/ Wide Boyz Lecture
It gives a great insight into the dedication and training that went on to help both Tom & Pete achieve some great ascents on US turf, along with some practical demo's and explanations of offwidth climbing terminology...If you get the chance go and see!
Looking forward to the film later this year...
I'll second that, I thought it was really fresh and honest.
I know you're watching out there Tom so thanks.
And Cleggy - I'm looking out for you!
Are there plans for any more lectures?
The next ones coming up are:
23rd Feb, Expert Night at Shaff (Sheffield
2nd March, Kendal Wall
31st March, Outside Hathersage.
I might organise one more if there's demand!
Other than that, me and Pete will be doing a full tour around the time of the film release for Kendal Film Fest/Edinburg Film Fest, in which case there will plenty of venues around the UK.
Nice one in the states,
Another vote for Cardiff!
Beware of the perils of tabloid celebrity!!!
Quote from the comments on the article
"If only our MP's had just half the guts of these brave lads, our country would be bounding along on the top of a wave. All I can say it it was a great feet(sic) of determination, true old fashioned British grit."
Just what i was thinking ;-)

I'm very impressed by the number of errors (mainly incorrect terminology) the DM managed to get into that short article - might be ok for joe public but for any climber it just comes across as shoddy journalism. They could have given any climber a pint to quickly go over and sort out the obvious gaffs.
I don't think they "look like lovely young lads" either!
I know you know this but, they're into making money, not necessarily telling the truth.
And so's the Daily Mail.
Yeah something down south would be good.
> Yeah something down south would be good.
Indeed. Not many things are, are they.
I can't work out if you're being sarcastic or not! Certainly in terms of climbers doing the rounds, it mainly seems to be up north. More demand/closer to home I suppose. Wouldn't mind betting they'd sell out a date in Bristol though.
If you miss out on this one, we'll be doing another in the Autumn when the film comes out with extended film footage. It'll be hosted somewhere in the centre of Sheffield (along with some others round the UK)
Hope that helps
>Wouldn't mind betting they'd sell out a date in Bristol though.
Yeah, or Mile End. Come on, Tom, sort it out!
or couple of days in advance? No bother if not. Just on the off chance due to a long way to travel.
Many thanks for the help and info.
