Yes it's all of the sat down talking bit.

There's a bit more (30-40mins) of footage with Simon and Gaskins in the shed on his woodie that will go up later

My palpitations might finally cease (N.B. I'm not kidding) and like Dave, I dare not click the link. Perhaps best saved for Christmas day as a present....

I reckon there's lot of people 'clicking the link' as I can't get it to work beyond 0.22.

Never mind, something to look forward to tonight - can't wait!

This is brilliant!!! Great insight into the man and the myths. I hope he keeps it up and gets back to his 2005 levels.  :bow: :2thumbsup: Congrats to all concerned in the production

:agree:

He is also very lean (even at the time of "stick it"). More build like an endurance athlete than the typical powerhouses of today (Woods, JWP, Shauna, ...).

Looked to have a similar build to Steve Mac I thought

True, though Ste Mac might be a little be bulkier. Amazing how much power and tension is in these relatively small muscles. :punk:

Done looking. In short we had the myth, now most of us learn to know a very nice person. Really liked it a lot!!

A great interview UKB, thank you  :beer2:

And an injury-free climbing career, that's got to be his greatest feat!

What a lovely man. Really enjoyed that.

When he was talking about Brandenburg Gate I just thought noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo when he described how close he got. I didn't realise he's got that close.

Nice one to all involved. Simon even managed to keep an audibly straight face (I was expecting a cough or something) when John talked about doing Austrian Oak!

What I would say to all the doubters about his ascents is - haters go home.... Johnny G lives.
