I'm staggered. Hazel deserves way more press than she's getting so far, though obviously interest is increasing.

Talking of fantastic young trad climbers, what's happened to Neil Dickson of late?

He's given up climbing and become a cage fighter...or was it a pole dancer?

In reply to UKC News: Fantastic effort from a talented climber. Just out of interest, how many UK E7/8's have F8a/8a+ climbing...?

Nice work. She looks totally composed as she pulls on a ring finger mono!

Requiem is an obvious one

In reply to TobyA:

I could be wrong, but I think I recall TomPR saying that the idea that requiem was 8a+ was basically nonsense.

Found it - http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=412846 looks like him and two others reckon 7c+ is nearer the mark.

Doesn't necessarily make it so, but it certainly casts doubt on it especially given his crack credentials...
In reply to AJM: Interesting. I was on holiday then so missed that thread. Perhaps it has just become one of those stories - "the UK first 8a was actually 8a+... and a crack... and on trad" and it seemed to a good a story to change. Sounds like none of the young guns had actually managed it yet though!

Not sure what tht Dave Birkett crack got on Scafell, Talbot Horizon or something ? might be e8 7a which I guess is close ?
