Well done Andrew!!, what a fine achievement!!!

i agree with Warren, some photos would be really cool!

The photo on the homepage is of Andrew on Rodan, Aug 2010
You haven't heard of it yet because it's been Andrew's closed project for a couple of months. He's now redpointed it, expect to hear a proposed grade soon.
Nice one! :salut:

I've belayed him on Rodan for about 25 days... Belaying him today was a special experience. After 40 days of effort, it finally went down, and beautifully styled too. 34 will be the grade and there will never be a downgrade... Congratulations Andrew
I hate this real world place... I'd be more than happy to live out there rather...
