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!

I think stunt monkey is the best thing i have ever seen on UKC!
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.

Look out for some more mental photos of Toby in the latest issue of Summit - due out in 2 weeks.

Looks like you got one dude, make the most. All the best fella.
Yeah that's him, on Soul Doubt.
