V15 for the first crux, which is a single move! Is that the hardest single move ever graded?

What a fantastic problem, with the switch around on the second move. Inspiring  ;D

Just go right hand on the first move  :shrug: fewer moves = easier boulder

can't help but note the foot ledge that might be useful for the lanky

When I first saw this I thought he was using the ledge, but I've just noticed it's a foothold a little higher.

I think I follow about 4 people who have been trying this recently, it's pretty cool to see their attempts and how they're progressing on it.

Left hand hold looks considerably worse than the right:

While we're on the RyuWad bandwagon, the power endurance on on display here is utterly ridiculous:

Note that he has climbed this line now. Looks more impressive than grand illusion to me.

And 29 seconds, 3 fingers on the BM2K bottom outer edge:

Best weighlifting channel on the internet.
Lasha is a monster.
The 225 snatch was unreal.

The fingerboard beast is back at it again (this time on the campus rungs)

Imagine if you see him rock up to your local wall with his gloves on and think what a punter.

Not sure how kosher the spacing is, got a feeling it was a little off last time some of his campus boarding was discussed? Regardless it looks fucking miles.

First move trailing hand finishes below his belt line, second move comfortably below the shoulder. Gotta be some big moves by anyone's standards

63kg woman picks up the Dinnie stones



Crazy given the weight of them and how many very strong people have failed.

Genetics, drugs, psychotic levels of dedication and RPE 9,000+

Great effort. Big respect.

She looks like the perfect size for that lift, she gets prepped and is basically all aligned and then "just" needs to do a small leg straighten - big advantage over taller lifters?

That said, it's still insanely impressive!  Even the grip strength to 1-arm 200kg!

This is an Instagram story so will disappear shortly but Daniel Woods barefoot on a board doing the most ridiculous static cross through I've ever seen:

I'll try next time I go there. Looks more relevant to climbing than their circuits.

Friend of mine fractured his skull attempting something similar to that in the old Tremadog barn, which lacked the nice padded floor
