In reply to UKC News: The 'Lord' video is excellent even if the route is pre-chalked! But why did Ron give it that name?

Was Stuart the first to onsight E8? Remember his diary being serialised in OTE in the 90s. Malcolm Smith reckoned SC was as strong as he was. Legend.

How does Tim manage to make a sea cliff climb on Holyhead look positively Mediterranean? I lived there for 18 years of my life and never saw such lovely weather :D

Great videos, really shows what trad is about. I like the fact that especially the Tim E one shows all the messing with the gear, the whole experience.
