The arial crags questions were tricky, a few give aways but lots of featureless green pastures too.

I'd also like to lodge a formal complaint about the answer to 27! There's 2 crags in the picture, only one of which gets you the right answer.

Full credit to Tom Ripley for this round, I thought his choices were inspired.

You're quite right, although there's probably more like four in total. That said, pick the largest, most extensive, and best known and you'll get the point :-)

I enjoyed that, thanks. I did wonder if Q 6 was a trick question since none of the choices is correct, the name of the M. Bourdonneau in question being Edmond not Emile?

Also re Q 12 I believe it's "Chasin' The Trane" not "Chasin' the Train" it being a reference if John Coltrane's work entitled Chasin' The Trane as well, perhaps, as his nickname "Trane".

Sorry - I'm an inveterate nitpicker - just can't help myself!

Does he get credit for naming the round after a font too? ;-) <whispers> it's aerial I think, not arial</whispers>

Ha, I hadn’t spotted that - amazing 😂
