/ NEWS: VIDEO: Dave Birkett's New E9
As promised here is the VIDEO.
Watch it at http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/
What's with this "sent" rubbish? Surely he climbed it?
Anyway, I'll watch the video after my tea.
Al Phizacklea and myself went up to Cam Crag years ago and looked at this line, with definite emphasis on "looked". Everything just sloped the wrong way and the whole thing looked way out of our league, really hard climbing and serious with it.
Good effort from Dave.
Good send eh Bob...as in send/post the envelope to its destination or in this case pushing the envelope.
Looked like climbing to me Mick, not a send in sight. Good scree run as well.
surely the term "sent" is an evolution of the word "ascent" ?
well thats what i always assumed anyway.
brilliant effort. It looks truly scary
> surely the term "sent" is an evolution of the word "ascent" ?
Eh up Dave
I think it is derived from to send an envelope or a package in the post, to have done with it, to have despatched it. Not sure in what context though....originally.
Like every other word in modern climbing slang it was probably first invented and used by the late Jack Mileski
