A stupid and iresponsible post imho encoureging people to go and climb routes when they are NOT in condition by Suggesting an accent. if you have made an accent it is completly unethecal and WILL NOT COUNT as a winter accent

I would Never Joke about and Accent hich are unethical and out of condition. This route and all the turf on it Could be riuned by This iresponsable and behavier. Why oh Why caNT people ust Wait until routes Are in consition properly?

Haha. I too, hope you're joking. Read the OP's post properly.

And people come On here to this froum and defend unethical accents like this. It really bugs me. The delicate rock will be All scratched and it will Ruin the Downfall for summer accents.

I'm sorry. I can't take you seriously. Autocorrect or no autocorrect, please spell "ascent" correctly before you post.

Funny really, you'd expect him to be a bit better at the old spelling and punctuation. Given that he's a journalist ;-)

I'm more worried by the fact that his words strongly suggest he didn't bother to read past the header before commenting.

In reply to Richard Baynes:

Listen Richard, there wont be a single piece of ice developing on the downfall yet! And its pretty obvious from the OP that nobody has made an ascent today using tools!

You are just proving my points in other threads, that people are to quick to jump on the ethical/conditions band wagon! Thanks for that.
xplorer on 26 Dec 2013
In reply to Richard Baynes:

P.S. There isn't any turf on the downfall you icetool!

Umm... I'm pretty sure he's taking the p*ss.. :)
xplorer on 26 Dec 2013
In reply to ciaran1999:

I don't think he is. I just think he jumped on the band wagon without reading or knowing anything about the downfall. I don't see why anyone would want to take "the piss" in that way. Doesn't really prove a point, Does it?

Perhaps, but i'd be more inclined to believe he's messing. Journalist or not, it takes work to fit that many mistakes into one sentence..

Oh I think it does!
xplorer on 26 Dec 2013
In reply to Joak:

I don't think it does, come on let's not pretend this is all to make people more aware of conditions and ethics, give it a rest

He's got a very nice piece on old gits' cycling clubs in Weege. Beautifully written, well worth reading. If you go on his webpage it's here:

Shocking piece of work.. not even a basic grasp of the English language ;)

Perhaps it's someone else who's guilty of wading in before looking at the info available!

That website also tells us that Richard has extensive experience as a sub-editor.

Remind me, what does a sub-editor do? ;-)
Richard Baynes - on 26 Dec 2013
In reply to Tim Chappell:
OK, rumbled. But what does it tell us about our other contributors that someone could have taken that stuff seriously?!!
And thanks for the compliments about the old gits cycling - AKA the Wednesday Woblers, great guys and still at it.

It tells us that more often than not, people are always preaching about conditions and ethics. When they have very little idea about routes and even actual winter climbing. ;-)

Anyway, you had your ten minutes of fun, I'll be sure to post a link on your website haha
In reply to Richard Baynes:

I did just wonder if you were ...vewy vewy drunk... <hic!> ;)

Mr Xplorer has shown once again his sarcasm detector is a bit wonky.
xplorer on 26 Dec 2013
In reply to TobyA:

Haha yea maybe, sarcasm is sometimes a little hard to detect when people post on here.

Maybe I just have to admit that the ethics/conditions preachers have actually got to me, quite a lot :-/

Well they've got to me too, and so have the people who spell ascent "accent".
I'm not usually a wind-up man but I thought the OP was brill because we all looked... , and once I started ... sorry for any offence.
Ah well, back to footie headlines ho hum...

Had to turn my thermostat up by 2 degrees this morning, AND slept with an extra blanket last night...

Has anyone been up to see if the Downfall is in this morning?

some of us have climbed the downfall on days like this - there's no rule that says you have to do it as an aid route with picks and sticks, people did once climb outside in the wet

How does the Dan Osman ascent of the waterfall fit into your ethics/conditions debate?
xplorer on 27 Dec 2013
In reply to n-stacey:

how does my ascent of various routes fit into your ethics/conditions debate?

Because to be frank, I have no debate with ethics/conditions, I know exactly what I can and can't do.

Plenty of surface ice on the path on Xmas day and a lot of little popsicles on the vegitation - dogs seemed to enjoy them. But nothing "in"

Went up Kinder Scout today, now there is quite a bit of snow up there.There seems to be bit of ice in places, looks like the downfall is just starting to freeze in places.Its no where near in condition but to a mere beginner like my self it looks like it could one day freeze this winter.
