Are you deliberately looping these to get more hits? I click on the news link in your article and it takes me to the news page, if I click on the read more link under the article it takes me back here. So in fact I can't read more. There's actually more merry-go-round fun because if I click on the Planetfear link they same pretty much the same thing and then have a link to read more at UKClimbing News, which takes me back to the same spot. And yes I'm aware of this behaviour from the past, it just seemed to particularly annoy me today.

Yes sorry Toby, usually that doesn't happen. I usually just have an excerpt in the forums with the full report on the News page.

Well with all of the climbing magazine editors in the UK 'retiring', can we assume the market was heard?
