Great stuff!

In reply to UKC Articles:

Written with a lovely light touch, poignant, without being sentimental. Nicely done.

In reply to UKC Articles:

Beautifully done! What a nice surprise that was, to see this article appear and enjoy it so much. Made my morning.

That is such a good article. So much of that reminds me of my early climbing days. Thank you.

Superb article. I remember that exact feeling of moving of the same rock that Ben, Jerry and Johnny had all climbed.

But lemons in G&T!

What this brings home, amongst all the current obsessions with grades and on-sights, is that what really matters is the people we do it with.

In reply to UKC Articles:

Really nice piece.

EWY went even further back than GWY, of course, being the daughter of Cecil Slingsby, he of the Chimney.

Smashing, I love all the intertwined narratives of our daft sport. The Eleanor WY thing was a great bit of serendipity!

Thank you! It was a pleasure to write. Yes! Hard Rock - John and I had that and Classic Rock at school. Devoured the stories and pored over the pictures. 

Thanks for all the lovely comments ukc people. An update: John's Dad had a Jag not a Rolls, but it was already written and I liked it like that with roll ups coming next. He's chuffed with the upgrade. Mike Weeks was Mike Banks, I learned this morning, in the latest copy of Climber. Thank you Mike Banks for being inspiring and kind.
