Ned posted on insta, and said he'd had mutliple seasons on it.

No mention of grade, so maybe it took him multiple seasons to figure out a knacky 6C ;)

I'm more interested in your recent Superman ascent :strongbench: got any good shorty beta?

Oh a Micky P climbed 9a if routes are the only thing which flouts your boat.

Most of Mick P's stuff goes unrecorded and most of it news worthy. You on about the one in Flatanger last year?

Yeah The illusionist, legend.

So I guess in terms of Eliot's ascent the link would be any of his social media or just me posting further up this thread.

Here is a vid, one of my fave vids going.



Aidan hasn't posted and is generally lax on social media and tbh is from Dan's school of thinking regards spraying. Perhaps cause of the reception half the hard shit gets online, i.e not much. But that was me letting people know (probably against his wishes) that he climbed something nails in a session after doing other hard shit on that boulder.

This forum is mad, loads of equally or more significant shit out there imo.

Nobody blinked when Eliot did 'from dirt' a certified 8C boulder.

Anyway bits that I reckon are more significant just off the top of my head and recent.

Aidan did Shallow Groove at Trowbarrow a couple days ago, 2nd ascent after Ryan, probably 8B+ and in a session.

Varian did Bombadil which I've heard would definitely not be out of place at 8C and blogged about it before anyone say's it didn't get mentioned.

Ned put probably the hardest problem on grit up this week.

8B+ boulder is miles more significant than a 8c+ route in my eyes.

I would agree they are significant and interesting ascents - please post them if no one else does!  :)Photo or video links are good too.

Perhaps 8c+ is not massively significant but I think this thread also covers "interesting harder ascents" and thought that a repeat of Kaabah would be of interest to some on here. Apologies if this is not the case!

There seems to be a lot of litter in the Peak at the moment, so itís worth taking a bag or two out. Mainly disposable BBQs and beer cans.

Thereís also quite a lot of BBQ gear, gas bottles, windbreaks scattered about the carparks with campervanners. Had my eye on a nice thick bit of foam that would make a good sit start pad, but the owner had moved it back into their vehicle by the time I got back from my walk.

Thanks for the listing... Any links / photo links are really useful to. Some people use this thread as a, ummm significant ascent news feed....

Nobody is in charge of this topic, people just post up what theyíve seen, if itís not on here, itís not because people are ignoring it! If everyone who sees something they think is worthy posts it here at the time, it would be a lot more comprehensive.

I think the Scarpa blog series about Bombadil elsewhere (FA not sig repeat) but the Aidan Trowbarrow things sound interesting, will have a look at his feed.

You are of course right, I should have waited a couple hours until the fanfare had started.

Aidan broke a hold on SG too, making it harder (or certainly for his partner on the day who isn't that shit) before he did it.
