Yes, brilliant. I've always thought this looked a magnificent line. Shame it's so hard - not to mention the impossible bridging at the top. I feel inspired to do a pull up. No, make that two.

Robbie Philips' blog has a load of entries in it from when they did this a few months back. Good video, definitely a route to inspire you to try harder!

Presumably just the two of them from the UK, I don't know.

Unless the climbers themselves are particularly keen to report it I guess it's just not big news - based on their 8a.nu profiles it's just another 8b+ ticked, albeit an awesomely positioned one...

Her grunting reminds me of Maria Sharapova playing tennis.

Hahaha, shame UKC has no "like" button!


Amazing video. oftentimes hard sport routes don't take so much of a "line", it's more of a "avoid the easier holds 1 meter over". This route looks outstanding though, really well defined line and rock beautiful enough to bring tears to the eye, I'd definitely add it to my wish list!
