SA climber all-time best score

Postby andrew p » Sun Nov 18, 2007 6:33 pm

Just thought Clintons current score of 10620 on 8a.nu is worth a mention. This is the highest an SA climber has ever acheived. Clinton ranks 198 in the world, out of 4000+ climbers. He has sent 2 routes of 8b+ (33) and harder in the last two weeks alone. Anyway, well done Clinton (aka Clingon). Where's the competition at!?!

Some silly buggers have two profiles, but here's the real deal

http://www.8a.nu/site2/?country=GLOBAL&IncPage=http://web.8a.nu/php/site2/rankings_all_time.php?country=ZAF

10620 as a best of 12 months 8a score is pretty impressive!! It's kinda tough to work out if anyone has done that before...

Some impressive sends lately from the 'Clingtonator' :shock:

I see the highest was actually 10845 by you Paul in 2001. I am talking all time best annual score, not all time all time score. So, clints best of 10620 is 225 behind. Where are you nowadays Paul?

While we're on the subject of top-listed South African's, who is this Charlie Brendsen chap (top all time SA boulderer). I think this came up in a prev thread but don't think it was resolved.

It appears he does most of his bouldering in Bishop (he lists sit start to the Mandala (V14) on his ticklist). I don't see any South African problems on his list.

Was he born in SA? Wouldn't mind meeting him if he's a South African and still lives near Bishop

Hi Paul,

I will be in Thailand for Feb, at Krabi/Railay. Can you give me a few must do ticks in the 7c to 8a+ range. Will you be there?

Cheers

Andrew

The hardest thing I've tried was some 7c over near the bar. Was fun, dunno what its called. Oh wait and Phet Maak - 7c+. Also good. The routes alongside also look good. The Thaiwand is great. Some very cool single pitch routes from 6b up. Do Equatorial and Orange Juice. And super multi-pitch routes. Another stunning area unvisted much is the Low tide wall. The routes might be a little dirty, although in high season they should be clean. A beautiful location -- isolated private beach! The Multi-pitch there is good as is the 7b, forget the name. The Keep is also less visted. Good views, vertical moderate climbing. Fun fun.

I might be around, but will still be working. Me mate just quit to spend the rest of his time on Railay, so there is at least one person without a climbing partner...
