"The other day I completed a new 8b+/c at Steall. 'Irn Age' climbs pretty much all of The Fat Groove (8a) to the roofed groove and then pulls right to climb pretty much all of Maxwell's Demon (8b+). Although it has two no-hands rests on it low down, it's still a good test of stamina and a mega trip up the crag with a tough finale. I certainly felt I needed to be quite fresh for the crux of Maxwell's Demon which is right up near the last bolt after 35 metres of climbing."
