Bear with me on this one.

Billy Ridal became British Lead and then Speed champion today, then warmed down a couple of hours later in the pass by doing Diesel Power, Mr fantastic and Pools of Bethesda.
Brilliant. Legendary feats of strength cross post.

Yep pretty special afternoons climbing that, never mind the mornings work. Not many manage Pools. The cave brought him back down to earth the following day mind!

Mathew Wright on Evolution. Don't blink



That's f'ing excellent. Andy F, please pass on a huge well done from me, if that's ok.

Matt's been "one to watch" for a while.

Very, very well done Matt  :2thumbsup:

Also of course, massive congrats to Emma on Big Bang. Massive. And total respect for her posts on Instagram about more important things  :bow:

Anything about the Meltdown is worth a repost :)

Ace. With la Rambla and this done, he's not going to know what to do with himself!

Not a repeat (yet, wasn't sure where else to put this) but some intriguing next level things happening in pursuit of the 2nd ascent of Burden of Dreams!

... although I’m glad that I’m sufficiently shit at climbing for there to be no danger of ever having a film crew like that filming me at the crag.

I wonder if there's a worthwhile business venture for selling replica holds of famous problems. If I had a big woodie and more money than sense I'd love to have an exact replica of Burden of Dreams set up. You need to warm up somehow right?

Count me out as a buyer. I'm a bit uncertain of the ethics of exact replicas - I wouldn't want to risk invalidating my flash.

You probably shouldn't watch those age of Ondra vids Moose. Surely sieging something in your mind over and over invalidates the flash.

I was surprised to see that the replicas of the "boulder problem" from Freerider which were set at bouldering walls around the world as part of the promotion for Free Solo, were set with standard holds rather than casts of the original rock.

Matilda Söderlund has repeated Elder Statesman in Frankenjura, becoming the 2nd woman after Chiara Hanke  to have climbed 9a in Frankenjura (I think).
