Dave the Rascist has done La Prou - a very good effort. Well basic, and well hard. Nice work (but I bet that poor boulder has endured all manner of verbal abuse whilst you've been trying it)  ;)

as amusing as it is to some people calling dave "dave the racist" isn't particularly funny on a website that is read the world over. people could leap to conclusions, and he does climb in a lot of places.
nice one dave

Wow hes done the sit start to le prou?  Thats an awesome line that.  Pretty hard for 8b though, or maybe you mean without the stone that is sometimes round there?

Well said Dense. I posted something along these lines a while back. It seemed to have died out, but obviously is back in vogue.

I agree, he needs a new nickname. How about Dave The Bigot?

Sometimes you have to be a bigot to bring down a bigger bigot.

Fair comment. I often forget that people other than those who post on here read this.
I quite like Angry Dave instead. Shame I can't change my previous post.....

Dave on La Prou: http://www.moonclimbing.com/La-Proue-by-David-Mason-n-946.html

Worth reading those Moon blogs. Nice to see Brits crushing abroad too.

What about Dave "static-1-5-9/8b-monster-and-also-sometimes-a-little-bit-irate" Mason? Kind of rolls off the tongue.

Alan Cassidy has done Cous Cous in a day.   

He sounds appropriately chuffed.  Makindromo was my first exposure (as in looking at, not climbing) to big steep Euro limestone and I still remember the shock of the new.
