Ha ha - love Dave's comment about Scotland having "frequent good conditions thanks to the almost permanent wind". Not sure if he's talking about the same Scotland that I live in..?!

Generally when I think about Scottish climbing, my first thought is about how lucky we are with the weather and conditions, yes.

Very nice bit of rock there, and a good ascent.

Couldn't be 8b+. Dave made that look too easy.

Dave's such a technician when it comes to movement.

This video makes it look a bit more like 8b+

In reply to maxtheclimber: Just ticked new base line as well... http://davemacleod.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/new-base-line.html photos are a bit arty, but sounds like the snowclearing warm-up still works...

A talented but extremely boring individual.

Meanwhile, you, no doubt, combine sparkling wit and talent in equal measure?
Ya plamph.

Weird comment.

I presume "extremely boring" means not screaming "SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEND IT DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" at every opportunity.

Dave always struck me as one of the more thoughtful and interesting charecters in our small world.

You couldn't be further from the truth. Having climbed with him a few times and met him numerous times back in his 'Dumby days', I can tell you that he's a really decent, interesting guy.

Perhaps you'd be so good as to put your own identity to your blank profile so we know who to criticise next time round.

Under used word that Davie, spot on here though.

Stoney Boy: I would add that you are also a fanny dancer.
