Good to see Chaz still out climbing... https://twitter.com/Charles80641832/status/1247992761242071040?s=20
I despair. If those people are reading this, you're all selfish cunts
Hard to tell. Is he wearing trainers/approach shoes? And he's got his dog with him? So he took his dog for a walk, saw a little overhang and pottered up it?
When I’m out cycling I try to blow snot on every dog walker who has driven to out to walk their dog.In the words of the Spanish Inquisition God will sort out the innocent.
I agree that posting a video is daft. But he probably hasn't seen UKB. If somebody doesn't look at climbing groups on social media they probably don't know which way the wind is blowing. For all I know he could have loaded up his Caddy with 5 pads and driven an hour to get there; or it could be a scruffy block a 10 minute walk from his house that he can monkey up in his walking shoes. On the Lancashire Rock Revival Facebook group they're sending photos of people climbing to the police!

I'm uncomfortable with the amount of vitriol I've seen online.I don't think hurling abuse at other climbers is helpful, either for the current situation (since when did calling people names achieve anything positive?) or long-term, when the web will retain a lasting record that climbers have painted themselves in a bad light.
There were 3 people bouldering at the tor yesterday, I think there justification is that they are living in there vans (there are 2) in the layby. The water baliff lives 3 doors down from me and is concerned about where there shitting
Which climbers were/are basking in that “bad light” do you think?The name callers or the posters? I know what I feel, rightly or wrongly:Climber A/ Called someone a bad name.Climber B/ Failed to exercise self control, for a few weeks, in national crisis and then posted it on social media to encourage others to do the same and/or invite criticism and ire.
With apologies if I'm being naive or coming across as insensitive, i think its very likely that most climbers living in vans in the UK (cant be that many anyway, its not a 'thing' here like in Europe or the US) have parents, friends or other family in the UK where they could at least park the van nearby, or on the drive. Thats what they should do.
Its an interesting point actually. I suppose it helps to reassure the online climbing community that they're doing the right thing by not climbing and should continue to do so?
spent an extra 10 min in the supermarket because they wanted to buy some alcohol and easter eggs... despite the fact that neither are essential.
