Came across a reference to these suits and have put my name down for one.

That insane offwidth roof up at Chalwell Galleries (Buffalo) of Glen Tempest's may yet see another ascent if this thing comes out! Cool!

I think you mean Rod Young (no wonder he took up sport climbing):

Cinderella 20m 25
May not have been repeated. Legend has it that the tape on Rodís hands for this ascent formed coverings the size of boxing gloves. On the cliff-line up the hill to the R (west) of the track when the Galleries are reached (move R off the track just before Le Figaro and Mars). The prominent off-width roof crack to the R of Mars. Rod Young December 1982

Sorry, Rod's route!!! Still incredible feat of strength and determination just getting up that thing...even aiding it would be hard!

Rumour has it he wore several jumpers so his body would wedge into the crack as well, probably several pairs of trousers as well. With string tied around the cuffs to contain any bodily excretions that may have been forced out.
