Alec Taylor has climbed a possible new link at Pantymwyn. Gasoline in Yer Face 7B starts by climbing the direct start to Gasoline then moving left into Grinning in Yer Face.

“I'd had a couple of goes on ‘Grinning in Yer Face’ and found that I could do it using a knee bar/scum which enabled the right hand to move up to a lovely grippy pinch on the lip, then left hand to go statically to the top. I was no where near using the described method of ‘go big’!”

Explained Alec, before adding:

“On the link once the knee bar is in it didn't make sense to move the right hand from the good ‘Gasoline’ crimp to the bad one, i.e. the start holds of ‘Grinning in Yer Face’. Grade wise I think around 7B ish for this method and certainly harder to campus it.”

Stop Press: It has come to light that Owen McShane climbed this link some time ago, as this film shows:
