so a bit of a YYFY for me, second week in a row that I've managed to go climbing (after a year and a half break) albeit indoors at the depot after dislocating my toe last year and de-gloving it in the process, then messing up my knee and achilles as a result, then messing it it further skiing (falling on rails) this year.
Did I feel fat incredibly weak and out of shape? Yes, but was I actually dragging my fat frame up a wall and enjoying it? Yes, yes fucking yes.

How did you deglove your toe while dislocating it??

YYFY, got out on SUP on Loch of Skene yesterday morning before work. Only 10 mins from work, and I was warm even without a shirt on. If was like glass, and just me and the swans out. Sublime.

I was doing karate and it ended up sidewise and dislocated so far out that the skin split in a large ring around the bottom of the toe.

Over 10 years ago, in October 2007, I went to Almscliff for the first time. It was a misty day; we didn't have a guide; I started up Western Front thinking it was Great Western. I cottoned on after the roof section and lowered from the inverted Y.
Over the years I had a further 3 goes, only thinking to dog around and figure out the crux on the last of these.
Last night, as England went to a World Cup penalty shoot out, I climbed the Western Front of Almscliff. As I pulled over the top, the jubilant screams from the nearby farm confirmed victory after the best of 5.

Does this mean you like football now?

I'm making an exception for the World Cup.

Just got my copy too. What a lovely spread of choss and class.

Not sure if you have already somewhere but Iíd love to hear more about your Caveman and Flaming Drambuie solos, Dave? The history section gives due credit but doesnít go into much detail, thatís if there is any, I can understand if these things are black and white and read all over.

Is the South Devon book in the same landscape layout as the Dartmoor one? I bought that when I was first out of hospital and the combination of having to lie flat on my back and a broken hand meant I couldnít read any of it!  :boohoo:

Am I right in thinking that all the climbing in Devon is covered by this, the Dartmoor guide and the forthcoming North Devon & Cornwall book, or is there more?
