Close down the internet, burn all the magazine HQ's and the printing plants, throw away your mobile, tape up everyone's mouth and cut their hands off so that they can't even write, ban professional climbers, murder all the climbing journalists, books on the bonfire, put your TV on the dump.......

You hung the holds Philo:

Do you really believe this? For it to be the Plantation it would have to get at least 100 times better and move nearer to more population centres than Newcastle....

It's all relative, if you see another ten people in a day up here then it's busy...
