Nice pic. Froggatt seems to be a good location in the snow.

Was it Macleod or Berry who said something about Slingshot being nigh on impossible if you're tall? I remember thinking at the time it sounded like bullsh*t...

Was looking (from the floor) at Chequers Groove to the right and that looks like it has some decent holds, though chalk all over the place...

No one has to jump unless your a complete midget or have zero tension. Your right foot stays on nicely!

Ryan gave me and mike the kick up the ass we needed to get our balls out and stop being fannies!

Would be well keen to get on these, if I get home from work alive today...

Pads wise think we had about 7 or 8 but you could def do it with 5 or 6. Mike did chequers a few days before, me and ryan didnt get on it, am keen though. It is a good place to go when all this snow is about but not sure with the melting now.

Where does the boulder problem finish? Is it on the ledge with the little tree on?

James Kassidy has done another one of the Grampians long traverses, Hate Machine 8b+. Also look like he did PHM Eve Rve 8b+ on the same day.

The poor bastard is taking a pasting from the 8a.wanker forum lot thou. Another case of is it a boulder or is it a route, either way bon effort.

Did he ever run the 100m by any chance? Because he practically sprints most of this....
