I was up at malham yesterday.. to warm up he onsighted zoolook (made it look piss - but he should). Then he onsighted overnight sensation before working the extension. I tried to get him to go to Baildon Bank - he sounded suitably inspired and said he'd try to fit it in!

Thank the lord for Ben P, purveyor of facts. Certainly doesn't sound like a crusathon (yet), but we await with baited breath.

But how TENACIOUS is he? Is Sharples there to assess?

as in tenacious being an ascent practised over a minor geological age?

So all we know at the minute is on his first (?) day he flashed an 8a (not surprised), failed to flash and 8b+ (bit of a suprise) and worked the hardest route at the crag (not suprised). Oh, and he's apparently made of rubber. Like Stretch Armstrong.  Good to know he's on form then  ::)

The big question is how many pints did he sink in the Listers last night?

Is he old enough yet? Actually given that part of the world it would be unlikely to be an issue.

Well he ain't old enough over here, but to look at the lad, he's either the next step of evolution or he's never touched a pint in his life.

With a bit of luck he'll turn 18, get fat and we can all stop worrying about how shit we are

if you're going to do massive writing, don't bugger up the spelling.

people are giving 5 stars to some rather average snaps of Ondra... Is celebrity culture really this big in climbing?
If so I'm going to pitch Hello Magazine vertical edition to the insect overlords...

Apparently he on-sighted Predator, the Oak and Magnetic and had 3 RPs on Overshadow. I didn't witness any of this but I thought I'd post it in case anyone else is as obsessed with celebrity climbing culture as me. I was also told about an impressive redpoint of Space Invaders by another up and coming young star but details on this are a bit hazy at the moment.

Onsighting predator is very impressive - it's massively technical and tenuous on the feet, it's a soft redpoint but a very impressive onsight.

I predict it'll be a circus this weekend at Malham, I won't be going to find out.

Do you not like clowns, or is it the cruelty to animals that puts you off?

Maybe you could help Ondra escape the crowds. Offer him a lift to Giggleswick...

2 more attempts on rainshadow
2 8b onsights
3 8a+  on sight
I only saw the 8a+ and the 8b on sights, so cant confirm the others and he 8a+ onsight I think he will discount as when shoued at to grab the chain he jmped off.
I think he onsighted another 8a today but im not sure, did he do zoolook yesterday? he though that was hard and probably 8a+, thats a quote from someone else.
Very very very very veryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryveryvery awesome to watch

Some of you lot are such grumpy bastards! Any particular reason to be so cynical?  :shrug:
