A couple of remembrances from my brief time with them:

Tom's look of horror and despair when I asked him if he'd got my late night text about 'lost' routes that I'd just discovered on Lawrencefield Quarry that had been climbed by Whillans and Brown (not actually true).

Tom backing off from his first go at Jankers Groove musing on how tricky it was for a VS!

In reply to John2:

One of the hardest HVSs at Stanage.
