated the hardest problem in La Pedriza, El Elegido 8B+/C

Vid below, assume of stitched together clips as the camera wasn't running for the send...

What’s he doing in Madrid? I thought he was at Glasgow Uni?

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).

Didnt fraco solo that, give it E10 and then Birkett filed the slider and downgraded it to E8?

Good work Anna... crikey.

8b whilst 5 months pregnant seems pretty significant to me!

Does that mean Sam Marks et al all soloed it, not just Franco?

Nah, he just wanted to share the glory with his mates, which is fair enough.

It does make for a very confusing coda to the route description though, making it sound like several people lead it then Dave Warbuton soloed it! Not quite as confusing as the use of the word ‘reflexing’ though.

Ha I thought that. Makes no sense whatsoever.

Agreed. Not a fucking chance Sam Marks is getting his sausage chops in them shot holes.
