Nice one Franco! great pic - brings tears to my eyes just looking those poor little pinkies!

An absolutely brilliant photo of what must surely be an historic ascent. Reminiscent of the iconic shot of the late Wolfgang Gullich on his campus board. Savour the commitment!

Thank you Pylon King. It's been a tough old battle and it's great to get nuguals of support from both people I know and don't know - thanks for restoring my faith in what I thought climbers were actually like! It's a great piece of rock, hope it gets some attempts.

Looked at your blog on and off and nice to see you got this done. Well done, looks fierce.

PS. Good pic too - although I prefer the one looking down from on high.

Don't think I've ever wanted a grade to be confirmed so badly! I hope you have a large box of eggs at the ready Franco!

Brilliant effort.

Think Andy Farnell should buy Franco a pint (if FRanco drinks) if the grade gets confirmed.

Very inspiring to see someone so young attempt and succeed at this.

Franco, have you got 'Psykovsky's Sequins' written on your helmet? If so, why?
The Green Giant - 13/Aug/13
I think we should call this kind of move "The Pinky Pull".....a very motivational photo....nice one Franco! :-D
P.S. I second the comment of Beastly Squirrel
