Had a little bit of YYFY on Monday, got an impromptu afternoon out in the nice weather and did the first hard (for me) trad lead (Kirkus' Corner at Stanage) I've done after lots of injury / feeling crap. Bit of a surprise too - hadn't set out to do owt tricky, but just got the urge as I was walking past, so I did it.

Not a groundbreaking hardcore bit of climbing I know, but was happy to feel a touch of confidence and that my climbing ability is coming back.

After my NNFY from Tuesday i went out in better conditions this evening, and on my own. And dispatched. YYFY.
Its very satisfying going out on your own with one goal in mind and succeeding. Of course its on film, and will follow shortly...

Ha, well, factors out of my control. The crimp was always wet. Only actually had 3 sessions on it. And that includes today!

Here is the latest topo from March 08 which has everything in apart from Ironman (listed as a sit start project to Vitruvian) and Pacman. This updates the one before which was missing a lot of stuff, which might be the one you already have.

I missed a few moves off the start in the clip so it looks even less moves into Vitruvian. It is a class addition to the boulder.

Top One Andy!

I got in shortly after you mate and got Baboo today mate chuffed!! reckon its not soft 8a or at least if it is definately harder than two other soft 8a's i've done.  Very nearly got straightened as well. Definately harder start than baboo. Same awesome rest, not sure if it was having tried hard on baboo or just harder moves on strightened but managed to fall of just after the (baboo crux) when my fingers uncurled whilst i was trying to crush the hold. :) 

Cheers
Tim
(proper cold there today, really windy with a few sunny spells)

If I'm allowed a little YYFY...



....in a short session, most of which was spent trying to work out the best foothold



(this one - took me 4 or 5 goes after I found it)

Not bad for a fat weak injured trad punter (who was very chuffed with doing some mega-classic trad slab climbing over the weekend too).

Apologies for the fuzzy video and gaylord power screams, but not much of an apology as the latter were necessary :)

Nice one Fiend  :thumbsup:
