The wonderful cover picture of Colin Kirkus in North Wales in 1932 in plimsols,with his hemp rope, is from a bygone era.

A great photo. Was there a photo of Rowland Edwards inside, looking intense? And maybe one of him on Left Wall?

He seems to use the same method as me for ironing his trousers.

No Rowland Edwards....but Dougal Haston looked pretty gripped tangled up in slings on The Old Man of Hoy...

Must be getting my issues mixed up. Senility! The strange thing is, it's as though I saw that issue for the first time yesterday - instead of 42 years ago.

He's forgotten most of his gear! you cant climb like that?

He almost did the first ascent of Vember with the sole of one boot tied on with string.......his premature death in 1942,shot down over Germany,was a great loss to British climbing.
