Total Eclipse at Malham possibly scrapes in at 8c+/9a.
Great effort Caff - one of the most significant repeats of 2011.
Well done Caff much love from Spain, Sam and Rich Orange x
Hope you get chance to put all that sports fitness to even more good use on some trad now...
Top effort Caff. Great to see you hitting 9a at last. Though the trad stuff, imho, if far more impressive to me, as a trad climber myself.
Anyway, well done.
Legendary repeat! Its not even good conditions at the moment.
Brilliant effort from James. Very, very inspirational ascent from an inspirational climber.
Thanks, here it is:
You could be right there but not sure i could get that on ITunes!
Think I know where your coming from with the song Chris ` She Bangs, She bangs, as in the `Big Bang` is that what inspired you to use that crappy song ?
To James - Respect youth :)
