The olympics is every four years. Big deal.

Shark climbing the Oak. That would be a once in a lifetime kind of event.

I think having parents who are dedicated climbers is a hugely underrated factor in becoming a very good climber though. It's certainly one that loads of megawads have in common.

Even if you climb 8c, you probably want to climb 9a. It never ends...

Your dad was/ is a climber though, right?

Fiend was on the Catwalk  :o What with Will being there last time Iím fully expecting Dolly, Tomtom and Lagerstarfish to make an appearance next time. Itís like the ghosts of Christmas past.

No one starts anything from the bottom there so they.. always doing stuff from that ledge.
