The news report that has appeared on UKclimbing is very badly written in my opinion. A news story should report fact and should be objective. It seems to me that Mark Reeves has written an entirely subjective account of Neil Dyer and what happened. I don't understand why. The facts of the situation are more than impressive!!! Just why all the social commentary was included I don't know.
Adam; there is a thread entitled Parisella's Cave condition report which MIGHT hve the answers you are looking for, it is here
On many parts I would agree with you here, the piece I wrote originally read something like 'Neil Dyers solo Untouchables in lunch hour'. I was ask to provide some back ground for the item. I personally think Neil one of the nicest people in climbing and has a great approach to climbing and deserves reconigtion for his many achievements.
I will apologise to Neil when I see him, or if you check in here 'sorry neil, I genuinely thought you had climbed Font 8b', now your just a punter.
