Good effort sam !
I hope there'll be some recommendations for all of us punters out here - 8c is perhaps a touch hard for me to aspire to.
I'm afraid not. It's not that kind of article. It is a round-up of the most inspirational and hardest bouldering achievements from 2008.
We did the same last year, and we'll be doing Trad, Sport and others too.
We did recently run a Font article: http://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=1478
Hopefully you'll enjoy them all.
We'll also be updating our Font destination guide in to our new format soon: http://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=179
Cheers Jack, that article by Stow is pretty good, and I'm looking forward to reading about the most inspirational and hardest bouldering achievements from 2008. I had a couple myself, but I don't think they'll make the article.
