John Gaskins' Kaizen, 8B+, on Tom's Buttress, at Woodwell, has been repeated. Or so it would seem, as it's still very much unconfirmed: "fairly significant me thinks.. a certain Blackpooler has repeated Kaizan[sic].. the proper way! effort! 14 v points there!" The "certain Blackpooler" the quote is referring to... who is he? At first I thought about Sam Whittaker, but he's from Sheffield, no?
I'm sure we'll hear more about this soon enough.
