Well done Percy! Over Christmas the Economist magazine had a rather fine article on route setting in it which I found surprisingly interesting, hopefully next time the heavyweight newspapers of the world will be able to interview Mr Bishton as well as the French and German route setters (IIRC).

Didn't Percy once sport perhaps the second most famous set of dreads in climbing after Mr Moon's? I'm sure I remember that from late 90s OTEs.

Should keep Wide Boyz busy for the first half of the year, with all the national teams trying desperately to learn how to jam!

Percy’s probs. are really interesting and technical. The Works might be a little scruffy compared to The Depot etc. but the problems are clever and enjoyable, as opposed to the simple pull them or fail of other bouldering walls
