One from South West Aus. This thing climbs out of some chossy cave and there's a lot of dubious looking and sounding rock.

Just like being back in the Peak  ;)

Maybe of interest to North Wales UKB folk ... Squamish FA action from expat hero / lapsed UKB poster Ding Dong

Looks a great route, amazing rock quality. Though the top bit does look very very awkward :o

Here is another one from Bohuslän on the Swedish west coast. A great line I found in the spring. So far it has resisted all my efforts, and will probably have to wait until spring due to the shitty Scandinavian weather that has inevitably turned sour. Definitely solid 8a, the moves, the line and the rock quality is as good as it gets.

A bit of phone footage of a nice route on nth cloud. Safe and steady for the grade, protected by an rp1 and offset 0 not bad to place on lead. An amazing spot away from it all and Dan Varians Nth power looks amazing

It's such a great view up there isn't it? The light and shower across the snooker table into Leek is wonderful.

I climbed on the wave with your mate in the video recently, nice chap.

Think I met this chap at Almscliffe in the summer, when he was in Yorkshire visiting family. Would that be right?

Hi Guy, yeah it’s a mega spot up there. The weather blowing in made for an interesting day. Ben is a top bloke and a great cabinet maker if you ever need anything making!

Hey Dan - nice video! The route looks great, I hadn't ever really thought about it before but this has piqued my interest. What's the music / spoken word / poem you used?

Thanks Reeve, hope you’re well dude. A good one to try and onsight or flash for you, the only dangerous move being the 6a rock up to the gear which you wouldn’t want to fire off. The music is ‘Woozy with Cider’ by James Yorkston, there’s an ep with some remixes of it, this was the original but I like the Jon Hopkins one too.

Yes I'm well thanks Dan, and yourself? Ah nice found it on Spotify (not cool enough for EPs here obvs). Let me know if you're stuck for a partner for any similar obscure grit over winter

I’m not to bad thanks Reeve, currently managing / trying to avoid the circus that is climbing today 😬 should be able to get out Saturdays over winter. I’m on messenger so will ping you a message. Re the EP thing, it’s the wrong way round, you’re obvs to cool for such things over there.

8c+/9a like hubble. Always was and always should be. I believe there are easier sequences as well now.

Wonder if it would still have had 24 ascents if it was graded 8c+/9a  :-\

Can we reinstate our old grading scale after the 29th of march. And ban knee bars and pastel coloured clothes.
