Congrats James! The send has quickly achieved world press, and amusing to see bugger all comments here at the local source after a day.

... and one of those from an aid climber who almost never boulders!

Are the bouldering fraternity quiet due to tall poppy envy?

Mindblowingily inspirational. James cruises it on that video! Is this a first ascent - if not, who did it first?

Nah, Dai did the FA just prior to doing the FA of the wheel of life (V16), which links the whole cave. Chris Webb also repeated not long before sending the wheel... I hope that means that James isnt far off the send :) Just gota link extreeme cool into that, easy as bro :)

Awesome work James!! Inspiring to say the least..... The way he moves on the rock you'd think it was his 100th try at it... Very smooth and solid...

Congrats.. Keep the video's coming!!

V16 ?? next ? ; )

Cheers
Chris.

Absolutely awesome climbing. The smoothest I've seen since that video of Chris doing the Wheel. Notice how his hands never bump or readjust on the holds? He makes each move with total precision and uses the momentum of each move to help execute the next. Fab!

Provided you can block out the infantile Chris Sharma fanbois...

BTW congrats James - can't wait to see the send of Wheel of Life (assuming saying that doesn't jinx things)!

yes, the thread has now been turned into a boulder vs route "discussion". too funny.

How about rather than give it a grade in any format it is just described as: "Really bloody hard for a long time and rarely repeated despite lots of crushers pulling on". Then show the video of Mr Kassay floating it.

Haha, some of those comments are hilarious 'I'm downgrading that climb, because there is no way anyone hang and rest at that grade'
Go and tick it yourself biaaatch.

Pretty Amazing stuff James!
