Can generally be found using reach and brute force to avoid employing technique, although I'm currently weak as a kitten and developing a fondness for balancy awkwardness. Despite having read the guidebook, watched the video on youtube and spent hours discussing beta on the route I'm still claiming the onsight as I'm almost certainly lost.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
People discuss climbing on this forum? Politics, quackery, pseudo-science and a why French sport grades are so much easier in France than in the UK. I am on a personal quest to spread the joy of the T grade, the greatest climbing innovation since the unbreakable wine glass.
