As for Tyler's comment on the pocket, i really cannot see how this pocket can be of a dangerous nature for a climber of his caliber- the hold is positive, not sharp and fairly deep allowing at least 2 fingers to be used.  I believe there really is nothing to worry about when attempting this problem.


This is not a dig whatsoever. Just merely stating that as a hard problem, this contains good positive holds that would be unlikely to injure a world class climber, especially in comparison to alot of other problems in this grade range

If it's not muthafukkin obvious to y'all, its worth stating that Tyler is 15 and still growing. It doesn't need another 'world class' climber to work out that its probably a good idea for him to look after them, especially as he doesn't appear to be about to give up climbing and take up boxing.

you all sound like a bunch of ladies disputing over the best tea cakes. :kiss2:
if you don't like the grade reclimb it and regrade it. if you think it should start further back do it and rename it and grade it. ohhh so simple ;D

Just like to take this opertunity to say why all this agro.

We all are different, have differnt views, opinions, grade veiws etc.

What really matters here is that someone has climbed a fantastic line, a line which had been done from standing now has a logical SS.

I hoped by now all would have learnt that you can not put context into these forums and some of us do take them to heart. But please we all do this sport(used lightly) because we love it not for the money and glory (although money does help) so why not get on together and learn from what has happened now and previously.

If your reading this James hope all is going well in the states mate. See ya when you get back

I saw a video about this last night, he has gone to dubai to hold up a 320 storey apartment block as they can't get foundation piles strong enough.

he nearly flashed one, which we both suggested 8a+ for, very long thing.  did it a day or so later.  He also did an other one called clear blue sky in a couple of sessions.  He did an 8a+ called no more greener grasses.  Hopefully he has done something else in the last three days since i left him to go to joes for a few days.  Bit rainy but have done a few classics like resident evil and freak, nothing to exciting.

he got close on freaks on his first session in amazing conditions but failed to get back here in a few more sessions.  he will do if it cools down.  Both had five sessions on freshly squeezed but as yet no success, seems hard. maybe that one is 8b????? he also got close on this thing in eldo called suspensions of disbelief stand up 8a+ but the top was a bit damp.

see ya hueco.

I might add, that he should have probably done more if conditions had not been so harsh ( and he learned to finish things a bit quicker after he gets close to them)

Daniel Woods did 2nd ascent, Paul Robinson 3rd, so maybe 4th?
