He's that tit who came on here saying it was ok to steal people's quickdraws from sport routes. If he's saying that something is ok then (as in this case) the opposite is probably the case.

To be fair to franco, he did say somewhere in the midst of it all that its a shit idea to dry tool millstone and that he was just playing devils advocate.

To quote the man himself:
Quote
The main thing i'm trying to ask people is 'Why is it wrong?' I think it is wrong and I have explained why I think that. But, I get the sense on here that many people think it's wrong plainly because it's gritstone and near to their pleasant little homes in sheffielf, where as if it's up some hill in scotland somewhere it doesn't matter.

When I first opened that thread I expected a unanimous consensus that doing this is completely wrong and there would be no arguement. Not quite the case it seems...

Tell me about it.  Its astounding.

Well the main culprit is not the brightest of tacks.


Does he have a tendency to mix his metaphors as well?  ;D

Sorry

Callum, if you're reading this thread - the best thing that could happen to you right now is if you were to take a little lead lob and break a minor bone, something that left no lasting damage, just enough to stop you being an arrogant nob-head with your axes in places where you've no purpose in being.  The time off could also allow some sense to enter the space presently occupied by your ego. You're giving the majority of winter climbers a terrible image.

From a devoted winter climber and occasional drytooler (in the right areas).

What were they doing at Millstone anyway ? ..... Surely the Downfall must be in better condition if you want to get your axes out .....

 :agree:

I've never really got this whole dry tooling business anyway... (the name gives it away to me  - not the dry part or the ing either..)
 
My winter climbing days are long behind me - but for me the best part was that thwack of an axe as it stuck into perfect ice etc.. - when conditions were right it was like climbing with a jug for every hold... all this scrapy, torquey shizzle...  :shrug:

bah humbug, I'm off to find my toothbrush and clean my beastmaker.... in a fully smug an superior manner of course...

Ahem, has no one got their troll-o-meter out?

Mine's twitching away and I wouldn't be surprised if this is the next round of the cool climber jape.

Anyway, my concern is this, does the belayer hold a valid SPA?
Well it was HVS in my day!

 :agree: .......

So  , whoever ,  was either daft enough to climb up the  Deliverance boulder in the dark , or else  climbed it so slowly that  darkness fell whilst he/she was still stuggling to reach the finishing holds and he/she  just didn't notice ..... Screams of bollox to me .....

I don't think it's a troll at all. They are just a pair of fucking egocentric pricks closely followed by the some of morons on the UKC thread 'playing devils advocate' in a pitiful attempt to justify quite staggering and incoherent displays of ignorance and idiocy.

It's genuine Tom, much as I wish it wasn't because it's still got me wound up inside. I'm in the photo FFS.

That's fucking awful!

They knew full well that's what would happen and they still went and did it!, if they didn't think it would scar the rock then they're more brain dead than I first thought! Idiots!
A mind like a bowl of custard.......
