Vincent Pochon on the first ascent of The Big Island (8C)
No mention of the book though.
Yeah I had a double-take when I read that; using a book to 'lengthen your leg'! Ethics police will have a field day, surely.
It's in there.
Who authored the book!? I feel they should be acknowledged! Clearly unethical otherwise.
The cheeky addition of the book helps this rise so far above the standard Hard Climber Climbs Hard Rock story. Any chance of a follow-up of some details on what sort of book? And would it help on your average E1? Also, if UKC can source a sprinkling of entirely-disproportionate ethical beef, even better. ;-) Thanks, D.
