The way he climbs the 'mere 9a' is absolutely extraordinary. Is there really anybody else in the world who can climb quite like this?

In reply to UKC News: after the last 9a+ he was 'a little pumped' ?!

That route makes the Quarryman look like a sane undertaking!

By climbing 9b+
Is she the same one as in the "Change" video?

Forget it. However little beer you drunk, you'd never get her to belay you.

Great video.
The section around 12.00-14.00 is some of the most awesome climbing I've ever seen; he's so fluid and precise.

I love his feeble attempt at modesty: "No, I got a little pumped..."

Stunning climbing, I'm looking forward to the Change vid.
