And worth adding that includes a video.

Bejesus, strong climbers usually make hard things look easy, but that just looks beyond desperate! Can't decide if there is a baby in the background or that is just one very strange power squeal...

So good to see Ondra having to fight for a change.

I'm pretty sure the video wasn't there when I linked to it.
I'm a bit confused as it's clearly not a sit start and the Christian Core video also shows him doing it from a non sit start. Surely it should be called a low start or something.

Brilliant! I don't think I've ever felt inspired by a bouldering video before. And, like all the best videos, no gimmicks, just the climbing as it happened.
In reply to Björn Pohl - UKC:

Inspiring effort! I wonder whether the screams were mainly down to pain tolerance on those holds as they looked mightily sharp on Core's video.

I imagine Christian looks a bit more relaxed on his video as he had worked it for longer and it is very much in his filthy crimp style?

Amazing.
