Pretty cool, lots of strong guys have tried it. They all seem to complain about the slab, hah!

It said this was the first .14d by a canadian, is that true?

I though Sonnie Trotter's Forever Expired was .14d but I guess not?

It doesn't seem possible that this could be the first 5.14d climbed by a Canadian. I mean, Canadians suck and all, but they couldn't suck this bad. Hell, there are 12 year old Czech girls who climb this grade all day long.

Perhaps they meant it is the first 5.14d in Canada?

I've only heard it called 5.14; no letter.

Sonnie called it .14c, then some guys found some new feet first beta and called it .14b. There's some photos or video of will stanhope doing it feet first, pretty crazy.

I emailed deadpoint mag, and they told me that Forever Expired is rated .14d but unrepeated and unconfirmed, a 'grey line' so they're leaving the story as is.

Friends of mine saw a Japanese guy RP Cobra Crack a couple of weeks ago. Yuji Hrayama I believe. I wonder what he thinks?


They should call it the first ascent of a confirmed 14d by a Canadian then.

Let compare apple with apple.
Dreamcatcher = Sport climbing
Cobra = Trad climbing.

If you use the +/- system, instead of the decimals, then it's still a 5.14.

yuji said cobra felt like "a 9a sport route"
