Great article, that's just made my dinner break!

Just need to do it now.
Anyone know how hard is it technically? (I get the picture of how hard in other ways!) - 6a at least clearly.

Sorry Steve, rich had pc problems today and I was busy welcoming the new goats!! I did mean to type goats not guests as orange house now has a farm.

Steve did that make sense to you, it didnt to me!!!
