T'was on my mate Neal's blog http://nmcquaid.blogspot.com/. I believe he'd been out tradding that day with a Brian (aka Smacks?) who I don't know.

Since I noticed the big spike in traffic to the blog from this post (nothing like having 50 extra visitors in a day!), I may as well confirm that I was the guy  climbing with Brian (known as Smacks to all the Irish  :)  ). Crap quality of pic, but gave a good impression of the line. Nice effort by the way Nige, you were topping out when we left so didn't get to pass on congrats.

yes! i'm very pleased! gabri is a nice guy, and it's a shame the italian federation doesn't support him much!!!
to give an idea, i had asked him some info about a video, and yesterday he replied "excuse me for the video, i am in the jura, i have just done AD and am a bit shocked still so i can't help you with the vid right now"
legend. he's going to party hard now.

Word has reached me that balding Xtreme sport mentalist and ADHD sufferer Paul Reeve has done Unjustified  :o

I've been summoned to the Foundry to prostrate myself before his magnificence

(Someone downgrade it please)

Don't know but it looks as if they have some excellent footage of it using the helicam thing http://basecamp.mammut.ch/en/basecamp-news

Check out the 2nd shot of someone standing at the top of Masters.

So it was them who covered it in chalk. That camera is neat though.

Lama's style on Parthian will decide. Ground-up, they live. Headpoint, they die.

Nah, let's have them all killed anyway. On a more serious note, if this graffiti really was down to the Mammut guys, the brand needs to know that is is totally unacceptable. We could do that before we kill them.

That footage is amazing!

Can't wait to see the full film!

Some uber talented wad ticking easy routes on the grit. Hardly newsworthey and not all that impressive. Now Paul Reeve climbing 8c that is seriously impressive and I suspect something a lot would have laughed at thought of for even suggesting in years past. A fantastic effort from the 2nd most motivated climber in the UK (next to Keith S), certainly more impressive than Ste Mac climbing another 9a.

Congratulatipns Paul :great:

Pretty impressive if he did parthian with cataracts though, which from the video appears to be the case.
