Is the news the ascents, the video or the interview?

Either way, top video. 1cm long bolts! I would have put a hat on for them I reckon.
In reply to ablackett:

You aren't missing anything

I will re-edit a bit, although the video remains the same.

In reply to UKC News: Amazing! Pete is a really impressive climber, and maybe quite modest in his grading. I remember watching the video of him on Dynamics of Change and thinking there are not many other people who could do that.

Nice interview, perhaps not as incisive as the interview with Adam Ondra after doing some 9as, but it's a close second.
