Seems to have completely slipped under the media radar, but Benjo smashed the Wheel of Life last week for the 5th ascent.
Top effort mate!!

Yes that is a top send. A personal downgrade to V14 aswell.

What a brave and humble guy!

Ha! I mean theres that first one that even your nanna uses but that one Ethan used is friggin stupid. Fairly leg length dependant. Would chop most of your knee off without a pad.
V14 for a pumper. V16 for a real hard man. I know. Im an expert on these things. Because I have totaly done it and all.

Still sure as sugar that he didnt use the bars. Its probably V12 with the bars its just Ethans soft. Anyways what does it matter?? Just words and a piece of rock. Ben Cossey did it. Its climbing news. I did a shitty V4 a week ago. Big news. Same accomplishment just no one cares.

Well at least there would be more climbing in it than the Ozymandias trip report.

The hardest move is probably V8. Just too many moves. Even Ammagamma has nearly too many moves. Wtf theres a caterpillar crawling up my screen! ah!

Apparently M9 also repeated it last week and felt the grade was allot easier than first thought.... He said it felt more like an aid climb than a boulder problem and gave the route the AID grade of A3.....

Apparently he used no knee bars in the ascent , no Hex's and only 4 CAMS + 2 dodgy sky hooks....

The ascent took around 4 hrs ;-)

Ahem, I think you mean the "send" took around 4 hrs ;-)

And I believe it was an onsite (sic).

Did he Mr Chris?
Why that also sounds like a remarkably swift 'asend' time (teeheehee, waving at you madly Mr kuu!), for him too, by all accounts.

This also means that Derek my M10 love, and I, have been pipped at the post by that hard aiding scoundrel* yet again, but I am a bit suspecting of your report Mr Chris, as us Aussie aiding fraternity are quite possessive of our home spun grading system, and it does not sound at all fair dinkum if Mr IdratherbeclimbingM9 has allegedly graded it as A3.
I must tell Derek that we are still in with a chance of garnering the much prized first aid asend!


(*No offence Mr M9, we say in a spirit of freindly rivalry, as all is fair amongst bretheren is it not?)

Ouch huh? Not to worry. If poor old Simey needs to pick on minors for kicks let it be. Its kinda like a 20 year old stealing candy from a 11 month old. What a nice man!

Oh and there was actually more climbing in the trip report.
