it seems you can get a lot of points for problems at The School

Hmm, wasnt aware you could claim points off indoor probs!?
Im gonna get myself down Longnor wall and tick off some E5's!!

effort stu, anyone know which method was used, original or tylers?

Good effort.
Just as an aside it seems you can get a lot of points for problems at The School http://www.8a.nu/site2/?IncPage=http%3A//web.8a.nu/%28tep5ug45h4k1gh55ay4i0q45%29/scorecard/AscentList.aspx%3FUserId%3D2766%26AscentType%3D1%26AscentClass%3D0%26AscentListTimeInterval%3D1%26AscentListViewType%3D0

and yes I do use 8a.nu to log the thing's I've done up the school... please don't take the ranking's too seriously...

Not dissin anyone.  Just seems odd that indoor problems count towards the ranking.  Could they not be recorded but not linked?
I take the whole of 8a.nu with a pinch of salt anyway.

Well done Stew. :great:

He used Tyler's new uber sequence, and a few power screams!

Do you really care? recently they just changed it so you can log it as a no score but as of yet I havent been arsed to change all of the entries. Jens, one of the guys from the site emailed me asking about the indoor probs with comments similar to yours & my answer to him was the same as to yours, I then gave a lengthy reply to scorn his "just an indoor problem" comment telling him the error of his ways and giving him a history lesson into the significance of the place and the problems, to which he replied asking for an article about the school.  ???
Don't take the rankings too seriously, it's just been the best log book system up until now, someone said theyve added the function a while ago to change it to just a log book (dobbin?), if it seriously bothers anyone I'll do this on request?

Anyway this is way  :off:

Again good effort by a strong guy, well deserved I'm sure... Were you trying it as well ned?

if anyone wants to pop round my cellar for an evening of notching up their 8a.nu scorecard then just holler.

Back on topic, nice one to whoever it was that repeated voyager. is this rapidly becoming the fastest/most repeated 8b in the peak?

my opinion use 8a for whatever you want...

but for info you don't have to change each send individually you can just put the whole think in log book via edit and then if people want to know what you're up to they just search for your name....

it's what I've done, got nothing to brag about so I just use it to keep track of stuff

and back on topic, props to Stu... effort.... :bow:

hasn't the ace had 5 ascents, thinkin aloud moffatt, smith, moon, landman, earl. Oh yeah it has. Voyager is hot on its heels with 4 though.

I've heard other people are close to getting Voyager done (names forgotten off the top of my head!) and that others are wanting to try it (by others I mean people who are likely to get it!)

you heard it here first. 'climbers' keen to try 'voyager'.

re: number of ascents etc, hasn't 8-ball had quite a few ascents?

No, I was stuck inside on saturday, got info from a reliable source though! Think it's too far beyond me to be honest.

what even with your new found ability to crimp properly? stop being so soft and get to it!
