Can't believe these have never surfaced in any magazine I've seen, historic climber, great (rarely photographed) route and good photos.

Now I look at the pictures, Ron seems to have left a very nice plaid shirt on one of the lower runners. I never had Ron down as a plaid shirt kind of guy,

Nick Dixon, me, (Steve Lowe) and "Big" Al Williams at Gary Gibson's wedding. It doesn't get much more 80s.

An old climbing friend of mine sent me some slides recently from back in the 80s. Here's one demonstrating what icons of style we were: It's my good self (in red baseball cap) with him (Clive Davis) underneath Forecourt Crawler at Caley.


I accidentally clicked on the oldest post of this thread not the newest. Panton you are basically my 19 yr old stepson right now!

Ha, I went to school with Clive. He started after the rest of us and quickly overtook. Git! Bumped into him maybe 15 years later at Frogsmouth (the horror) and another 15 after that at the British fell relays. Still fast :)

Found one! Attempting Smoke On'T Watter in the mid-90s, complete with Boreal Aces, hideous trousers, troll harness (which was ace admittedly) and lots of hexes on chunky cord.

That's so bizarre. Fiend with hair and looking younger! I'd always assumed that Matt was born with a babies body and the head he has now and he's just grown into it.

Looks like you had a cheeky ab to brush and chalk the top holds  ;D

If I'd had a cheeky ab I probably wouldn't have been taking a load of hexes up  :lol:

I'm looking for an image I'm sure I had on my wall as a teenager:

Leo Houlding on the Prophet, circa 2001. I think it was a Berghaus advert, but it might have been a DMM one. He was wearing a pair of pink anasazis and doing a big right foot rockover. It was the kind of ad that would have been the back cover of a magazine, it's possible there was a poster form of it too.

Anyone got a copy they could scan for me? I've hunted the internet and as many old mags as I can but can't seem to find it.

Isn’t that on the back cover of one of the old Rockfax guides?

You're right, it's on the back of the old Western Grit guide. Mine's a bit scuffed up unfortunately.
