I'd be interested to know what his sporting background is - gymnastics, perhaps? There must have been a serious conditioning base for him to be getting up routes like that so fast.

Great effort Mat!

Impressive stuff indeed.

Wonder if he's looked at Gaskin's VNB? I think that would be the crown of short bouldery routes, even if it is in a grotty hole in the ground! Has it had a repeat?

My background is I swapped between weight training and downhill mountain biking. Happy to answer any questions that you might have

My question is, coming from the West Midlands, is your haircut deliberately or accidentally a homage to the Peaky Blinders? ;-)

Well done! In the video you make it look positively straightforward which is quite ridiculous when you look at the actual "holds".
