The report prompted some interesting forum discussion and Al Williams has sent in some superb images from the 'Stag Do' that is discussed in the thread.
Nick Dixon contributed to the forum discussion saying:
"I am so pleased that Lupino Lane is receiving attention that I have been moved to register!!
I did the thing 2 weeks prior to Andy's stag do , when Noel did Reivers, I did it again eventually at the stag do when there were about 30 accomplished climbers trying it or watching. (Nobody else was successful but it was Joe Brown who came closest). Richie Heep and Johnny were video-ing and I have a copy. I called it Lupino Lane (who performed a similar stunt in 1921) and it is my writings about it in Stone Play. We didn't do mats so George caught us sometimes as we missed."
