Are we still on 8b+ with this thread?

If so, Ali Kennedy (kalea borroka and Helvetia), Alexis Perry (Tuppence Ha'penny)

Bumped it up to 8c because there was too many at 8b+. Alexis is already on there for Death Star, though with a question mark because it's pretty eliminate.

To avoid confusion, it might be worth a mod changing the thread title from 8b+ to 8c? Just a thought

Is nothing safe from upgrading now?

That's reminded me, Bruno Marks did True North and I can't seem to see him. Sorry, I looked at updating the table myself but think it needs a GitHub account?

AFAIK he didn't do it. I spoke to him at the crag last year or the year before I think about him getting back on it in the future to get it ticked.

Was chatting with Ian at the weekend and he mentioned he'd done deathstar with the same sequence as the FA https://github.com/bourbonspecial/UKStrongPeople/blob/master/men_routes.md

Are you even British anymore if you say "fall" instead of "Autumn" though?  ;)

Pedant's corner: autumn is older but fall also originated in Britain, from where it was transplanted to America.

Automne surely originated in France, from the deity.

Pet peeve: it should be harvest/hærfest in English, like in German, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch, etc...

You're probably right; I was just thinking of the Anglo-US context and, in particular, that fall is not uniquely American.

Merriam-Webster claims autumn was adopted from around 1300, replacing harvest.

ps. I haven't climbed 8b+
