Sounds interesting:

The 18th of februari some of the worlds best climbers will come to Klättercentret Telefonplan and have a go at the project. Alex Megos, Magnus Midtbø, Kajsa Rosén and Jakob Schubert are coming, plus a couple more.

Cross your fingers and save the date!

Impressive. My best was an 8a belay. Was really close to an 8b belay, but the numpty fell off the last move.

I like this topic!

I was once close to a 9a belay but sadly no cigar. My best was an 8b belay which was also a first ascent
