And nice one Mike, I really enjoyed following your VS quest (despite knowing none of the routes), and more generally found your attitude towards your accident, injury, and rehab; and then how you found such enjoyment in climbing through your recovery, really inspiring.

I certainly remember the original Flash Wall post Mike. Great to see this coming full circle.

Ticklists sometimes get grief for encouraging 'consuming' but they can be such brilliant motivational tools when used to record progress from one place to another. Nice one cheque.

So grateful for the people offered to belay me today. Went to do some routes on a shunt. But these kind people gave me a belay as I was on my own.
Totally made my day.  Thank goodness there’s people like that in climbing.

Yay! I don't have breast cancer - got the results of a biopsy from last week back earlier today (charming consultant rang me directly. The whole process has been very smooth and efficient).

NNFN - horrible events here in Copenhagen yesterday evening, only the second (non-terrorist) mass-shooting in the country's history.

Phew! Great news, Andy. Not so much the other stuff but no reason you shouldn't enjoy the relief.

Happy for that Andy!
Denmark put on a beautiful show for the Tour ...and then this. At least these things are incredibly rare and 'thoughts and prayers' don't need to be reeled out every other week.

Today I have done 100 days of stretching in a row despite being sick with long covid. Minimum session is 5 mins to get the tick, but I usually do nearer 10, maximum seems to be 30 mins. There were definitely times that I'd happily have given up, bearing in mind that some days I am too sick to leave the house, but I just about managed to get it done. This seems to be just the right amount of exercise that I can cope with and it actually has some use for climbing, double win!

I can now put my whole palm flat on the floor from a front fold, can sometimes get my calves to touch the floor in a butterfly stretch and have added 30cms to my side splits. Well chuffed.
