Worth at least a five for nostalgia and historical importance.

not sure about the belay technique : )

What was the name of their difficult second album?

All wearing Whillan's & happy about it. In those days, looking after your nuts meant careful placement before you climbed, not midway. A well captured moment Gordon. Boysens hair also says a lot.
Still got an old Whillans nailed to my house beam.

I think you mean Brian's hair. Also, Boysen appears to have simply a waistbelt.

I stand corrected young sir. I did indeed mean Brian's hair. re Boysen's waistbelt: Aye, well holding your troos up is more important than arresting leader falls.
