But Caff is claiming he specifically asked Steve to give him a little more time, a request that was ignored.

Yeah, at the end of the day, it's a real shame that two bona fide legends have fallen out, whatever the in's and out's of it all. I blame that shit Doyle but then again the copter pastiche was pretty hilarious.

I've just realised that by posting this, I have probably joined the ranks of the Cyberwankers, dammit.

Can’t blame me pal when I posted the pic it had been reported that there was no bad blood and Caff wasn’t too miffed and had given the OK.  :P pic was just a bit of fun , and it’s all gone belly up since .

CONFIRMED BEEF!

Doylo has played a blinder here. He must be raking in the followers since his picture is hosting the spat.

I’ll get rid of them again next week by posting a few baby pics.

That makes it even funnier in a way - confluence of the spheres or something? Good work on the pic, funny as sin.

Dunc - the only high command I'm familiar with is asking for the sound system to be turned up  ;D

That's a very understated headline for the FA of one of the Uk's hardest trad routes,

The longer this goes on, the prouder I am of my thread title.

In reality, its all turning into a bit of a shame. But in another reality, its also probably nothing compared to the bitterness of some of the rivalries in the past.

Exactly. My housemate just read the Peak Rock extract about ‘Ninth Life’, with Jerry and Woodward.

“Moffat was so incensed that he pinched such a plumb line that he never spoke to him again”

Then there are Dawes’ accusations against Fawcett for chipping that Millstone Route (Scritto’s was it?)

In retrospect these actions and confrontations add flavour to the history of climbing. It just seems quite vulgar when it’s happening live online, rather than through word of mouth or magazines after the fact.

Barrows nicked a first ascent from me twice. He still doesn’t know what I did in retaliation...

Someone should try and put online "No Big Cigar," the Crags article about the race for the first free ascent of Castellan. Literally espionage and car chases.

from Caff on Instagram: I've reread our comms Steve and I have been a twat. You were just being pushy and I thought I would have more time between work. I had put some fucking time and energy into that fucking route though

Maybe that puts the matter to bed.

Thanks ferret.

Caff contacted me. He is genuinely very upset but wants to put a line under this episode now to move on - but will no doubt be sore about for some time to come.

Please bear the above in mind and be sensitive re further posts. Thank you.

Pissed on his kneepad. Barrows thought it actually improved the smell.

Fair play to Caff, can imagine its gutting to have been so close but be pipped to the post even if he hadn’t been clear/pushy enough himself. But gracious of him nonetheless.

Hope he returns to do the 2nd ascent!

Exactly, this is the sort of “controversy” “characters” “passion” “irreverence” etc. that are supposed to only have existed in the good old days.  ::)

Ironic that it’s kicked off on Instagram given that’s routinely cited as the reason for this sort of thing’s supposed death- climbing must be one of very few aspects of modern life that are considered to have been made less acrimonious by social media.
