/ I'm going to regret this, but....
I probably shouldn't ask, but does anyone know what Crispin W (for it was he, I think), meant by a 'Greek kick'?
You seriously don't know what a Greek Kick is??
This must be a troll.
It's a hard move, described thus: κλωτσήσει
I've done it a couple of times, not when climbing but in self defence against Mrs. Num Num.
Love the fact that the top result on Google/LMGTFY is now this thread!
I thought it was a feta based version of red bull?
I meant to reply to this soon after your OP but my PC pretended to have lost its WiFi connection and by the time it was sorted, my mind was elsewhere.
I bet it is related to Sirtaki dancing (think "Zorba the Greek" theme music, three men side by side, arms over each others' shoulders, doing those funny little gentle side kick dance moves)
It's what Katy Dartford gives you when you criticise her BMC articles.
In Mr Dawes' "Full of Myself", somewhere near the beginning he describes an ascent of Nimbus at Tremadog - the guy (teacher?) leading the climb does some 'Greek dancing' on his way up the route.
Not sure that helps much.
Did you see my reply? I bet it is to do with crossing the lower leg(s)
