FFS Only on UKC..!!!?

I am presuming this 'news' was badly cribbed off www.javu.co.uk.. If you would like to read something more informative and correct then visit javu's news section. There you will find a lovely round up of recent bouldering activity in the SW without having to work out why Exmoor's moved counties.

Exmoor is a long long way from North Cornwall..

Not really an appropriate way to highlight ones gratitude at UKC for pushing some more covering of things going on down south now is it?

It's good to see Duncan on the UKC team and applying his connections with down here in a positive manner!

Keep it up, there are more than just Newberry down here who are producing news-worthy first ascents and repeats.

In reply to The Green Giant: OK. Hopefully, you can understand that having the words 'Exmoor, Cornwall' in the news item was a tad annoying. The equivalent of saying something like 'Peak District, Northumberland'. Unfortunately there have been plenty of similar gaffs in news items here.

Perhaps I may have been overly critical. Apologies for that. The glaring mistake has been corrected, there is a link to the news item on javu and balance has been restored to the universe. Thanks Duncan, gratitude for correcting it promptly.

'Pipeline' really is a fantastic problem, tried by many in the area and it took Tom to crack it. A brilliant effort, given tidal access and remoteness of the area.

Serenity 8b is not at Roache Abbey, it is infact in the same valley but not on Mr S land. The boulder problem is however at a crag called Impossible Roof.

Please if you read this do not go to Roache Abbey looking for this problem or infact to try and boulder, the access issues are back and the security guard is being very vigilant.

Careful guys, lopping off bits of Cornwall indiscriminately could get the Oo-ar-eh and O-Farmer Bin Laden of the Cornish Nationalists after you!
