Will's added the hardest boulder to date to the Tor with The Wild South. He's given it 8C but also said "Probably my longest boulder project spanning many years and countless sessions could be 8C+".

Takes many years and countless sessions, on great form and then gives it 8C, with maybe a +?

8C but you need to be able to climb Burden of Dreams in 2 weeks to do it.

Shades of "8B+ if you have 8C finger strength" from Aidan  :lol:

Tbf I think he was trying quite a different sequence for a long time (something about an 8C single move!) and recently discovered the knee which makes it a lot easier.

Thought he was going to downclimb it for a while there  ::)
Think there's a bit in the Jamcrack podcast about the knee. Good episode though.

Looks like he used the heel thag I believe aidan discounted and others had been trying? Good effort Will!

Wonder if he will get on much else whilst in Wales, probs getting too warm for it, but would be cool to see das pumpenhaus get a 2nd ascent.

He's a wizard ! Good effort.

Actually it's quite breezy and a bit cooler today, here in N.Wales.

I found it highly entertaining that Bosi's 9A project trip diet is steak, sweet potato wedges and chocolate biscuits. Can we get Dave Mac to live on that for a month?

His Jam Crack podcast revealed a similarly non-D.Mac approved lifestyle.  IIRC, he mainly lives on oatcakes and Parmesan, with the odd deep-fried carb treat. Either the best diet is an n=1 concept that resists prescription, or he would be climbing F9B if he could buckle-down to a pure meat pattie regimen!

It's just called being in your 20s. It matters what your put in your body over many decades. Read a story on continuous glucose monitoring today.. impact of various foods on blood sugar spikes etc etc.. my mind wandered to a thread on here years ago in which JB and Stu L mentioned how a crag diet of (iirc) haribos and coke never did them any harm.

We've all done it haven't we. I shudder at the thought of how much Coca Cola I used to drink when I was in my teens, and how many energy drinks I had after that!

Does seem a little odd that he's not improved his diet yet given he's trying to perform at the absolute highest level of the sport.

Hopefully he’s being advised to enjoy it whilst he can! I miss the days where a whole cheesecake was just a standard snack…

Video was good, but theres so much more background which would have been cool to see (the replica, alternative betas which were tried, the livestreams etc).

I know it’s all in other content, but bringing it all together would have been nice.

Is it that odd given that he is performing at the absolute highest level of the sport?

Nice video. Very chill. Made me miss the north. Everything looked like home. The apartment building, the taiga, the granite.

Nice little film.  And not a deck of cards/dice in sight.   Would have been funny if there was a little 'easter egg' pack of cards, or even better, some furry dice on the rear view mirror  :lol:.
