You may have climbed on one of the walls he's built. He free climbed Yosemite's Leaning Tower with Leo Houlding. But now Jason Pickles, 31, of Salford has gained the ultimate macho accolade, he is officially Britain's Manliest Man...........
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.
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.

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