Nice! According to UKC there are no women climbing hard grades or 'yoof' for that matter  :lol:

I don't get this comment, what do you mean?

Lots of recent moaning about kids all being shit compared to 'the old days' when moon, moffat and co were kids

Others may be able to confirm/deny:
Dalvinder?

Dal mentioned to me yesterday that she had done Soft Option (now gets 8a+) - and I should imagine there are plenty more at least as hard in her tick list.

Soft Option still gets 8a. Though Dal did the 50/5 / Ashes link, which is 8a+.

Oh and Dal did La Lapin today just to confirm her into the list. Obviously got more in the tank too as it was humid as hell today.

Great effort. Tried it this morning with Dal, and sacked it off as too smeggy. Amazing considering.

no names to be mentioned, obviously, but I'd be interested to know how many of these people are over 40, over 50 etc. if anyone has a rough idea

Well, Dals over 40, and just had her second child within the last year, so even more impressive!

Natalie Berry is the most impressive. 105 according to 8a.nu. Makes Karin Magog look like a spring chicken.

Soft Option still gets 8a.

SO has never been 8a+ or suggested as such far as i know. Dal did it really quickly if i remember right, and didn't seem to find it too bad.

Interesting that, on a quick scan, it appears to be only blokes contributing to this thread (apologies if i skimmed past some female contributers).

Good point  :)

My inner nerd has just reported in, saying that the list should be Michaela Tracy and Mia Stacey respectively btw.

My mistake - sure that someone told me it was being upgraded in the forthcoming guide (anyone know when is is due by the way?).

I'd corrected the latter mispelling on the older posts, looks like Stu re-introduced it! To be fair to him, I was the first to get it wrong.

looks like you should book flights to the Costa Blanca this winter.

Or if you get no joy there, Kalymnos ;)

Ruth Jenkins did Zeke the Freak and, I think, Caviar and The Sissy at Rubicon in the 1990s.

Thanks for playing Grimer. Sadly these fail the "recent" part of the test.

  • Largely broken. Obsolete spares and scrap only.
    • The Boulder Bunker climbing centre

I'm often convinced it was only 10 years ago....

I was pedalling misinformation earlier; Cherry did pet cemetery, not pp; apologies. I knew the line she'd done; but got the names mixed up.

If we are going to that level of detail its probably worth pointing out that Jenny Woodward hasn't done Huecool.

Perhaps we should set this up as a sticky topic so it can be updated as more 8's (and someday a 9) get ticked and maybe change the title to something like "Fit birds who go climbing.."
