Ted Kingsnorth has redpointed his long-term, long-distance project Just Do It 8c+ on the Monkey Face at Smith Rock, Oregon. First climbed by Frenchman Jean-Baptiste 'Jibé' Tribout in 1992, it was unequivocally the hardest route in the US at the time.

Have a like Ted, great job lad.

Have been a distant admirer of yours for some time now.

Not like you to spray profanities though young chap!

Still, cheers, really enjoyed that,

Andy.

Just goes to show how good Tribout was 26 years ago.

Great effort Ted. Very pleased to hear that all of your hard work has paid off. North Buttress is awaiting your return and I have never seen it drier!

Well done Ted.  8c+ in the US is a long way from those MUMC trips to the peak 20 years ago.

Thanks all, its a mega line and worth every bit of the effort and expense. Yes Jibe was a real trail blazer back in the 80's and early 90's and his exploits are still talked about in the Park even today. Climbing these routes in the relatively primitive climbing shoes they had back then was really something else.

I find it's more my primitive fingers that hold me back
