In reply to Neil Foster:
Those guys rock. None of this puny fighting over grades and things on rock faces hardly bigger than pebbles.
Proper onsight spirit, with only the occasional redpoint.
They were well impressive when they came to the BMC meet too.
Just get out there and get stuff done... a few images and vids to keep sponsors happy but no massive media machinery.

I had the pleasure of climbing with Sean on the first day of the meet, without having a clue of who he was or his experience. After a couple of warm ups I sent him up Right Wall on the Cromlech, during which he only placed 4 bits of gear. Afterwards I decided in my ignorance to point out that "he had missed quite a few good placements". He accepted the criticism seriously yet without at all being defensive, and it was only after he had walked up Lord of Flies that I realised that he was not bothering to place gear because it was obvious that F7a/b climbing was no more than a warm-up, and therefore didn't need that much protection!
A very strong, very talented, and most importantly of all very friendly and approachable chap. Many congratulations on his and Nico's success in Patagonia.
