  • "There's no cure for being a c#nt"
A week or two ago I heard a report of someone filming themselves on T Crack with a drone and shouting "CUNT!" on each failed attempt

I initially wrote this off as typical Sheffield grit boulderers superiority chat; probably trying to make fun of southerners like they do round here.

However, this week I was near there myself and could hear the gentle whine of what I think was a drone. It was pretty quiet compared to the drones I am used to hearing around Burbage valley and Stanage, so I didn't feel my usual need to stride over and start an argument - in fact, I was intrigued to see if this was the Cunty Drone Man. I asked Dolly if he could hear the whining possible drone noise - he could.

The main thing we could hear was a willow warbler singing away -  a bit like a male chaffinch with a funny accent. All of a sudden we heard the familiar THWUMP of a body hitting foam - swiflty followed by a loud "CUNT!".

This was too much for us. We lay face down on our mats crying with laughter at the realisation that Cunty Drone Man was probably real.

As it happens, we were having too much fun climbing rough brown rocks to investigate further; and actually it felt better to leave the myth uninvestigated.

Has anyone else heard Cunty Drone Man?

How does he keep his drone so quiet?

Has he done T Crack yet?

Is there more than one CDM?

I am not interested in identifying or "outing" CDM; rather, I think we should celebrate him in all his cuntitude.

This still makes me laugh too much :)
We heard a goldfinch and raven as well although we would probably have heard that anyway as it was so loud

If CDM is reading this and you haven't done TCrack yet, I would like to offer up this for next time you are on it
"Come on Cunty! You've got this!"

I just Googled. Perhaps CDM is using something like this https://shotkit.com/quietest-drones/

It's great that drones are getting quieter since for me it's just the noise that pisses me off.

I'm all for a bit off passion and emotional investment - I'm rootin' for Cunty too! (but I guess best to avoid offending passers by).

You suspect this might have been a copycunt?

As long as they aren't playing loud CDM through a BT speaker, I for one support their efforts.

Did you typo EDM or actually mean Christian Dance Music? Which might be amongst the most terrifying things Google has ever thrown at me.

Sometimes though a cultural moment leads independent individuals to make uncannily similar expressions of great artistic genius or intellectual leaps forward.

Think of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci; or Leibniz and Newton; or Wallace and Darwin; or Kalecki and Keynes.

Cunty Dance Music, an offshoot of EDM.

Can you you blind taste the difference between evain and volvic?

Drone or merely a portable airflow cooling device? They're equally in fashion and the tree coverage above t crack doesn't make for a good cutaway.


Its just occurred to me that a close friend formerly of this parish has a house in spitting distance from Robin Hoods and can be quite hard on himself, with cvnt being the go to chastisement. I'll enquire

Ooh, I hadn't thought of it being a fan. I was going on the previous report.

I'm not sure I've actually heard a fan at the crag yet, so wouldn't know without looking

Wow! A thread for adult men to -ostensibly- find amusement in typing the c-word and variations thereof.

UKB truly at its best.

What exceptional wit you demonstrate Tom, that response makes possibly even less sense than had you simply written, the equally original, “so’s your mum.”

I trust Stone will now call you out for being a despicable bully and remonstrate with you, as per the other thread.

That's all well and good, but how does Cunty Drone Man compare to his possible arch nemesis or even alter-ego Droney Cunt Man?? Slithering into your quiet, peaceul, multiple-angle filmed in 4K HD via SurroundDrone(tm) sending session and blethering on his inane droning monologue about useless micro-beta, esoteric conditions fussiness, arbitrary and arcane problem rules, and something tedious about "Back when I used to warm-up on this..."

Which is worse? Are they ever seen together? If they meet will it be a catastrophic matter vs anti-matter implosion of cuntitude??
