:great: Thought he'd send it today, he was tickling the belay yesterday. Now that t-shirt can finally get washed...

Afterwards he was dazed and confused and staggering around the catwalk so alamingly that Ackers had to carry him back to the car and give him the kiss of life - I heard

The Joker gets done fairly often. Are you confusing it with The Ace?

Adam Lincoln ticked Nuclear Transplant at Woodwell yesterday which I think is worth a mention.

Nice one Tan.

Gigantic at Wilton ground up'd today following a clean on abseil, by the illustrious Mr Lincoln. Best style of this route to date i believe.

Effort. Without trying to be a total tw4t, it's a pretty impressive feat to say the least, but how can you ground up a route you have already abseiled down?
