In reply to UKC News: Good to hear.
Does anyone know if Dave has big plans in the pipeline for this winter?
In reply to UKC News: Thanks for the this. I feel less of a d*ck now for being involved in a similar accident, using someone elses rope many years ago. Glad Dave is well on the mend, and it just goes to show that anyone can make a mistake. You just can't be too careful out there.
