UKC's news is more of a content aggregator than it is like, there are rumours of X, we contacted to confirm or deny etc

I think that's a bit harsh - IMO they are one of the better sites out there for fact checking and trying to get interviews / more info to add to the bones of the story.

Yeah agree, theyíve massively improved their news offerings in the past few years. Iím sure Rob G lurks on here looking for news nuggets, it seems this improvement on the site is thanks to his and his teamís work.

Was watching the recently uploaded video of some random steep hard things in some random euro place, and I just wanted to say that it is really rather exciting that we have not one, but two, multiple 9A boulderers come through in the recent couple of years, both inspiring climbers and one of them seems to have the biggest smile in climbing, and basically it's cool, people are pulling hard on small holds  :2thumbsup:

It'll be interesting to see where Will Bosi thinks Honey Badger and Terranova fit amongst these.

Aidan's got so much specific strength that it might hold Bosi back for a while! We'll see...

Terranova fits in a jaw crusher to turn it into a nice gravel for someoneís driveway! Seeing this is the Aidan thread, one of my favourite moments on the podcast was Lorenzi saying there was no way he was travelling to try Terranova because it looked so terrible.

This is where those formative years of climbing on grotty UK limestone pay dividends

Second comment: Shadowplay. Boom.  :slap:
This should form the basis of some sort of drinking game, along with 'what have they done on grit', 'is it as hard as Indian Face?', 'benchmark E0', etc

When Seb BerthŤ flashed Le Voyage the first comment was literally "what has he done on grit"

Smh

In true Aiden style I'm not sure if some or all of these have been reported? Maybe they were done when he was there doing new midnight thing don't know. Great vid though

I think Shurt means reported contemporaneously, as opposed to in a video published months (possibly over a year?) later. Considering that 8C is still perfectly newsworthy especially for a Brit, yet here's two which to my knowledge were completely unknown publicly till now. I don't think even Remus had these on climbing history until this vid!

Anyone able to give odds on whether BODs been done again. short odds on multiple incoming if the weather holds.

Aidan and Ryuichi have both dropped the last move recently, so looks likely!

Ryuichi on his 4th day of trying, twice as fast as he did sleepwalker stand, although he hasn't done it yet (unless he did it last month and hasn't said yet).
