Bock is no stranger to calling a Brit a bullshitter, but I haven't seen anything on line where he suggests that RS hadn't climbed it.Koyomoadas entourage were at the crag, Dai was in the car park.

This mass doubting of a respected climber seems a regular thing now.
Quote from: shark on November 09, 2010, 02:16:18 pmAny suggestions how one would go about doing that tactfully ? You have a public website with 7 pages of posts accusing him of lying and you're worried about how to speak to him tactfully? You're probably well past that stage. In the circumstances I think at the very least he should be contacted to give him an opportunity to respond.

Moderation policyWe like freedom of expression and are proud of our light moderation policy so the overly-sensitive may wish to click away elsewhere. We think the overall tone of the site (friendly, humourous, irreverent) is a more important focus than fretting over specific content. However posters identified who troll, threaten, spam, promote hatred (sexism, racism, etc) or post illegal content will be banned and have their posts removed. As on all web forums, the views and opinions expressed by posters are their own and UKB has no responsibility for them.
The views weren't Shark's, but he was still proposing to do some digging and phoning round. The website is still his and Toby's.
Whilst it is lovely that Shark was concerned about how to approach Rich tactfully, it was, I think, a secondary concern to contacting him at all.
Anyway, it doesn't matter, Doyle spoke to him yesterday and I did last night.
Man, this is depressingIf Rich does get to read all this i'm sure it will just re affirm his decision to leave climbing. Adios gossip mongers.
I find statements like this ironic considering he instigated and contributed to an internet gossip hunt of Ben Heason. http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?n=157884&v=1
After all recent goings on with Ben heason,i ask on a well read forum, would anyone who has witnessed Ben heason climb anthing of upper difficulty please contact me via email through this site or a post on this thread. It is important that a full name is given otherwise important information will not be taken seriously.Please keep this post free of rants and uninformed information. It is important that anyone who has important information speaks out and help to bring out the truth.
in my opinion it would be better to stop further postinguntil rich comes forward and says his piece or somebody has some kind of meaningful communication with him thats worth passing on.
