Does anybody know the name/grade of the shiny new route just left of Penny Royal Tee at the Superbowl in Boven? Oh and in case it's still a project - don't worry I didn't get onto it :wink:

Yeah, the route was bolted by one of the PTA guys in December. I'm pretty sure he opened it then too.

Called "Almost my Balls!"
Apparently Barry lost control of the drill around his general groin area and the bit gripped his pants wrapped them up tight and gave him a bit of a squeeze :shock:
Similar grade to PRT.

On another note, Greg Borman opened two new routes at God No! wall this weekend, just to the right of Alice in Granny Land. The first one "Bittergal" (I think that's what he named it) goes at 21 and is about 23m long, the next one along "Brollocks" comes in at 18 and is really, really good (also about 25m long and needs 14D).
Two good moderates at the God No!

Good job Greg. :thumleft:

Brollocks is 19.

Maybe I am just getting old? :oops:

Gregs new routes are very cool. Nice and long, I think they are some of the best easier routes around. Its almost time to create an updated topo for the God No! There are so many new routes there that a nice photo topo would make a cool pdf - what say all? Maybe Mark M will open his projects in time to be included!
