Burl-fest indeed. Love the name too!
Looks rad and the name is great, too. I also like the combination of a boulder problem, a subsequent "gear up break" and then a burly 8b+ trad climb. Visionary stuff...
That looks awesome. I look forward to the film.
I like the fact that a boulder problem combined with a trad route gets a sport grade. :-)
It's just a grade. Plenty of trad routes are graded with French grades all around the world.
Wasn't Grenspit originally a sport route, then Didier Bertholt (?)did it as a trad route?
Is this all part of the winding up of stevie haston? bloody great troll if so! ;)
Great effort Tom
Not really, Fred Rouhling did that with Akira (which is _still_ unrepeated!)
i imagine his hands hate him !
like 'i must have really bad karma to be reincarnated on this guys arms'
