That's Friday night tv sorted. I always enjoy there vids, with the banter and so on. Even when a little trepidation creeps in. I really relate to their style of climbing. And when a friend has just returned from another bolt clipping session on Kalymos, where's the excitement and true thrills.

Have I missed an item on his incredibly impressive ascent at Nesscliffe this year? If an item hasn't appeared an is not in the pipeline I feel I want to start a thread.

I thought the same! Guess it's just an 'easy' E7.

Pavey film is brilliant though.

Ring Ouzel calling at 22:00 😁

The only bit I would find frustrating is if I was using these videos for beta. Rob climbs everything so smoothly that you just can't tell which moves are hard and which easy. But they are lovely videos and give all of us more mature climbers hope for the future.
