Good photo on here: https://www.ukclimbing.com/news/2018/09/new_font_8c_at_biblins_cave_from_james_squire-71695

It actually looks distinctly non-shit, pretty amazing for Brizzle-area natural limestone!!

James has added another 8C to Biblins - "Ambition"

From my understanding he first did an 8A+ called "The Avenue" a year or two back. Then added a sit start to that at 8B+ called "Keep it Real".

This is basically a high extended finish to "Keep it Real" which adds some crazy and big moves after the original finish.

Bon job James! Super cool. Remember looking at that with him a couple of years ago, it has good holds and lets you use some funky tech, but connecting them (especially on the lower bit) takes some grit and a good bit of disregard for your shoulder ligaments.

Now for the half cave lip traverse starting up Punter Proof!!! (which is probably easier to be fair...)

Great stuff. Biblins has got to be up there with Parisellas for hard link ups now right? Harder, even! And better looking....  :worms:
