Steve Findlay on the cover attempting to free Pinkginsane. Inside a photo essay of Avon Gorge routes inc. Central Buttress, Think Pink, Malbogies, Catholics, Ladder Of Desire. Plus a brilliant article on Tony Willmott which deserves to be re-published. Kept this edition because I started climbing at Avon.

Wow! I suppose that's Hazel's father.

Was the Tony Willmott article the one by Al Baker - Stone Child? That was superb. There's also a superb one by Steve Dean. Put together, they give a fascinating portrait of Tony Willmott. The original stone child, bless him.

Yes Mick, Al Baker - Stone Child, with some great photos. Only managed to do one of his routes (Amanita), which the guidebook suggested is now (E4) less serious than the original aided version!

But still serious, I've heard. These are routes you remember.
