Awesome achievement but...you only list 149 routes!
249 e-points in a day (surely 250 if you can find his 150th tick) is that also a record?
I think I've seen through it though... was it all an elaborate ukc troll to include TPS on a list of '150 extremes'? If so, he's certainly raised the bar pretty high!
I thought FBD would get the first comment!
And Flying Buttress Direct/Namenlos (*stirs pot) - cracking achievement, regardless of your opinion on the grades.
Well spotted! I am investigating the missing route now - thanks.
Very very impressive.
I'd hate to climb anything on grit in this heat, blinding effort.
Shit the bed.
Have you got a lot of time on your hands.......
Brilliant effort and a mighty impressive list,
Found the missing route, Captain Sensible, E1 5b at Burbage South.
>"Starting at Curbar at 4am"
What was wrong with Baslow at 3am?
See link for a photo of Right Elliminate.
I witnessed and photographed the whole event and I can tell you it was an incredible effort
Pete is having us off here - He is really a robot cyborg machine kinda thing he ain't no human!!! ;)
Shizzzer what an effort :)
Think I would get tired reading about 150 extremes !
"I think the most enjoyable route of the whole day was Regent Street, I felt nicely warmed up ..."
So it takes Pete sixty one routes to warm up?? :-)
I hope Ron bought him a pint in the Scotsman's after all that!
but what can he do on grit....oh about 150 routes in a day.
I'll get my coat.
But what can he do on the Slate?
