Wow, great to see history in the making. I've done several routes (some new, some second ascents) with Rowland. He's now in his 80's and still going strong. Absolute legend, if not for the quality of his lines, if not for the number of routes, then just for his enthusiasm

It's nice to know that even the greats sometimes screwed up their ropework ;)
