Isnít 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.

I hate that guide! It somehow makes Commander Energy look average on the front cover...

Some cracking shots of The Prophet.

Especially love the ones of Geoffrey Boycott on it!

Iíve just taken photo of it on my phone. Is it possible to post directly on here now? As I donít have photo hosting at the mo.
If not I can WhatsApp it to you if you PM me your number Matt? (Assuming PMs are working)

My photo of CE inside makes it look great though.

Grant St, Stoke-on-Trent, probably around 1983. Claudie Dunn (as she was to become) climbing. Me watching in my best Joy Division old man's overcoat from the charity shop. This was a great venue.

Awesome. Everything about this is so wonderfully 80s, even the sky has a gloriously industrial lustre and tone.

Excellent! I see your Stoke on Trent and raise you an Otterspool Prom, Liverpool.

Excellent. I was just about to comment on the Calmas when I scrolled down and saw that you'd mentioned them.

Sure I posted this before, but my old Flikr thingy is gone so it will be too I guess.

Anyway, by 1989, we had much better walls, Ron Hills and better shoes (Flys, and I cannot remember who made them, but compared to the ďB4sĒ they replaced, were like little miracles of sticky goodness):
