I've heard from several sources that Rich Simpson did this yesterday. Fuckin amazing effort, inspirational stuff.
Should open the floodgates now as there are plenty of others around who are capable - get to it.

Fine effort! I'd heard rumour that he'd fallen off the top move ground up about a week back (glad I wasn't spotting!). Good effort going back up for more after that.

I think the inference on 8a.nu that Ron did CT ground up is incorrect.

Dunno, but someone told me 7c too. Think it depends on how tall you are.

7b+/7c sounds a lot more likely than 7a+. I'm sure if it were 'only' 7a+ it would of been done ground up before now.

Sterling effort that lad. The spoon was left in the dark a little reading his blog.
