Sure is... the picture on crack and slab, belayed on a grigri with a static rope because the rest of the kit was at the other end of curbar... Didn't matter to Toby!

He's doing really well.

I met him on Tonsai, he base jumped past me while multi-pitching. The snap of his canopy scared the crap out of me. Nice guy, very friendly and utterly utterly mental.

Good luck to you Toby .... The irrepressible confidence of youth and lack of belief in your own mortality are fantastic values to have ..... They are only dulled by surviving your initial 'stupidities' and becoming an old git .. Best wishes

In reply to UKC News: his mentality is so far from my understanding its untrue. Amazing, I am sure I could learn something from him. Hope he recovers well

This is the kid on HXS isn't it - (this may not be an exact quote) "I'm not kidding myself anymore... there's no second chances..."

Looks like you got one dude, make the most. All the best fella.

In reply to Calder: That section of the film was my favourite. Great music on there too. He says something like "I love the Grit. Get respect even though I'm weak"!
