65msq  (11.5m x 5.6m x 4.5m high)

20, 30, 45 and Barrel shaped boards

Campus Board, 2 Fingerboards (incl. Beastmaker 2000)

..this was irish climbing on the internet


i havent done this (yet!) but i have heard 7A+ mooted, which doesnt sound far fetched to me, especially with the low right foot hold which has become(!) quite good. A fair few folks have now done it so what are these people's thoughts on the grade? i am trying to knock together a little glendo vid between nappy changes (no, not mine) and want to get the grade right.
