kim said font 6c after initially saying 6b. i'd be cautious with those grades as he's very good at that kind of thing.

I really like the spotting team uniform. Did they have name badges on?

I think bouldering needs a professional approach like that from more people.

Do they change clothes each time someone has an attempt so as to signify the "designated climber"? Whatever I agree that it's to be applauded.

For those who haven't seen this on the Yellowslacks thread. 'Miles's Project' at Ravenstones, I get the impression it's an open project.

Certainly seems to fit the bill for this thread!
Saw this last week on a bike ride with my son, looks amazing. Has it been done yet?

Chalked line a mere E6ish thing I think, must go back and finish it.
But the blank arete to the right, climbed on the left hand side, look very hard indeed. Slightly 'worse than square cut', vertical, perfect hard quarried grit, with no edges to hold the barndoor and not much in the way of smears for the feet either. There is a hold to aim for at the top. With the rocky landing jigged about a bit, and a pile of pads it wouldn't be death but very high. E9 7a/b if possible? If only I could remember where it was... :whistle:

Some closer pics of The Warp Project if anyone needs it. Sheffside massive pull your skinny fingers out.











Landing might need a bit of "creativity"....good jug rail on the right to start, and then...... :-\
