In reply to Bj÷rn Pohl - UKC: Doesn't Three Degrees of Separation have some absolutely enormous dyno(s) on it, and isn't Ramonet about three feet tall? 'Impressive' would be the word.

The original is broken at the chipped section apparently. Arnaud Petit said he thought it would still probably be possible the original way at ~8c+ but pretty nasty.

Does anyone know what "dos llensaments" means? (On Ramon's scorecard comment but the online translators don't know it.)

Looks like Catalan. 'dos llanšaments' in catalan is 'two throws' ('two goes' obviously)
Not sure if he's misspelled it or speaking another dialect.

That would be bloody impressive to repeat 3 degrees considering how short he is... A font 8A dyno that Adam Ondra couldn't do despite his height and that Sharma looks proper stretched on too! I think Ramon is strong enough to pull on the non existent holdsnin between anyway : P
