So off the back of the route climbing thread I thought it would be good to have a bouldering one. Five year cut off?

Off the top of my head (and I've been awake for an hour already and am really fully unqualified to do this);

Madams
Jonny Argue
CJD?
Doyle?
Danny Cattel?
James Squire
Ellis Barker-Butler
Rich Hession
Ben Freeman
Dave Mason
Ty Landman?
Alex Barrows
Liam Fyffe?
Ned
Ste Watson
Dan Varian
Pete Robins
Dave MacLeod


There must be loads of others...

Also, I feel I should set up a women's thread but what grade should this start at?

PEDANTRY ALERT.

The title actually says UK men who have climbed less than or equal to 8B recently.

Would be a long list

I never paid much attention at maths but thought the same. Does that mean my maximum 6C this year that I'm way out in front of everyone compared to the threshold?

Much to my disappointment, I'm not on the list unless we're counting long boulder/route hybrids of >40 moves.

I think Beastly Squirrel got a mention on the significant repeats thread on a Swiss 8B?

Edit - here it is, from Duma in the Effort Youth thread:

James Squire (beastly squirrel on here) is in magic and did his first 8B, Riders On The Storm today.
