A thread for significant repeats - there are lots of unrepeated classics out there, e.g. Wonderland, Man Machine, that would deserve mention if repeated.

So to start:

Dave Mason repeats Spindle (8a).

Chris Rooney repeats Any Given Sunday (5+), Scalp.

Space Machine 7C - The Scalp - Dave Mason, Ricky Bell, John Howard

Anyone done Superbock?

Maybe it would be easier to write down a list of 7's and 8's and note the known ascentionists beside them?

Would make for interesting reading :)

When I get a chance latter in the week  I will draw up a list of the 7.5-8s and we can figure out what has been done.

Thanks Barry :-)

There is a new 7c in Glendalough, The Lone Ranger. I put it up during the summer. Its a big long roof crack just up from big jane. Would be great if people went out to give it a go, Its a stunning line!
