Waddage! So cool to see Aiden and Will pushing the standards in UK bouldering.

Wasn't there some talk of a project Aiden was trying at Badger Cove? Is this the same thing or a different line?

Yeah, Aidan is looking at something to the left of Honey Badger and to the right of Bewilderness. It's pretty wild but as it has been so dry, it seemed a good opportunity to clean up the cave section properly as it is a cool section of the crag. Fans of Thread Nicole... it has never been so dry so enjoy it whilst it lasts!

Is it a low right start that trends into bewilderness?

Is Thread Nicole decent or like going to Oliana/Santa Libya and doing the shite warm-up?

It looked good but was covered in loads of white fungus so we didnít bother pulling on, not sure if itís had a scrub recently by local wads whilst doing other stuff?

There is a vid of Ash doing it here

Just want to clarify that Libya is a typo and not some weird in-joke

Jim Pope did an alternative start to Thread Nicole on the same day Bosi did Honey Badger, so with the continued warm / dry weather I can only assume it'll be okay now.
