Dungeon Master 31 for Tyrril

Yesterday, Jarmila Tyrril sent Dungeon Master 31 at South Central, setting a new standard for female climbers at Nowra. This route has cost Jarmila dearly as she had a rope, quickdraws and chalk bag stolen from the base of the route last week. The rope is a green-flecked Sterling 9.4mm, quickdraws are Petzl Spirits and the chalk bag is a Beal. Keep an eye out for them. Source: nowrarocks.blogspot.com

8C's (B+) by Daniel Woods

Daniel Woods, the 8a ranking game leader for several, has done two amazing 8C's in Magic Wood, Practice of the Wild, "3rd ascent. Took 3 days of mental/physical warring. Psyched to do this majestic testpiece," and Ill Trill giving it a personal grade of 8B+, "Hard 3rd ascent. One of the best movement climbs I have done in a while. Spent 2 days this year on the line and one a few years ago. It felt like an 8A intro into an 8A+ stand." Under the radar, Mickey Page got the second ascent.

Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou sends her first V11 at age 47

Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou has sent her first V11 with Hard Boiled in Boulder Canyon, Colorado. It was the first V11 she has tried, and she quickly sent it, suggesting that the strangeness of the problem (an short overhang to a difficult slab) must contribute to it's high grade. The problem has been logged as 8A by all previous ascentionists. Nice job Robyn!
