/ Kev Shields in the Metro
Online version here:
Which has been classified under their Weird section and seems a little out of sorts to band him in with pygmy hedgehogs and the like.
Apart from the very misleading headline (& pic) it's not to bad an article and it does give his film premier a plug! 'The names Shields, Kev Shields'
Eat yer heart out Sean!
Plus a photo taken at an odd angle of him chalking up (I presume) makes it look like he does have one arm.
What route is it that he's on? And is it overhanging like it looks?
Looks a bit like 'The Edge' at those crags above Largs, what they called again? The Quadrocks. E3 5b I think, or it could be his new route on the bit of rock next to 'The Edge'.
Looking forward to the film, should be filled with sketchy moments! Inspirational stuff!
Gawn the Metro!
