This is amazing. 7C with a hand amputation.

Having spent some time on Bagheera I'm doubly impressed, the crux for me was the move low down off the left hand crimp which wasn't amazing. No idea how you'd do it without being able to crimp it.

Hate to say it but… chalk bag dab, back around…

Obviously just joking. Don’t know the problem but that certainly seems massively impressive!

What's the reference, or is it just an in-joke?

Taking the piss by suggesting he doesn't have the credibility/experience to know the difference between 8C and 8C+

By extension, maybe his Sleepwalker downgrade is unwarranted too

I think in a subsequent podcast will said sleepwalker (stand) was easier than ilse (sit) and therefore that he might have been wrong with ilse sit, I can't remember where I heard though.. Maybe the nugget interview he did shortly after?

That's fucking cool. Well impressive given he hasn't done loads outside (though I guess if there was an 8B to try and flash in the UK The Ace is probably it).

He even keeps the left hand on! Super impressive, nice one Max.

He mentions in the UKC article that it's been a long held dream to flash it, bit of a shame Adam got there first!

Well impressive given he hasn't done loads outside

Yeah it's amazing seeing comp climbers flashing a grade below their "maximum" - although, clearly, it wouldn't be their actual maximum if they spent some more time trying things.

Hope this bodes well for Budapest - Jim soloed an E7, maybe rock is the new comp training...

Max has done quite a bit on rock, he just doesn't feel the need to shout about it and green tick all over his Instagram  :lol:

I guess the joker would be one of the easiest 8As to flash from a technical point of view. If you're strong enough.. As someone that's never touched it, how do the holds compare to,  say,  the 6mm/8mm micro crimps? If one could do a similar move off the beastmaker 8mms for example,  would the flash be on?
