In reply to atlantis:

It will be quite useful to some people, even if it is American based.

No Cwm, no udge etc in there.

Thanks anyway.

Why not edit it Sutty? Else we face the further encroach of Americanisation. Infact you've inspired me to do the same.

In reply to VisionSet: If you look at the bottom of the link, you'll see the link for the UK version, and others too.

I think you didn't look at it very hard, for long enough ;)

That is irrelevant, it is an external link. Wikipedia is not supposed to be US centric. That article does not purport to be US centric. You'll notice I have emboldened your 'the' your choice of word here says a lot.

In reply to Ian McNeill: don't forget the links. maybe cwm should be mentioned under a new cirque entry, as this is the main wiki entry for this feature

"Combined Tactics" please.

A long lost gem. Known in Scots as "gies a footie !" and mostly deployed during apple stealing raids. The arrival of crampons compromised it a bit.
