/ people who should have been climbers
what, you mean he didn't actually climb the Eigerwand?
I bet the young Fred Dibnah could've given the Villain a run for his money. :o)
Bruce Lee. Two finger press ups etc!!
> Norman Wisdom
because he was so good at falling?
Nothing like a bit of slapstick to liven up a dull day at Stanage !
Be careful what you Google for.
You have missed the obvious
Sly Stalone, he was !!!! in Cliffhanger.
I'm not convinced, having seen her act I don't think she'd make a great climber: Very flexible but that level of flexibility is going to mean awful joint stability and probably fairly limited muscle tone. High feet are useless if you don't have the power to get your weight on them.
Also, Arthur Scargill.
Likewise I reckon Evel Knievel could have easily mastered the head games. He knew a lot of his stunts would fail, but did them anyway. Not sure if this would be a good approach for climbing, but I bet he would have pushed himself to his limits.
> Cyril Smith
Good weight to power ratio!
> Jimmy Saville
He was. Why else own a cottage in Glen Coe?
Pinocchio, Dougal off The Magic Roundabout, Wile E Coyote and King Kong.
Yes but she would be easy to smuggle past the other half in a 50 litre rucksack...
Slash, Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper: all lovers of Hard Rock.
> what, you mean he didn't actually climb the Eigerwand?
He did however get up to leading 5.7 in his training for it.
I thought was Dame Kelly Holmes.
Danny MeggaSkill (macaskill)
Think about it ... isolate location ....
> I thought was Dame Kelly Holmes.
You are almost certainly correct.
I thought he did a fair bit of climbing in his spare time?
Nah, he has people to do that for him. ;O)
"> (In reply to silo) Brian blessed"
+1. Would love to hear him cursing on a desperate lead. :)
He is/was a climber.
Whistling Roger Whittaker
Dave Lee Travis
Saint Augustine: his confessions of a sinful climber should entertain those condition-less days!
My wife (there is hope yet...)
Lady Ga Ga
yeah, good footwork apparently
> >> Fred Astaire
> yeah, good footwork apparently
Ginger Rogers could do it backwards in high heels; how good would she have been!
