Anyone knows who did the old project that was bolted by M van der Mescht here , what the grade is exactly and what the name is ?It was given away in the new WC crag guide as an open project .

Think Matt Bush did it in Dec 2006 and he graded it around 30. That's what I heard via the grapevine anyway :P

32 I think
There's no point being pessimistic, because it probably won't work

I heard Matt has been crushing in Montagu!
Apparently he did a couple of the projects at the Pipeline, for real?!
Can anyone list his recent sends...

It was made an open project in WC Crags with out Morne's consent. That would chip me off a tad. We spent 2 days bolting it.

Use it or lose it! You get over better climbers nabbing your proj's eventually!

Lovers lane...neat little crag but dodgey spot. Spend most of your time trying not slip on the banana peels (used condoms) - gross!

theme of the day: bolt whole crags not just routes!
