I personally think that this is fine, in principle - Simon's calendar is a commercial venture but is an enourmously positive promotional tool for the sport of climbing. I reckon anyone trying to make a living from activities deriving from the sport of climbing can do with all the help they can get.

Only issue I see is one of fairness - in the context of formal sponsors of Chockstone (RH?) who presumably pay for their advertising. But, the post into a thread in the forum by Simon is a very minor plug and probably doesn't compare to the coverage of the sponsor

I'm goonna buy a copy of the calendar regardless, and was pleased to hear the new edition is available.
