/ Chris Craggs. why did you climb 'Free That You B*stards'?
Just wondering really. The name made an impression when I read about it being freed and called 'The B*stard'.
Not happy with original thread. ;-)
Some things best left.
I spent long enough on The Sissy (before becoming diverted by other things) and, much as I looked across at The Bastard, I could never see any holds (or what most of us would regard as holds).
"Free that you B*stards" was Chris's response.
In the magazines at the time, this was all reported as a kind of "competition" between free and aid routes in terms of what was it actually possible to free climb.
