The Smithy at work on the Anvil

Malcolm Smith has repeated Dave MacLeod's Bodyswerve, confirming the F8c grade. Malc frustrated other hopeful repeat ascensionists by breaking a tiny fragment of the crux hold to make the route just that little bit harder. Fresh from his send Malc got psyched for some of the Anvil's remaining hard projects. After a very quick worked session, all the moves came together on a bouldery line right of Shadowlands. The Smiddy was promptly dispatched to give Scotland another F8b+.

Update: Yet another project has fallen. In a couple of sessions Malcolm dispatched Black Out F8b, taking the shallow groove above Crossfire on some very small crimps.
