/ Lewis Hamilton - Rock climber?
David Lee Roth
He's gonna wreck that fancy watch jamming on the grit !!!
still.. im sure he could afford to replace it :X
Rock climber, or someone whose publicist has seen the value of the imagery? Doubt very much that his sponsors would allow him to get seriously involved in another risk sport.
He's only a true climber if he's got guidebooks in the bog.
To quote somebody from those instagram comments 'be careful lewis, rock climbing is almost as dangerous as grosjean'
Sponsers have other things to worry about ;)
That said i would like to see some more pics.. the ones on the wall are a bit slabby..

I don't think been seen climbing is going to raise one of the most recognisable and well known names in sport.
As for risk.climbing is like knitting compared to f1.
I think the last Pope was a climber when he was a young priest

Bang on there Jamie.
If I had Lewis Hamilton's disposable income I'd probably dabble in a whole load of "interesting" activities like climbing. Still doesn't make him a climber, but if you want to use this flimsy evidence to enhance your hero-worship feel free.
> my favourite racer, now gets bonus points. Any other famous for something else rock climbers?
He has already said he was scared sh**less and won't be doing it again!
Mate of mine once took Frank Bruno rock climbing. Apparently Frank was shitting bricks and said he'd rather do 10 rounds in the ring anytime!
Tony Scott used to climb. Shame he didn't try a rope swing off that bridge..
But still. for me it's interesting to see people who have it all getting involved in something i love, despite the inherent risk. i've enjoyed googling all the people mentioned by others to see them on a wall. For me that's interesting.... whether or not it qualifies them as a climber by your standards is well. irrelevant to me in this.
so bear that in mind if you want to argue with me. the arguement is irrelevant to me. It's not something I have any interest in engaging you on. I've responded to your previous posts in good jest.. well that was the intent at least however you have perceived them. Finito now.
thanks for all the other replies... shame there's no pics of frank bruno at a crag on google, that would of been pretty epic! 'ya know what i mean 'arry
