/ Will anyone ever repeat Echo Wall?
I would put my money on "yes", but not for a while.
You could have said similar about Longhope Route Direct. I'm hoping sooner rather than later.
I'd like to think that someone would at least throw a line down it and have a wee look at the moves. That's only the work of a day and Ben Nevis North face is not that hard to get to. Perhaps the Welsh brigade will mike a raid on the mountain crags later on in the summer when seepage and melting snow is less of a problem.
Will anyone ever repeat Echo Wall?
Yes. given that we have eternity.
Not really. The crag will fall down before eternity is reached
Because the guy grading it has done a nut load of new routing at that kind of level and his routes are rarely (if ever?) downgraded.
I know I'm feeding the troll, but there we go.

Eternity is never reached. It will be team-soloed by a troupe of wildebeest wearing orange jump-suits while singing "God only Knows" by the Beach Boys before eternity is reached.

... or dry tooled, I suppose... OK, OK, I'm going.
It's surprising just how quickly repeats can go down (compared to FAs) once someone capable turns their mind to it. But when will that happen? Who knows?
Does that mean you're going for the ground-up? I somehow always assumed you'd want to work it.
Mr PopShot. Why do you post using the words, language and intelligence of a 10 year old when your profile shows you are 26?
Have you been telling porkies about your age?
