// . Bit of talk about the grade. Interesting he hasn't said 9b, which makes me think he probably thinks its harder, but is waiting for consensus.

// Chris says: it is not the hardest route route I have redpointed, but certainly my hardest experience. It is a problem of resistencia (power endurance?) (I tried Capella one day. It is very hard: bouldery, not resistance.) If he downgrades it to 6c I might have a go. The video I found extraordinarily beautiful, the movement.
