Evolution 8c+ by Ben Moon 52

In 1990, Ben Moon made the FA of Hubble at Ravens Tor as the world's first 8c+. Today many think it should be upgraded to 9a. Three years ago he repeated Rainshadow 9a and now he once again show the uniqueness in climbing in regards age and performance by doing Evolution 8c+ at Ravens Tor. "It’s a great end to the year for me which has been one of the best of the past 35 years climbing."

Super psyched to final redpoint this really hard Jerry Moffatt test piece from the 90s at my local crag Ravens Tor. Only gets 8c+ but I don’t think there is a grade difference between this route and Rainshadow 9a. It’s a classic Ravens Tor route, only 10m long but basically sustained bouldering all the way. Probably hard Font 8a into hard route 8b with no rests and a heartbreak dyno to finish. It’s a great end to the year for me which has been one of the best of the past 35 years climbing. Racked up another 15 days on Northern Lights and although I didn’t quite make it came very close. Northern Lights is another level to routes like Evolution or Rainshadow and I’m sure one day will be recognised as 9a+. I feel in great shape for my age and looking forward to renewing my battle with this route again next year. Still learning about climbing and training even after all these years and most importantly still enjoying myself. Didn’t get a video of the whole ascent today but got the important bit! #trainhardclimbharder #climbing #redpointing

Seb Bouin revisiting the classics in France, Ben Moon still active on historical routes, this is very good that climbing is still connected to it's roots. Thanks gentlemen
