Would like to take issue with a certain friend and fellow punter about the issue of getting a grip.
What is there to hold onto other than holds and social convention?
DON't try too hard you may pull something!
lots of love Punter Pat

They can still tell when you're asleep and come in and move the furniture around.
You can prove this by lining up all the edges of the furniture and counting all the corners in the room before you go to sleep. There should be just as many corners when you wake up.

The thing i like best about the miaow walk is if you look away from the crag the awe of the cove sort of arches out in a semi circle and then runs into the landscape to form a circle. Its rad man.
Ah, the undervalued nature of nature, i love it, even a walk suits me.

Much as I hate to drag this thread back to vaguely Nik's Wall related stuff I have researched these new Chas Cooper problems on t'interweb a bit more and come up with the following:
The Whack 7C+
The description for this problems location suggests that it is almost certainly at Buckstones/Nont Sarahs. This is almost certainly the case as in the description it also mentions that the other problem of note in a large prow. This is Pig In A Pokey/Okey Dokey (and a selection of silly link-ups) as shown in these videos






The Whack is a problem that I think I remember seeing, it is just down and left of the prow, obvious sit start in a little recess, hard pull onto the face then easy finish. I didn't try it when I did the other problems as it is a bit eliminate (footblocks to the left and right) but now I'm inspired I'll give it a whirl. I'll try and head over there today and get a photo.

Vengance
I really have no idea where this quarry would be, up the road from Mumps roudabout? Looking at Google earth doesn't seem to reveal much so before heading off on an epic quest to Oldham I thought I'd ask if anybody has any concrete knowledge on this one?

The Whack 7C+

That's the thing we looked at and dismissed as being a bit daft?  Certainly looked hard though, assuming it's the same thing.

Don't ask anybody if they can "show you the way to 'Old 'em".

The Whack

It is indeed the thing we looked at, had a feel of the holds and then dismissed as a bit daft and eliminate. It is eliminate, but is actually a rather good problem. Bit of a one move wonder.
This is the problem:

You start with your left on a dirty sharp sidepull crimp thus:

Right on a poor small slopey thingy-ma-bob:

Smear your left foot on the lip pull on and then pop up for a good right hand:


The left starting hold is VERY sharp, I brushed up the holds a bit then swazzled a flash but on reaching the top discovered this:

Thats just from pulling on once, multiple goes on this are not an option.

Anyway it's a nice move, the finish is scay when wet as it's covered in green slime but in the dry would be very easy. I don't flash 7C+, but maybe I was just lucky? I can imagine it feeling nails if you every time you try it you get a go or two then have to wait two weeks for your finger to heal. Fuck it, I'll take 7C+ until Jim downgrades it to 7A...

I know this doesn't belong in significant repeats really, sorry.
