Hi everyone,
I am an Australian climber and I'll be visiting your shores sometime in the next few months... I am particularly interested in a place called 'sheffield'
A Welsh climbing friend of mine told me that there was some really good potential for sport routes in the area. he mentioned I should particularly pay attention the 'grit' areas?? I'm not sure where this is but I'm sure I will find out.
Basically my dilemna is that I want to develop some routes while I'm there, but I don't have enough room in my bag for my trusty drill because it weighs so much!!
So i'm wondering if there are any places nearby that I will be able to borrow/rent a 24V battery rotary hammer drill, or even a petrol-motor rotary hammer drill??

Thanks guys,
l.d. donny

another one up for the 'golden troll award' i thought you were supposed to post anonymously....

In reply to Paul Bowen:
if i was 'trolling' then surely I would post anonymously!! but i assure you that I will be flying into heathrow in mid april for a month of climbing & developing routes in Britain. my mate ben just did a few routes there (parthian shot & gaia i think were the ones he said) and he said they would be really good with a couple bolts, so when i come over to join him we're going to do that and also put up some new lines.
now are you going to answer my question or what?

In reply to sir mouse: If you try to bolt on grit you will be killed. Even if this is not a troll it is so outrageous that it is a troll by default.

In reply to sir mouse:
Oh, rest assured they certainly have a few drills to use

In reply to flat eric:
what are you all on about?why would i be trolling??
is it such a dumb question to ask where i can get a fricken drill? and what the hell is so wrong with putting a couple bolts in to protect otherwise unprotectable climbs?

I have had a quick word with Sloper he is quite enthusiastic about helping. He should be able to sort out the legal niceties, if you know what I mean.

I can just imagine
Just give us a shout if you need anyone on standby with fluids etc to prolong the fun.

eerrrm, that sounds completely wrong somehow.

In reply to abzmed:
you know what? you guys are really rude and unappreciative. it is not easy work to put in bolts and it is very expensive. i do not put routes up only for myself, i put them up for other people to enjoy. and from what ive started to hear, i reckon maybe you guys secretly want me to put bolts so that you can do some decent routes...because your balls are too small to do the lines as they are. or maybe you're just scared that once i bolt these routes youll have no excuse for not trying them so you will look stupid when you are too weak to do the moves?!

anyway, im not going to let a couple morons on the internet spoil my trip- im sure there are plenty of nice & APPRECIATIVE climbers in britain that will help me.
hiclimber7504 Mar 2007
In reply to sir mouse: Why don't you ask if british climbers want you to bolt british routes and what routes they want bolting...I'm sure there are enough british climbers that can bolt routes if need be any way
sir mouse04 Mar 2007
also, to all the 'subtle' threats... sure you can fire your mouths off, but i must warn you that im not a small fella & ive put a *few* punches in in my time. good luck to anyone who tries to take me on physically, but i take no resposibility for what will happen to you.

SHEFFIELD STAR
Latest:

Police investigating the sad death of a Climber who was found near a gritstone edge in the Peak have appealed for witnesses.

"Sgt nobber was quoted as saying, "It's a real shame, it appears he fell from the top and a 15kg Ryobi petrol drill landed on his head 23 times. Lord knows what he was doing there. Just a shame he didn't contact any of the local climbing fraternity, they could have told him he was wasting his time".
Another off the record report said Police were looking for 35-40 persons seen leaving the area soon before the body was found . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The bigger they come etc etc.

If you don't know the Peak how do you know that there are "otherwise unprotectable climbs"?

Ask your Mummy to let you stay up a little later and watch Colombo a bit, you wouldn't make such basic errors

In reply to abzmed: I dont believe Sir Mouse exists, and its so stupid it has to be a troll of course. But just to point out, you WILL be killed, and I dont care how big you are, try taking on 20 gritstoners at once.
If it was not a troll you would be the thickest person that ever posted on here.

In reply to Al Evans:
thickest ever? id go out on a limb and say you probably take that title out- if you click on the above link you'll find published plans & progress of the entire operations

In reply to sir mouse: Nice one very funny indeed....You should of listened to your mates and they are right you are a crap troll lol
