Climbing Wall Leading Review - photo 3, 3 kbKatherine Schirrmacher takes a look at a new book from Ian Fenton, published by Pesda Press.

It'd be rather nice if you could find space a the bottom of Katherine's review for a sentence about Ian. Perhaps by the side of the sentence about Katherine?

In reply to jon: He's an MIC and IML IIRC. He did my SPA training and I remembered him from a residential trip I went on when I was at school. He's a thoroughly nice guy and he knows his onions.

Yes, I know he is, having met him recently. Your first sentence tells us so much more about him. I just thought it was lacking in the article.

In reply to UKC Gear: It's a shame the book wasn't available to the teacher in this HSE report:
