Nice work. Maybe someone should go around and have a look at Coracrazion?
Do you mean the Sylvester/Charlton route on Gruvetta? Has it ever been repeated?

Not sure i see the similarities to 17 days strapped to Cerro Kishtwar though!
holy shit, that's a good tick! Exciting ; )
John and Mark were very discreet, doing phenomenal things and not telling a soul, so it wouldn't surprise me if locals had never heard about it, let alone repeated it!
Awesome to see a rare repeat of the full line. Twight is right to criticize teams that claim a tick of a named technical route while avoiding the crux pitches.

Just in the style of the climbing and the quality of the ice, Will.
Definitely not the same speed (some days on CK we just did 1 pitch).
And not the same level of suffering. I've grown out of that ;-)
Then next day, the greek zulu boy sent it free as well.
