In reply to UKC News: Nice vid. I wonder if I could climb that hard if I chopped off one of me fingers. Must make the other ones stronger to compensate I reckon

Maybe chop them all bar one off, and just have one, really strong, massive finger.

That's what I did and I wouldn't be where I am today otherwise.
