I'd put it more strongly than that. Unusually well and interestingly written.

Definitely, although I think he should have gone for "Appointment with mild peril" as a name for consistency.

It's a slab; how hard can it be? ;)

Seriously though, how on earth do you undercut a pebble?!

Shape your hand like you are pinching a pebble, then turn it upside down!

Great effort.

But he should have called it "Just time for a coffee" (as it's between two appointments).

Or "By Appointment"?

Great effort, anyway!

Well obviously but the thought of doing that to keep your feet pinned to the rock for the next move just fills me with terror

In reply to UKC News: Great effort Nathan, I dread to think what's on your list for the winter.

Astounding climb and a really really good read. Thanks.
In reply to UKC News:

In case you are in the area and you'd like to see the video footage, Nathan will be giving a free lecture on this ascent and others, together with Andi Turner and Jordan Buys, next weekend at Outside Cafe.
