I did think that the title jarred slightly with the extremely British (and polar opposite of golden era Jerry) imposter syndrome vibe. I think it would've made more sense if they'd called it A Handful of What Might Be Really Quite Hard Boulders in England, or Nine FAs and some Numerals.Or maybe just Aidanimal...

Really enjoyed that, very inspiring.
Totally makes sense about keeping grading in the area accurate within the scope of the area. the point was highlighting that the grades are going to be out if the ĎGí is the reference (thatís a compliment if anything as it most likely means the sandbag express has rolled through the lakes and the blocs are even harder than stated!)I guess the only way to really iron out the grades is for people to repeat and give honest opinions based on their personal experience, unfortunately there are very few on the planet who could really give accurate thoughts except for a handful of people strong in that style or perhaps the MellowCru.The films amazing the Climbingís inspiring as hell, it was merely a comment to suggest that comparatively across the globe the grades will be out (it only bothers me in the sense if I walk an hour to a crag to try problem X thatís Ďwithin my grade rangeí only to find its two or three grades out Iíd be disappointed as time is a precious commodity for most - Iím to fat and weak to try any of aidans blocs as an obvious point) Again the lads a mutant and a nice guy the film is Fabulous, itís just a passing comment.If you liked Doyle initial G film I recommend a viewing of his latest addition.Iíll return myself (fresh from cleaning a handful of new blocs and a two hour board session) to sitting on my couch.
and the rest is just an aesthetic Lakes problems/ hard ascents pr0no with a really fucking hard one toward the end.
Yeah that was a cool film. As an outsider to both Lakes bouldering and proper hard bouldering full stop I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. I agree with the comment (way) above about phone footage to the extent that itís great to see authentic uncut film of the actual ascents but in the case of the phone-in-shoe style clips earlier in the film, when youíre watching someone path a problem that you canít gauge the angle or the size of the holds of properly and donít have prior knowledge of it then it might as well be 6b+ as 8b+. I got a lot more idea of what I was really watching from the ascents where the camera was moving.
Another one that slipped under the radar. FA of 'Ebbing the Flow' at Biblins cave https://www.instagram.com/p/CK9TXiBD47v/Not aware of a grade, but it was mooted as an ~8B project and given the amount of time James Squire has spent down there I imagine he's put some time in to it.
'kin hell. That was filmed over the last two years right..
