holy shit the way he climbs that could be so much smoother, which just means he's probably carrying 8c/+ in him he just needs to get on them!

that video was so cool to watch just him using raw power to get him self through it!

It's "name" you can change, not "username". It will have the desired effect.

Amazing. Word is he's not too shoddy on the grit boulders either. To be honest I'm hoping for a bit longer than that before Jacob starts burning me off!

Yeah to think I got into climbing at age 11 and used to consider that young! It almost seems weird now that there were so few climbing kids 20-30 years ago.

I didnt start until I was 22... Which on reflection was probably a good thing - I think I'd have got fed up with it if I'd done it as a yoof...

That said, my later in life climbing career (cough cough) had its seeds firmly sowed back in the late 70's... On wet walking hols in N.Wales I remember nursing a pint mug of hot chocolate in Petes looking over in awe/bewilderment at a large table of climbers talking away in the corner... something about their enthusiasm/manner/scruffiness/didntgiveashitness about them inspired me in later life...

And a plate of cheesy chips of course :)
