100% beef  :boxing:

Subtle beef? I didn't get that particularly. He disagrees with the grading machine but that's hardly beef  :-\

Forgive me, I was making a play out of the fact that Dave once ate nothing but beef for a month. He's a mild-mannered man, but it's clear from the video that he doesn't think much of the E(go)-grader and he wants to downgrade the world. I think I love him.

He is a man who loves beef. Eat, sleep, beef, repeat.

Isn't this just another case of pro climber first ascent grading perfected by Dunne: suggest large number, receive media attention, grade subsequently drifts down, job done.

Or perhaps he genuinely thought it was 'harder than E11'. It's ok to make a misteak.

A short film about the third ascent of a 13d 14a in Little Cottonwood Canyon. The climbing is decent but it's most notable for ukb readership for an interview with first ascentionist Jonny Woodward, still drinking tea and with only the faintest of twangs after more than 40 years in the USA.

Looking forward to watching this later. Getting to meet and spend a couple of hours climbing on the grit with Jonny sometime in the mid-90s was one of the highlights of my climbing life.

You did. A portrait of Maria Cranor, an amazing woman. Jonny was married to Maria for a a number years, though the film doesn't mention this.

Just re-discovered this which I must have seen before, definitely quality for anyone who has been to CH or read the guide or just likes outrageous-for-the-grade routes  :icon_321: <<< smiley is topical for the climb  ;D

I don't really understand why Seb makes such a big deal out of it being his "anti-style". It is an endurance route after all. It is not exactly Excalibur.

If I had a pound for every time someone claimed that something is their anti-style just because it doesn't quite fit... It's amazing how many people who like 40 degree boards on edges think that 40 degrees on pinches or shouldery moves is their anti-style, without wondering whether maybe they'd actually find a granite bridging groove or offwidth a little more "anti-style"...

My anti style is things that are hard

Easy stuff? No problem. Unless it's hard. Then I can't do it.
