Yes indeed for adventure climbing.
And indeed also, that Edward frillyparts (thanx mikl) still exists as '.' in the user profiles, ...
... he even read a PM that I sent to '.' not long back to confirm it.
Momentus NEWS ...
I heard on the grapevine that Copperhead Road is graded M9 in the new Buffalo Guide.
If this is the case it is excellent news indeed, as it shows that the Ewbank open-ended grading system works well, ,,, this especially overdue for aid climbs in order to stop them becoming compressed in the top end.
As a mark of RESPECT and admiration for the route; Malcolm Matheson (HB), its 1st ascentionist (solo); and Kevin Lindorf for putting it out there (ie M9) in the new guide; I am now going to change my user ID to M9iswhereitsat (from M8iswhereitsat), so as to reflect this logical (& common sensical), step forward.
