On his third attempt Australian Ben Cossey eventually showed Careless Torque, E7 7a, at Stanage who’s boss.

His love-hate history with the wrath of Torque includes bloodied fellow boulderers and 8 falls the last move. The second try was pretty close but a lack of spotters impeded his near victory until Ben Bransby saved the day with some advice on the last move, after which Cossey never looked back.

Simba's Pride, E8 6c, at Burbage South and Bimbache Extrem 2007, Andalucia fall on his ‘conquered’ list.
