/ NEW ARTICLE: Meet Pete Robins - A Photo Profile
“There are no routes in the UK harder than E7, except the Indian Face at E9”
"I'd definitely swap Burbage Valley for Ogwen, or Curbar for Cloggy perhaps."
Want to meet Pete Robins...

is that an un-rehearsed visit to Llanberis Spice?
anyway yes...very absorbing article Jack.....a cut above the usual climber interview.
Excellent - thanks.
Very good, I look forward to reading the whole thing later.
ps. no probs viewing it on my screen.
I have a quick question - how do dudes like Pete train to keep at such a high level of climbing? I take it it's not down the wall every Tuesday and Thursday and then out at the weekend? Or is it because they have been climbing since they were kids and their fingers / body has been conditioned to the required effort that they don't have to train as us mere mortals? Or is it all in the head?
Excellent article Jack
Great article Jack - thanks.
Agree about the scroll'y thing - i will wait and read it at home on the big monitor and then comment on the content,
If it still doesn't work for you then I'm afraid it is a toss up between making the photo's smaller or making a few people scroll to see the text.
i have the same issue with horizontal scrolling. photos fine but script is about seven letters too wide. i have 15 inch monitor.
Nice work Jack.
In reply to Bushman - he climbs like he does because he climbs - no time for training - not to mention wholesome home cooking.
Climbing and cooking is the key then...watch this space!
from one of the pics i can see you've ruined the suspense for the upcoming 'onsight' dvd!
I was fortunate to climb a couple of times with Pete and it was always a pleasure.
