Cheers Ron

indeed. I tried to compare the height of my three storey office block with the 11m fall his climbing buddy took - really made me relaise what a big lob that is!

In reply to Andy Mountains: Read this yesterday, looks like some scary s**t! It is however, these type of blogs that make me want to winter climb. Sounds like a great adventure!

Has anyone seen his testicles?


I reckon they are the size of coconuts and hard as steel (with an insulating coating obviously).

Respect to the strong yoof.

Nice to see a young climber willing to run a rope up for the older guys ;)

In reply to Erik B:

Of course! What I probably meant was Boswell will become a recognised name next to Pete M, Martin Moran etc

In reply to Andy Mountains: sounds like this winter is going to be action packed at the naughty end of the grading scale, cracking looking route and great account.

In reply to petemacpherson: cheers for that. Walked off in full moon, quality moment.

In reply to Erik B: Aye Erik, its just the way the cookie crumbles as it were. New routing at your absolute limit is a funny business at times. The potential to get smashed to bits is rather high at times. Anyway more importantly Mr Boswell is a total dude, who happens to be a brilliant winter climber.

Cheers Pete

Did you mean to stick that extra 'd' in there Pete? :-D

Greg's enthusiasm shines through his blogposts. Sounds like the future of winter climbing is in safe hands. Makes a punter like me feel very inadequate though :-)
