Oh no. Does that predate Burden? If so can we just pretend it doesn’t exist so at least the first Font 9 is something cool!

Terranova predates burden by quite a bit: Adam did Terranova in 2011 and Nalle did Burden in 2016. Given the time and effort he's put in to Terranova, and it's seemingly in a style that suits him, I wouldn't be surprised if he suggests an upgrade.

The comments to https://www.instagram.com/p/C2Xf6BpreZ5/ has some verry funny content. You'd think that some of the commenters actually had done Sleepwalker themselves and are personally harmed because of the suggested downgrade :D

Better stop Mr. Pelorson at the border is my advice.

That surrealistic rant had most likes of all comments! I'm sorely tempted to rot my brain by going to reddit and check the most upvoted comments.

He replies with some emojis to someone asking the question essentially... Take a look!

Some asked if sleepwalker is 8C and Nova is 8C, does that make terranova 9A? Bosi replied with the wide eyed emoji. 👀

Make of that what you will . . .

No Instagram account, so can't do that  :shrug:

Would not be a surprise if he does suggest an upgrade (if he ever does it). He's taken many opportunities to do everything short of actually saying it. Excited to see the fallout - this is already nicely entertaining  :lol:

This is amazing, some very entertaining comments "woke up and chose violence". I wonder if Lorenzi has the wing span for this, or is going to struggle like Schubert did?

Hayato Furusugi (https://www.instagram.com/hayato_furusugi/) mentioned in the comments that another ascensionist has "unofficially" said that it felt more like 8B+-8C. Wonder who that was & whether they will say anything.

That's what we're doing with the 9a+s which predated Biographie, so why not?

Just confirms what we already know: real, hard climbing is grinding away on some disgusting polished limestone hovel. Everything else is just fun.

The 9’s could have been Action Directe and Burden, now we are going to left with a 4 bolt non line at the Tor and an eliminate trav on the Moravian Karst 😭😭

Is instagram like Twitter for climbers now or something? I’d be terrified to tentative suggest a personal/down-grade now. Didn’t Brooke get accused of misogyny after Box Therapy?

Same as anything really, it's mostly sensible people with a handful of jeb ends in the mix who get a disproportionate amount of attention.

Webb seems to get into the slot ok towards the end of this. Perhaps it's more of a height thing? It's also pretty funny how much Bosi looks like he's barely trying on his attempt compared to this (day 2 vs day 11). Next level.

It's interesting that they claimed that Sleepwalker was America's ahrdest boulder. Hypnotised minds has always looked way harder to me.

Quote from: drewruana
…. Same thing as normal, different body types will have a different experience. I have a -1 reach which means I had to do a few extra hard adjustments to reach the slot crimp, and I couldn’t pinch the top hold since my hands didn’t span. It felt 16 for me compared to other climbs but also it doesn’t mean it’s 16 for everyone, as seen by wills post. Doesn’t mean any of us are right or wrong the grade just gives a relative experience on it

I mostly climb with someone who’s almost a foot taller than me and it’s kinda hilarious how different things feel for us, we mostly just laugh at grades because they’re obviously pretty personal and meaningless outside of that personal experience.

Sure they’re a vague guide to the difficulty but they’re never 100% spot on. Look at West Side Story, basically harder than most of the peak 7Cs especially if you’re shorter :lol:

Which are these 7Cs that are easier than West Side, please?
