Remember reading once that Sharma said Mutation was impossible for him; accurate or apocryphal?


Did he say why?

Far too fat. Definitely a route for feathers.

Rainman will be repeated before Mutation in my (complete arse on armchair) opinion.

Arenít a few people close to Mutation? Pete & Will?

I think it was because he realised it would require putting some time in and the hour he'd already spent at Raven tor was more than enough.

Not Sure how close Bosi is or was, he gets to try very rarely, I do know he thought the crux was nails though, mutterings about harder than Practice of the Wild.

Pete hasn't done the boulder in one yet, how hard do you have to climb to get there? So not that close I guess that would mean, to be close surely you have to be on redpoint? He's a monster though and his drive to do something once it's on his radar is totally unrelenting.

Ah fair enough. I was chatting to someone at the wall whoíd said Pete was getting close. Be ace when it does get a repeat!

I think Im right in saying Will was getting to the crux pretty reliably but hasn't stuck it yet. He's done the boulder in isolation though. From memory you climb most of evolution to get to the boulder problem.

I believe the Sharma quote is "I will never climb this route". Open to interpretation.

Does this mean that it's an enormous sandbag, probably closer to hard 9a+ than 9a?

Grimness is in the eye of the beholder
