Your right what Paul Robinson did in a few hours on the grit is pretty much the same as your average weekend warrior in the UK.

And as for Ondras messing about on the limestone, hardly newsworthy, just a normal weekend in the dales.

Much as I would like to take Megos's freak Joker schooling by a humble married father of two with a full time job and no innate talent as indicative of UK standards on the world stage, even I am not that daft.

I will keep milking it though.

And so you should Dave. Us mortals need to have small victories once in a while.

I schooled Moony on yman sit start years ago but if i close my eyes i can see it like it was yesterday.

He set himself up for the subtle self promotion about 50 posts back... ;)

Didn't get one for Xmas? Seriously though, nice one for putting the Milky Bar Kid in his place. He had it coming...

Shame it broke, that move was amazing. Glad it still goes though.

Mr Katz did Voyager today very quickly (think he had a session on it before the the sit was done)! Pretty impressive, considering he has been at the top of the UK game for the last 10 years and always held down a full time job.. RESPECT!

Basically a 2 move 8C if I understand correctly. The mind boggles.

I heard it's easy if your short.
