Is it just my connection - that is the 2nd vid I have binned as it was so slow to load? The other was the Pedriza slab one.

Just yours I think Chris. Was fine for me. Try it again now... maybe it didn't like us both watching it at the same time...

Cheers - I paused it a bit to let it buffer and it ran fine. Big 'olds for an 8a!

That's what I thought. I've booked my flight...

That's the problem though isn't it Chris, if you're as good as them the holds always look big ;-)

I was wondering where the 8a crux was....that big reach at 45s perhaps? It looked very doable, but good climbers have a knack of making stuff look 'easy' enough for us mere mortals to give it a crack.
