"We asked in Edinburgh for that E11 but no one knew then Steve remembered it was Glasgow lol but we got there. We did a load of new boulder problems at Dumbarton and I called it Raiders are here Lock Up You Scotch Women. I thought it was hard maybe Font V16 might get Sharma or Fred over check it out. Then we did E11 didn't find it too bad. At the top desperate sequence. I went left hand, right hand, left hand, right hand, left hand right hand, left hand right hand. Steve recorded it all on his phone as we are going to release a video. We did one before called it SOFT GRIT LOL

That night we slept on a benck but some man weed on Steve and told him that he was a £$%^. Will post pix up on UKC last time one got a three and Ian and Simon all liked it when I asked them........

Then the Lakes. MAN I HATE WALKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but did that John Dunnes E10. I agree with Birkett was easy for the grade I thought E9 maybe but say nothing. The crag was all wet streaks made it feel E10 mate. Had a pair of those new Prana pants were most excellent worked really well on the crux. Dave says I should get sponsored but I have a kinda deal with Red Chili and don't want to upset Stefan. Emailed Leo to tell him I'd done it good to keep the lakes boys on thir toes not heard back yet told him i thought Lakes boys were soft it was E7 lol"

Not funny, in fact really infantile, you really are scraping the barrel - for laughs.

Slow news day Mick? "Newsflash - Man writes mildly amusing blog entry" Have I missed something? jk

I go to the UK climbing page for serious news. Jokey threads have their place, but the news page on UKC isn't it - it's not April 1st...

WTF has Grimer been drinking?

Bit of news here for some. If you haven't realised yet, Life is News; in this case Climbing Life is News. Look at the news items we have up over the last year: hundreds of them....most very serious, the odd one not. This one isn't. Still, this wouldn't be life if someone didn't complain about the news here, but the majority don't and we are getting more the compliments and nearly 4,000 views of the news page each day. Goodness, even Dave Turnbull (he's the boss of British Climbing Inc.) said to me that he is a regualr reader. Please keep your comments coming: I enjoy them all. Onward as ever. Mick
