So good! News of the year!

Given how quickly he's done it surely can't be more than 9a+?  :fishing:

He did it in two halves on Thursday. Wasn’t there today but apparently it looked effortless - chalk and blow

I've heard of this project over the years, but for those of us that aren't peak lime officianados, could someone give some cobtext/pictures/stories as to why this is so significant?

Prepare to be underwhelmed  :lol:



It's number 26 on this topo. Basically a direct start to Make It Funky 8c (number 27 on the topo). It's famous because it's at Raven Tor, it's really hard and it's been tried by lots of wads over the years. Most notably Gaskins had some really good burns on it but was never quite able to seal the deal.

Please tell me it finishes up 30 and then 18 and goes to the top of the crag?

Any indication as to whether it will still be called Brandenburg Gate? Surely as the first ascentionist Will now has the right to call it what he wants.

Guess we'll find out when the news exclusively breaks in about three days

30 is Mecca Extension which weighs in at a techy ~8a from the chains. No idea what Will actually did but I can imagine he stopped at the chains unless he'd pre-planned to do the extension, would be a pain to drop the top having done the bottom (unless you were going for some sort of Ben Moon style 'drop it then do it' Hubble throwback tick).

What's 28 on the topo? That looks like the straightest line to finish 26!
