Mega. It's been interesting following his progress on his vlog, I was particularly surprised he committed to going for a lead burn in public, it seems hard enough managing the pressure of a dangerous lead without telling a few thousand people about it.

Back on the game!! DMac E10 a decade ago wouldn't raise an eyebrow, but after all the injuries he's been through and being away from cutting edge trad, this is a great return to form (and return to weirdo grading form ;))

How this compared to other E10s?  8c R/X must put it quite high in the grade!

Quote from: DMaddy
In some ways, this route is more similar to Rhapsody (Ed: E11) - both in the region of 8c to top-rope.  But this one has ground fall potential from a couple of moves at the end of the crux, and is in a mountain situation rather than an accessible roadside crag.

Yes it seemed to add another dimension.
