BMC Officer Martin Kocsis pooed and spewed on Lundy

More news about the viral infection on Lundy courtesy of the BMC tells us the virus is believed to be airborne and not food or water-related.

BMC Volunteers Officer Martin Kocsis is on holiday on the island, and has caught the bug. He phoned the BMC to say: “I pooed and spewed for a whole day.” The BMC are awaiting photographs.

Tony Ryan, BMC Information Co-ordinator also reports that,

"The bug hasn't completely curtailed climbing activity, and the weather this week has been superb. Charlie Woodburn, despite feeling a bit peeky, yesterday established possibly Lundy's hardest route, an awesome overhanging crack line. Another casualty of the bug, Paul Harrison is busily working on the new Climbers' Club guidebook to the island, which should see the light of day next year. And Neil Dickson is currently removing bolts from some routes on Black Crag, with the intention of climbing the routes without fixed protection."

Oi! I was having breakfast, I don't really want to hear about pooing and spewing thanks very much.

"And Neil Dickson is currently removing bolts from some routes on Black Crag, with the intention of climbing the routes without fixed protection." And he has to *remove* the bolts to accomplish this? How does that make sense?

so that he can use the bolt holes as finger pockets? ;¬

Oh come on, don't tell me you think the bolts should stay?
