Perhaps he could put up a problem around the roof in Passport to Insanity? would need a pretty thick crash mat though.

the passport roof would only be 6 meters at the most...only a sixth the size of the rave cave...totally
insignificant in comparison. But yep...it doesnt have a pretty bad landing....50m onto sharp rocks...I
would be quite impressed to see someone bouldering that one out.

Welcome to Barbados? but again, not bouldering...

This is all off topic though, super effort & super smooth climbing!

Just watched the vid...very, very good send. The bit where he unwinds out of the last rest with 2 fingers onto the previous heel hold is beautiful. So dialed in that it looks easy. Congrats CW, thanks for the inspiration.

In length of potential route and size yes - but I know which I'd rather do :). Just clowning around anyway. The thing that strikes me is the build of this fella. He looks to be about 60kg soaking wet. The sort of chap who has trouble in the prison showers. The more you consider it the more you realise that most of the top climbers are wiry and with strength where it counts - in the tendons. Muscles don't count for as much as you think - dynamics perhaps and power - but endurance relies on a different type of strength.

for whoever it was that said it should have a route grade it does, its 9a+. this is apparently the grade given by dia, after being questioned about a boulder grade he then suggested v16. and no he didnt just then go home, as super saiyen mentioned he ticked krusti (essentially flashed since the last time he was on it was about 6 years ago). also tried mana (v13) on the sunday but came off the last hold, aswell as stimulation (also v13).

again well done chris, its awesome to have such an insipirational climber so close to home.
