Me and some friends were in Serengeti the day before he did Meltdown. If only I had known who the guy sitting down and watching me punter off Windows of Perception on TR was, I might have clung on a bit harder and stopped dicking around!
I'd like to think I inspired him to get on it...
I especially liked two bits:
First when he lassoed the next clip - cool I thought
Then the bit where he pulled his foot up with his hand and then snatched to the next holds with both hands at the same time - had to rewind/replay a couple of times to confirm "did I just see that?"
Ha ha I wondered when someone would mention that, and I guess caff also did it in boreals so it looks like if you want to climb the hardest slab in the UK boreal is the only brand to go for 😂

Its a turn of phrase. Maybe he shouldn’t come out with such daft statements then should he. Then people wont call him out on it, and have reason to suggest that he could potentially be a little stupid for what he said.

Is it though Pal? Lots of people think otherwise, so this comment makes you look pretty damn stupid, doesn’t it?

Yes sleepyeye, i mean deadeye, but That, at the end of the day my friend, is just how it is. I couldn't care less about some daft thumbs up and thumbs down like or dislike 😂. At the end of the day, he was wrong. I called him out. End of.
Thank you, and goodnight, thats all she wrote.
So then the joke is ' and he climbed it in Boreals.....'.
Adam, you wrote " I called him out. End of. "
I don't think you understand that thus makes you seem intransigent to many other forum users. Yes, you had your opinion of the comment but there was no need to be uncivil in your criticism of it, was there?
If you didn't think you were being uncivil then I am afraid, in my opinion, you need re-educating in making social interactions pleasant and easier.
Having read Johnny's description of the route in an old On The Edge mag I always get disappointed watching people on it. He spoke of cluster's of 5 holds necessary to swap hands and leaping into laybacks where your knee rests on your hands etc. It sounded so out there, yet the videos don't seem to show that - has everyone else got different beta?
(I still have the article if anyone wants me to post up his description)
