Yeah, but what have the ever done on grit?
Surely Parthian's had more than six ascents?
Honneyman &/or DeGay?
That's only a list off the top of my head, so I imagine there must be a few more. Obviously if the uncertain ones haven't then it changes things a bit.

Gresham hasn't neither has Honneyman or Degay, and i don't think Ed Brown has either....
So, actual people who have done it.
Who have i forgot?
Fair enough, my mistake.
I misread the report as Ed Brown having done it too, but clearly I can't read properly...
I recall various antipodeans, sometimes after nightfall

Ahh yes indeed, your memory is better than mine!
Cossey to go on list
So, that it
Rich Heap ?
Whoa - I'm not sure. But I have vague recollection.
Sorry, deleted post, he only took the pic of Bentley... (My bad)
Didn't one of the co-owners of E9 climb it too?
No, but he came close. Nutter.

...15 close times I believe...it was amazing the only thing he broke was his wrist... nice chap though...
Congrats to Tom though on his ascent
Bravo Mr Briggs! One of the best ticks on grit?
