I haven't read this article but I am shocked that is the title. For some reason I was on a google search last night to see what this guy has been up to after watch that top gear episode with him in.

Google seemed to indicate not much but I am guessing that is wrong, best have a read

How do you manage to keep your fingers warm in cold conditions when up very high on a bigwall? I imagine it gets cold.

What a shame the candles are fake, though I guess there's enough danger in Leo's life already.
