Great article.

One small point, it seems to be Pete climbing with the rope and not Tom.

Don't worry it is worksafe! Butterfly jams are a type of stacked handjam (ie. using both hands in a single jam) chicken wings are whay you eat afterwards :-)

Something tells me that Curbar (or any other offwidth rich venue) is gonna be seeing more action that usual over the next couple of months!

Is it worth installing some hidden webcams on the Ramshaw jamming ticklist routes? I think my last visit would have been worth a pile of cash from you've been framed so it could be a nice little earner!

That'd be brilliant, yes!

I hate watching myself on film, but I wish I had a video of myself giving my all to gain, ooh, 6 inches on Hercules (yep, a shameful performance!). Only to slide back down once as soon as I breathed. And repeat...

I've not tried Hercules and haveing looked at it I don't think I will :-)

Yes. Does it say something different somewhere? I may have missed it but the references seem correct at the moment.

The photo captioned as Tom climbing trench warefare with a rope is definitely Pete.
