That's pretty amusing Grurper. Bringing Pussy Cats into the mix. Ha ha. It seems we will never get a straight answer on who did the manufacturing (to Stench) - and by now it's history, but one thing is for sure: whoever it was clearly lacked any vision, or at least any basic climbing technique. Anyone without a blindfold would realise that it can be climbed without the chipped hold at all - apart from the chipper obviously! They even wire brushed out the footers in the top section. My only surprise is that they didn't paint them green and rig an in-situ TR on it.
