Iím sure Iím revelations it says he did it in the winter of 2000. Donít know the date though

Just flicking through it now, apparently he spent most of the winter of 1999 on it, but did it the following winter (page 206). It also reads

"One of them, a climber called Stuart Littlefair, suggested a different sequence of foot moves... ...Two days later... ...I had done it."

So come on Stu, when did you unlock The Ace for Jerry??

Yeah, I dunno. Iím too old to remember that far back now

The drop box link from Stabsy (Si Pantonís one) says that Ben Moon had a different sequence - two days later it went down.

"I was intrigued to find out about an alternative sequence that Ben Moon had been trying"

Who do you think informed Jerry of Moon's new beets...? It's no coincidence that a certain someone has Jerry as his UKB avatar #TeamJerryForLife ;D

Outrageous slander.

Ben & Jerry had been trying it via a completely bizarre sequence going initially with the right hand. They couldn't do the first move. I'd been trying it without success using the now accepted beta, I couldn't do the last move.

One day, Jerry was there the same day I was trying it... Not sure where the idea that Ben had new beta came from - that's not how I remember it.

20-odd years later I've still not done it.  :slap:
