Some more sandstone ones now. Matt had broken his left foot and was climbing with it in plaster, even managing to do things like the desperate Love. I tried it but could make no impression on this hateful overhang!

Looks more like the 'The Thing', Love is way to the left next to Hate

Sorry, should be way to the right next to Hate. Nice piccy though!

You're right, of course. That faulty memory of mine. Have corrected.

Don't know if you know but Matt is back climbing hard after a serious accident. It looked at one point like he might not walk again but he was recently seen looking strong in the Foundry! Top man.

No, didn't know about that. As you say, top man.
