Aidan Roberts is crushing out in Rocklands sending Oliphants Down (Font 8b+) on his third attempt.

Aidan, definitely no stranger to hard bouldering, has seemingly settled into Rocklands very quickly having only just arrived.
Writing on his Instagram page Aidan says: “Today was my best day yet! An early start brought me to Oliphants Dawn 8b+, I knew this was a hard boulder and anticipated a few sessions. In hindsight I feel I should have given it a good flash burn, dropping the last hold on my 2nd try! Thankfully it went down 3rd try, psyched!”
Sending Oliphants Dawn third go however wasn’t enough for Aidan: “I then headed to The Coop and had a full day of climbing where I was able to do a bunch of 7’s along with Patience 8a, The Beaten Path 8a, The Buying Power 7c+. I then finished the day off with Night Visions 8a+, the hard crimpy thing to the right of this (8something) and Antidote 8b”!
Hmmm, looks like Aidan should have a great trip to Rocklands if his fourth climbing day is anything to go on!!
