/ NEW ARTICLE: Sharpening your ice tools by Graham Gedge
Thanks Horse and also a big thanks to Colm O'Dwyer for his gob smacking photo that illustrates this article.
And quite an apt photo......in Horse's interview when asked, "What would be your dream climbing trip outside the UK?"
"I used to dream about Ama Dablam."
Horse's article is not bad, it was the same information I got in my metalwork class I got at school in 1963.
Probably, but they do not do metalwork now Norrie but file things on computers.
Are you sure he didn't mean to say he fancied climbing onto Anne Robinson?

And unlike many you probably paid attention.
The house I used to live in in Leeds had an ornamental gronding wheel in the back garden. That was ideal for sharpening tools.
After conducting a double blind experiment I can conclusively state that as soon as my ice tools are taken out of the cupboard the wind in Lochaber swings to west and it starts to rain.
You two going to Glencoe?
I will be in Glen Coe in March. Given there is a major football competition this summer tradition dictates that I will arrive in Scotland the day England get knocked out. There have been some initial discussions with some natives, to be continued in March, about maybe mountain venues. I have yet to broach the subject with The Boss.
Could you try to cross the border some time on 20th June then please Horse?
OK, the German one as I head out for the knockout stages. Scotland may have to wait till July.
