There are plenty of other Christmas named climbs around the country. Spread the love
The Flange is a great climb and the name makes it!

Maybe just stick a charge on climbing it on Christmas day and reduce those queues..........
Stick a Christmas day charge on it!!!!
Great idea. Optional of course (except for the public humilation of refusal) and for the access fund.
I followed Dick Turnbull up it in the dark on Tuesday 23rd after work!
Sloppy Shite that I am, I proposed after climbing Christmas Crack on Christmas day 11 years ago. Even had a bottle of bubbly in my pack - which we ignored in favour of a hot flask of coffee.
