In reply to UKC News: Expect it to be ticked by Will Atkinson soon too. He got to the final throw on monday and slipped off the holds. He can do laps on the joker so shouldn't be long before the lanky homo gets it

I can't decide which is best... being able to do laps of the joker or being mates with someone who thinks it's fine to call people 'lanky homos' on climbing forums...

In reply to andyjjj: Is that being lankist?

Yes, it's amazing how UKC's censorship policy does and doesn't operate, isn't it?

Worrying trend, actually, Bit like those no-mark Brits (I forget who they were) who put some unpleasant banner up while climbing El Cap recently.

In reply to UKC News: sorry I forgot that climbers can't make fun of their mates in forums. I'll rephrase it for those who I offended.

Shouldn't be long before the rather tall chap who likes men gets it
