I've been following this and Leo's free routes with a very slack jaw...

This would have to be up there for the hardest multipitch once sent and the grades listed correct?

15 out of the 19 pitches are 5.13 and above, 6 of these are 5.14!

I'm pretty sure that is the line me and a mate free-climbed years ago but we didn't write it up because it wandered around a bit.

and they even had to add some extra bolts... wimps. Maybe robertsonja could go and chop them for you.

Tommy certainly didn't waste any time getting himself a new wife, after divorcing Beth Rodden.

I always thought they were the perfect all American apple pie climbing couple. Apparently not.

>kjorgeson: Pitch 9 is done. Now the real business begins: 5.14b ish, 5.13d ish, 5.14b ish, 5.14c ish, 5.14c ish

I love the way he makes it sound like bit to get where they are was pretty easy...

Re: The Tommy and Becca Blogspot:

My hope is that Tommy falls in love with Kevin and that the wholesome 'becca is jailed for stealing a mirror from the Curry Company Store. I wonder if Tommy really divorced Beth? More likely the other way around.

If you are referring to 'Life with the Caldwell's' site Becca says;
>They made it look smooth as butter from my view, though they both said it felt awkward and definitely got the heart pumping while gripping underclings with tenuous feet traversing right at the bottom.

... Doesn't sound easy to me!

Still recovering from the opening salvo of the Caldwell blog.

"Im looking forward to another morning of waking up next to my husband with the warm sun and a bird's-eye-view"

Excuse me. I have to lean over the rail.again.

And what's with the "bit" thing. "..bit they this" and "bit they that"? Is she a Kiwi phonetic speller?

You have forgotten what young love is like?

Btw; I agree, it comes across as quite smitten, (i.e. too gushy for me, even if others may thrive on it!).

I think we need One Day Hero to do a new version of the Caldwell blog. I'm sure he will amp up any bedroom scenes.

Meh, Mr. Caldwell's private life is his own damn business, I don't care.

Although, I have a strange urge to go and buy a new Sterling rope for some reason after Kevin's last tweet.
