/ Most dogged UK climber?
What's the longest time you've spent on a climb before succeeding? Personally about 5 sessions on 50 for 5 at Kilnsey many years back.
Longest siege so far would be Makash Walou at Ceuse - that took me 7 weeks, so probably in the region of 28 sessions.
Have a couple of projects in Catalonia that have gone beyond that though... I'll get them one day! 😁
I thought this thread was going to be about minority sexual fetishes.
The most dogging UKCer is deffo birdie num num, I’ve seen him out 2 or 3 times when i’ve been doing the car parks
I think 19 tie ins for a route I didn't do, 4 sessions for one I did do. With the latter it went the attempt after I found a better sequence.
Nonsense about Telescope Tunnel... I get through easily ...the wide in chest just have to dive into the fray as high as possible. It's a heinous sandbag at Mod though... three Rockfax guidebooks in on Eastern Grit, all those logbook comments and votes, and its still wrong.
Is that the one at Birchen Edge? I tried that and after much excessive wriggling, untying the rope, removing my harness, ditching the bandolier I had stupidly draped around my chest and being moaned at by the wife and kids for about 45 minutes, who wanted to actually climb something, I gave up and slithered back to the ground.

And the very wide in the chest have to accept that while rich men may enter heaven, and camels may pass through the eye of a needle, they ain't never getting their tubby ass through Telescope Tunnel.
