Jordan Buys climbes hairy highball

Greg Chapman's Lakesbloc reports Jordan Buys has made the much coveted first ascent of the "mighty groove project" at the Lad Stones, Tilberthwaite. Jordan cleaned the problem on an ab-rope and then climbed it ground up. He has named it Groove Armada , and offered highball 7c+ as an estimated grade. Although not super hard, I feel the status and the nasty landing really makes it worth reporting. The photo, from Lakesbloc, says a lot.
