/ WINNERS: 5 Copies of Over The Moors To Win
The winners of this competition are:
Tom Bloxham from Manchester, Stephen Barby from Holmfirth, Rob The Juggler, Climbing Pixie and Raelene Cowie from Sheffield.
The answers? Nial has promised to list them later in this thread, but if you know the names of the nine crags I'm sure there will be another prize.
Do you know your crags?
If so, identify three of the crags in this competition and stand a chance of winning Over The Moors, the new BMC guidebook to Kinder, Bleaklow and Chew Valley. There are five copies up for grabs.

READ THE QUESTION
As I'm wearing my official hat here, I have removed the work 'fu@king' from that advice :-)
I listed all of them just to prove I am a damn clever dickie. Does that mean my entry will be void?
Don't help them. If they can't read properly it gives me a better chance of winning...
... or is it me that can't read?
You don't stand a cance of winninh ha ha ha.
If the above line has disheartened you, then yes, you can read. If it's no odds to you then no, you can't.
Hee heee I'm glad I impressed.
They're probably 3 wrong answers though ;-)
And you wanted people to identify all nine crags : o )
What do I win for identifying which is the only photo not taken from the new guide?
LOL, was just thinking that! Although even then, there's a photo of the same route, just featuring a climber with a better gurn. ::o)
I can send you a correct entry if it'd make you feel loved, but only 'cos I've got a copy of OTM on the desk in front of me. ::o)
(Not) very funny Frank!
PS Wait 'till you see the next Northern England guide - ha-ha.
Wow did this get my psyched for the moors! fingers crossed on the guide book :P
Yeah, more NYmoors stuff! I had to kill (well, pay twice the list price) to get the last copy of North East England on the web.
Being a pedant I feel I should point out that "Q: Name any three crags in the photographs above?" isn't really a question, but rather an instruction which doesn't require a question mark.
My question is do I have to specify the photo number with my crag 'guess' or can I just list three likely crags that are included in the guide?
Nice photos by the way.
Yes photo number with your crag 'guess'.
For example: Over The Moors Comp 1, Houghton Quarry
Aren't they just?
> Yes photo number with your crag 'guess'.
> For example: Over The Moors Comp 1, Houghton Quarry
> Aren't they just?
Does that mean my entry is void then?
It certainly doesn't say in the comp that a photo number should be matched to a crag 'guess'.
> Does that mean my entry is void then?
No we will count all entries with three crags. Our mistake.
Cheers Mick, I suspect that could make quite a few people happy again :)

It is a hard quiz if you don't know the area.
There have been a lot of entries so far, and people obviously recognise them. But the one thing I'd say is that so many people are just giving one answer. Oh, sorry. Guess. God loves a trier and all that (the way he also hates a smartie) but you're not going to win with just one answer. Gash! I mean Guess.
Well that's a bit of a bugger. I think I only put one down. Shame I can name 4!
I thought being a belayer on two of the photos really ruled out an entry :-(
Whats wrong with you? Have you no sense of fun?? For goodness sake delete that post.
Could go for cryptic clues instead...
1- 00110001 00111001 00111000 00110100
2 -take it or leave it
6- German child slips up
9- Icon slung high.
Or is that still not fun?...
Out of interest - was I right?
Not saying but my response may have been a clue.
tip top... want to join in the cryptic clues game then?
Route 1) A gift from the stage is risque when avoiding a start?
That will have to do for now.
