On today's show we have some incredible footage for you of two of the most impressive kid crushers around, the Hörst brothers. Cameron and Jonathan have been in Germany's Frankenjura where they've come away with quite the tick list. Both have flashed routes up to 8a+/5.13c with Cameron clipping the chains on his hardest 8c/5.14b to date and Jonathan ticking three 8b/5.13d's in quick succession. Not too shabby given that both boys are still under 15 years old! As well as American action in the Frankenjura, there's also been a lot going on in the British trad scene. Over in Northern Ireland, Pete Whittaker has made an onsight ascent of 'The Complete Scream' (E7/8). Notoriously run out, the route is only protectable by skyhooks and a solitary nut placement. Having failed to locate the nut slot on lead, Pete was left with the skyhooks which he reportedly secured in place with a mix of Blu-tack and gaffa tape. Also in Northern Ireland, James McHaffie and Ryan Pasquill both made a ground up ascent of John Dunne's 'Divided Years' (E8/9) at Buzzard's Roost.
