Stammina Band/Pump up the Power 8c+/9a for Richard Simpson

Rich Simpson whose just got back from his recent trip to the Frankenjura has repeated the Stammina Band/Pump up the Power combination at Ravens Tor (UK).

Here is what he had to say.

ďI did the Stamina Band/Pump up the Power link the other day which I had tried for a few days last year and obviously have done Stamina Band loads of times before.

Fresh from a 6 week sport climbing trip to the Frankenjura and it didnít feel too bad.
Iím not sure what grade it would be but I donít think 9a would be too far off the mark. I am sure if I came to it completely on sight and had to work it all out it would take quite some time and feel pretty horrendous but as it was it didnít feel much harder than Infinity in the Frankenjura which is a similar style 8c+ route. However, I have spent quite some time over the years on that particular bit of rock (8 days alone in 2001 on the Power band which was my first 7c).

John Gaskins gave it Font 8b/8b+ but a bouldering grade for a traverse is really not appropriate so lets say 8c+/9a.

I also did Stamina Band/Blueband/Powerband which is also a great training comboĒ
