Hurrah! We (well, *I*) like Jack's manner - he's like the friendly face of UKC or something...

A credit to the organisation!

lol, well... we should all play to our strengths with these things, right, and Jack's 'client-facing' manner is very positive. That's a compliment to the whole team, for assigning roles in such a logical and skill-centred manner

Best not employ Mick in advertising then if Jack is the only 'client-facing'!

You are either a marketeer or a politician with a reply like that!

In reply to Mick Ryan - Editor - UKC: Congrats to Jack -

Adopting the role of whinging freelancer who never makes a deadline, then moans when his contributions aren't up online within three minutes of sending them in - have you sent Jack my latest gear review to edit yet Mick?

Got it Toby. Will look tomorrow, been a bit hectic of late.

Cough.... helmets... cough.... windproofs.... splutter... DMM.

Please Mick and Jack!

Please email us direct about articles and gear reviews.. not the greatest idea to communicate with us via the forums.

Thanks,

Nice one Jack, well deserved I'm sure. You certainly gave me alot of good advice while we were out on the hill at PYB last weekend! I'm gonna be taking a crack at that first E1 lead next weekend thanks to the insipiration you gave when you just mentioned in passing that you had climbed E9!!! Thinking 'The Link' at Mississippi buttress (stanage) might go quite easily after dealing with 'congo corner'.

Anyway congrats with the job and all that I hope it works out well.
