Wild Youth

Pete Robins joined in on the link up mayhem down LPT today by climbing the obvious lefthand start to Youthanasia (i.e. starting up Wild Understatement) today. No one seems to know if Youthanasia itself has been repeated. The main candidate is Neil Carson as his route Infanticide joins Youthanasia at the top. The climbing on Youthanasia is very technical with much effort and moves put in without much upwards progress. It is also not very steep territory for the grade. Pete said the strange climbing meant it is hard to grade it but it felt like probable 8b+ for effort. It took him about 5 sessions to work it out and redpoint it. Most 8bs he has done on his holidays have been done quicksharp. He also said the upper moves were some of the best on the crag! Nice work bud!
