He is locked into a pattern: e8, e7, e8, e7, so sure to be more soon!

We've got some great pics of these routes, look out for them in Climb and Climber over the next few issues, plus a funky shot of loaded at ilkley in next months Climb.

In reply to UKC News: Nice one Jordan! I filmed Hock on the Keswickian a few months ago, such a cool line. Great to see someones got the guns to get on it so quick.

How was the rope drag?

So surely Bransby's Skin and Wishbones E8 should be next...?

I was going to blog about this on the day, but totally forgot and then got sidetracked. Flashing E7 is perfectly normal behaviour these days!

I know Messenger is keeping his pics close to his chest (they're very good) but I did get a fairly rubbish camera phone picture which I've put up: http://www.jr-climbing.co.uk

I hear there's an E8 in the North York Moors that has beaten off all attempts over the last 2 years...

I thought it might be a fake ascent at first given that it was very mild and rained a bit today. Good stuff - a really impressive spree and it's only November.

In reply to Steve Ramsden: previous post now redundant as Jordan's logbook is public again. Now you see it, now you don't, now you see it.....

In reply to UKC News: Quick repeat of hard looking wall at Hawkcliffe, which was put up a few days ago. Good work to FA and Jordan for such a quick repeat.

In reply to UKC News:
Great stuff Jordan, it's inspiring to see light work made of some of these testpieces, and in great style. It's very motivating to hear of someone at the UK's cutting edge in all three rock disciplines too, rather than just specialising in one.
I'm also impressed at how quickly you got round to repeating visions, and thanks for confirming the grade - I wasn't too sure what to give it as it's the first hard grit trad I've done for over ten years! Should see plenty of repeats that one as grit e7's don't get any safer. First full ascent of Charlie don't surf next?
