Amusing, but in what way is this climbing news??

Oh wait! I spotted the tiny, almost non-existent reference! He once climbed the Leaning Tower with Leo Houlding. Do I get a prize?

This is almost a Viz story!

It is a very amusing story, I'm pleased it hasn't been written too seriously, afterall, I don't think you could with that picture!
In reply to Mick Ryan - Editor - UKC:Sort it out Mick your having a laugh posting this as a news article. I'm almost embarrased for you.

In reply to Mick Ryan - Editor - UKC: Dear me! Her children won't go hungry will they!

Love her comment - Lucy said: “Forget the metrosexual man who spends more time in the mirror than us, enjoys soppy films and loves to go shopping. What a girl really wants is a manly man like Jason.”

Will have to send this to the other half to read!

Very disappointed in you Mick.

How could you not know who Lucy Pinder is!? :0)

In reply to Toby S: She's a page 3 model as we can read - is she really famous like Sam Fox?

Did you know that Sam Fox is now a lesbian and plays in a cheesy hair metal band?

The best bit is the looser comment at the bottom - sod the rest of the article!

My thoughts exactly. I wonder if it was ironic? I get a strange feeling it wasn't.

In reply to Mick Ryan - Editor - UKC: By the sounds of it he'd go down well in the Chat forum Friday night at UKClimbing.com

I see normal service has resumed.

Exclusive UKC interview with Britain's Manliest man later today when Mr. Pickles returns from a night out with his celebrity friends, Kate Moss and Robbie Williams, at London's celeb spot, The Golden Heart.

I quite like the photo caption "what a tool" yes, he is indeed! lol!

In reply to Mick Ryan - Editor - UKC: An address in Barff Road seems fairly appropriate.

In reply to Mick Ryan - Editor - UKC:
I would also like to dispute the accuracy of this article.

It is a well known fact that my friend Jack Shannon is in fact the manliest man in existence. He regularly wrestles bulls to the ground and eats them not merely rare, but in some cases still breathing. He gets to uni in a Viking longship every morning, carries a broadsword and a lightsabre with him wherever he goes, and wears more leather than is strictly legal.

I suppose you`ve a point but if you watched him doing a 60m 7a+ traverse backward and forwards 4 times you might think it has a bit more to do with climbing, in fact if you watched him doing a 60m 7a+ traverse backward and forwards 4 times with Lucy Pinder sat on YOUR knee I bet you`d consider that a pretty good day overall. I know I would.

Jason Pickles set a good 50% of the new routes at Awesome Walls, Stockport and has just reset the back wall at Liverpool! Manliest Man and very good route setter!!!

In reply to D Douglas:

Just heard that Pickles has gone into hiding at a "secret location" because of the media frenzy, and has hired not only a body guard but a business agent to deal with all the interest from companies wanting to "leverage" his celebrity.

Just talked to Mr. Pickles, he was tucking into a manly plate of fish and chips. Apparantly he has won a week in Pamplona to run with the bulls, and he has to catch one, slaughter it, then butcher it into joints and fillets, and then of course Rustler's will be doing a big fry up.

Unfortunately this won't be onsight as Britain's manliest man, being a real man in the Ernest Hemingway tradition, has already run with bulls in Pamplona and has photographic evidence if we wish to see it.

I'll be doing further research as this story has legs and will run and run.

good work Mick, the news section has improved 10-fold. reckon all future news should be based on half made-up rumours and scandal. Paparazzi 'exclusive' (DEFINITELY NOT PHOTOSHOPPED) shock snaps of Dave MacCleod top-roping 3 pebble slab & claiming it's harder than HVS. E12?
The possibilities of slander are endless.
