Aye, it's the same line Aidan is trying here at 11:40. Pretty cool to see it get done!

Impressive effort, especially when you watch Aiden trying it.

I was thinking back to Brandenburg Gate when Will said why bother  continuing once the hard climbing stopped. That top out looks  :shit: :shit:

I'm just curious, but does anyone know if this is the first 8C in the peak?

Good question. Might have just been pipped to the post by this? https://climbing-history.org/climb/1948/raggamuffin Not sure exactly when Aidan did it.

There's also Belly of the Beast at raven tor which got 8C originally but I think it's considered easier now people do it with knees.

I think Belly Of The Beast is even considered 8B nowadays with the knees.

There are plenty of 8C problems in the maglime area like Serenata, The Last Anasazi, Bordello Sit etc. Although I'm not sure if that area is considered to be part of the peak? Id assume not.

Trance was before Ragamuffin.
