In fairness It depends how you break it down.I always thought of it as 7B to the undercuts, then 7C+ to the jug, then 7A+ to the top. But between the 7B and 7C+ there's not really a rest so is logical to think of it as a single 8A boulder.I guess it's going back to the point earlier In the thread that says what counts as a boulder.
Quote from: Ru on June 12, 2019, 05:54:32 pmDon't think Make it Funky is 8a. Or Jehovahkill. They might be in modern grades I suppose. We've all done easier ones in Switzerland. Seraphim might be 8a in retrospect.I'm calling bull on this not being a font 8A. I spent 8 days on this and never managed to even stick the ear let alone get to the jug, this was in the period when I was doing font 8A in a session and did keen roof and fat lip in 3 sessions.Definitely 8A boulder and only about 10 moves to the jug from the group which makes it not even that long of a boulder.

Re Jehovakill, that's what was relayed to me, and compared to other things I've tried, doesn't seem very far out.

Depends again on which sections you are counting. The whole thing is at least 8A, the crux few moves a bit easier. I thought there were two blocs the lower crux being about 7C+, but this was 16 years ago. I feel old.
Remus - you going to compile the list on this ?

it should be restricted to actual trad above gear rather than highballs.
I had a quick look into it after doing Transcendence and there was no real contenders for true roped trad 8's in england/wales but i didn't look too hard north of the border.
I wonder if Rob would have used pads for Careless if they existed at the time? Jumping from higher and higher off NTBTA to test your landing seems similar to a highballing mindset.
I've left off Meltdown and TVBATVS, unless anyone wants to make an argument for them to be on the list?
