Bloody hell, gotta be chuffed to walk away after that. Hope you have a speedy recovery.
Phew - very glad she's ok. Nasty rope burn - ouch!
Scary stuff !
If memory serves, didn't John Dunne make the first repeat ?
Oh the Irony! Glad you're not seriously injured. Healing vibes sent
That's not irony.
You've been hanging out with Alanis Morissette too much....
Best of luck with your recovery Hazel.
> That's not irony.
Climbing a route called impact day and impacting the floor. I fail to see how that isn't Irony.
It would be ironic if the route was called "No way will you fall off this", but not if the name matches reality.
Irony is the opposite of what is expected ie decking off a route called "Safe As Houses".
Some things are definately learned best when learned the hard way.
Gosh. Brings a new meaning to ground breaking :-)
Best wishes for a super quick recovery Hazel!
