Excellent. Good luck to the lad, be interesting to see how he gets on with Steve's routes.

Giggleswick is just down the road isn't it? A true wads opinion on a Godskins horror would be tres interesting...

I think at this point a ukc style comment like "I hope he doesn't just spend his time clipping bolts, but goes to Stanage/tries Echo Wall/Birkett's routes" is in order...

That's the thing about UKC; no matter how much you try to parody them, the parody always falls short of the reality.
From UKC I give you: "I reckon it would be more interesting to throw him at the Vice."

Yep, that'd put him in his place...

Is this really news? Headline: "climber goes to crag" shocker.

Hopefully he can crush something worthy and make some genuine news.

I agree. Either he does something which will be news, or he won't do something which will still be news.

Has someone pissed on your chips today Dave, you're being a right grouch?

He has an as yet undiagnosed damp problem but I don't know if it's to do with piss and / or chips.

Yep. We have been after him coming over for ages. Now he has. News enough for me, and a lot of others i suspect.

This is  :great: news,not just for the UK sport climbing scene, but also for the fact that Steve's routes will get some well deserved world wide press.

It'll be well interesting to see how the UK grades compare to abroad, in Ondra's opinions.

What's news is that Adam Lincoln hasn't namedropped him yet. Unless the "we've been after him coming over" is the royal "we" and indicitive of a personal invite  ;)

I agree with Nik, get him Violently Breeding...

I haven't had the pleasure of meeting him yet Fiend. Just him and Moffatt have eluded me.  ;)

Judging by the relative complextions of the two adams I'd say we could rule out them ever having been at the same crag, or indeed tanning salon, at the same time.

I wait for a barrage of abuse but one thing that id be just as interested in is if someone pointed him in the direction of a long steep traverse just over the border, with instructions to try and not fall off first go!
