11-year-old Josh Ibbertson wants to climb 11 8as before he turns 12. He's already ticked five, including the classic Raindogs at Malham Cove; now he's ticked his first 8a+ while on half-term holiday in Frankenjura, Germany. Lots of climbers feel the route is stiff and more like an 8b, but Josh didn't think it was that hard and commented that 8a+ was fair! We asked Josh a few questions to find out how he got so strong, and what his next ambitions are.
