Apparently this made it in to the German climbing magazine 'Klettern'.  Didn't realise it was international news!

Maybe we should have some convention where J Ibbertson refers to the father, J ibbertson refers to the mother, j Ibbertson refers to the first son and j IBbertson refers to the second son.

Emily Philips 13yrs has done La Cucina Dell'Inferno 8a at Massone Arco, on her first redpoint after a brief working after her onsight attempt. This is as far as I am aware the youngest GB female ascent of an 8a. She was on a Junior GB Team Training and the route received ascents from Jo Neame, Aiden Dunne, Kieran Forrest and Stan Harris all after Emily's. Great to see these kids enjoying some hard routes outside as well as climbing really hard on plastic. Emily has made 3 European Youth Cup Finals too this year 2 in bouldering 1 in lead

I have a feeling this won't be the last we hear from her.

A shout has to go out to her coach Si Rawlinson, who's currently training a whole generation of future Emilys under the radar in Cardiff. Hopefully he'll see some more recognition as young mutants keep appearing from the sticks of South Wales.

Toby Roberts one year after doing the youngest ascent of Raindogs at 10 years old has done the youngest ascent of Revelations 8b at Raven Tor. Jumping a full grade in one year, well done Toby great effort. He has had his youngest ascent of Raindogs taken by Jack Ibbotson but it's great to see these young climbers trying hard.

Big news out in China at the World Youth Climbing Championships Tara Hayes takes a silver medal in the bouldering, William Bosi takes a bronze in the bouldering and a silver in the overall (lead, bouldering and speed) these were the icing on the cake as the whole team did very well, well done Team GB

The route in question I believe was Stolen, the extension of Cold Steal 8a.

Livvy Gent (11) did Mr Poppers 7C last month. I think it was only her second trip trying harder stuff - pretty impressive!
