Exciting news for bouldering community in Ireland. Last Thursday (25th Feb ’16) two mega routes and one of Ireland’s hardest problems, Soul Revolution 8b+ and Wonderland 8b finally got their second repeats by the one and only David Fitzgerald (22). It is worthwhile to mention that the two projects were sent on the same day, which is a massive undertaking for anyone, even Daniel Woods.  With such a good start of the season 2016 looks very promising for David and surely he will surprise us with big numbers again. In the meantime we are waiting for the footage.

Almost three years to the day, Michael Duffy established Soul Revolution (8B+) in Glenmalure. Today, I managed to make the second ascent, a memory that will always stay with me. Then, later that afternoon, I somehow managed to make the second ascent of Wonderland (8B) in Glendalough. I have no words to describe how I am feeling right now. Here’s a short clip showing some of my attempts from previous days – David Fitzgerald.
