Kevin Jorgeson has made the 2nd ascent of James Pearson´s The Groove, at Cratcliff. Originally given E10 7b, James has, in hindsight, suggested it might very well be E11. What Kevin thinks of the grade is not known at this time, but what I do know is that it´s a fantastic achievement. James comments that it´s an „awesome effort and nice to see it getting the attention it deserves.“What E11 7b means in French is difficult to say, but the 7b for the hardest move suggests it´s very hard indeed, probably in the 8c or above range. But until Kevin has said anything about the grade, this is pure speculation.//BP
