However I could see the artyfarty aspect too, and that has it's own kind of 'cool'*.

What the hell was that all about?
Some guy climbed a route called Indian Face... some other guy top-roped it first, then soloed it.... and in between the FA drew a picture of "two climbers on a route" - which looked very much like someone spreading their legs & a dick&balls squiggle.. 6.20 - look for it!

Painting a mural on Cloggy would not have increased his popularity much either!
