Can't believe we are all still writing on this thread and theres not even a confirmed send or route being projected yet!  We need facts (routes/grades/onsight/flash/redpoint).  Anyone got any? :shrug:

 :o   Christ! that must be a photoshopped pic or something!  if his hands really are that big, and he is quite tall and thin as a rake then its not suprising he is crushing everything he touches.

cheers

Look at any other pics - hands are normal sized, some lens or PS based trickery.

I am staggered by the lack of fact around this visit. As Doyle said, finally a truly world class climber comes to the UK. There's rafts of old scool grades and McClure 9a's that people suspect are harder and we've had about as much fact as one of the televised political debates. Was he redpointing Overshadow on his 1st day or had he been working it for days previous, how close was he to a cryfreedom onsight (I thought it was 8a+ or so to the last move or 2 so did he only onsight 8a+ worth of climbing. Is he off to Kilnsey, PenTrywn or the Tor?

Come on boys (& girls), pull your fingers out and get us somw fact.

I've been waiting for about 15 years since messers Tribout, Chevieux & Lombard came over and ticked some 8b+/8c's, before that Jibe & Raboutou were the last wads to tick big Nos (didn't Jibe do Cry Freedom in 2 days & downgrade it to 8b+, Ondra's already had a day on it so can't surpass Jibe.

I said this wasn't news yet. We have some importance, but no fact. Do the maths.

i saw him try and red point overshadow. came to a halt at the first boulder problem. he worked it for a bit - couldn't do it. pulled past it. climbed a wee bit higher then came down.

his onsight attempt on cry freedom came to a halt halfway up the groovy thing above the lower wall (not familiar wit hthe route so no more details, sorry.)

hten he sat around for a bit and then he went home.

Nevermind those. Get the world's best on the world's hardest move.

You mean he left for the day, or buggered off back to Czech land?
