Is it just me or could it go from a much lower start?

does anyone know if anyone got round to climbing the original version of the sitter yet? Supposedly adds 8A+ into Sleepwalker, whereas Return adds 8B.

Bosi should have had a bash after ROTSW, could have been a quick 8C+/9A FA.

There's a rumour dark horse Griff Whiteside did this before DWoods did ROTSW but not sure how true it is. Happened to speak to someone who knows him and he wasn't sure, sounds like pulling teeth to get him to admit what he's climbed even as a mate

Nice, we've all heard that story before. Did you flash the zone? "I can't say". Did you ground up Careless Torque? "I couldn't possibly comment"

Given that Whiteside published video of loads of his significant ascents I would see no reason to doubt any claim he actually made

Noticed Dave Mc did his long term project at 8B+ [Bultitude], and followed the trend of not telling anyone for a month. Will Bosi repeated in in a day a few weeks back and held off with that news until Dave released his. I had thought this would be harder as its taken him a long time.

Footage of Will's ascent around 12:28 in this video
