Commitment is the one word to sum up Greg and his approach to climbing...inspiring might be the other!

"climbed the world’s first grade XII, 'Banana Wall"

Anubis in winter by Dave Mac was the first Scottish grade XII

Given that neither have been repeated, it's a bit of a pointless ( though entirely in the keeping of UKC ) argument. Maybe if Dave repeats Banana Wall this Winter we'll have a definitive answer...

What would you grade the route as? Dave MacLeod mentioned that it was harder than the XI’s he has done.

That's a very hard question and of course I have done some hard routes but not as many as Dave or Greg (Boswell). I did The Hurting almost onsight and I fell off three times on Anubis. Yes, probably a bit harder. It is also very hard to compare it. The majority of routes I have done are not really steep, but Anubis is very physical. I don’t know exactly. The conditions are almost never the same. But yes, I can certainly say that I had to fight for Anubis!
