I've got some tales (perhaps tall....) to tell, Andy W.

Back in 1990 I was thinking about the novelty ascents of Kachoong i.e Eating bananas at the lip etc

So I thought I can out-do that, so I soloed this overhang/arÍte up right of Iron Void, I cruised up to the lip and had a shave there (with a cut-throat razor) and then floated up the arete., I thought is was perhaps 23.

Well blow me down, the next day a couple of pommie geezers bolted the thing, struggled up it and called it "The Flashing Blade". I assumed they must have seen my ascent, but the 'toe rags' didn't acknowledge my first ascent.

SOLD! Hilarious. Well done jdb.Signed copy No1 please.
Blimey! That - according to the Chanel 9 reporter on my video - is 'a hundred metres above the ragged, jagged earth ,,, and a certain ragged, jagged DEATH'! I think you may've been off-route. Or am I?
But don't blame me - kindly point your accusatory finger at a certain Mr Nicholas White. I just OS-Flash repeated it - thought it was only 22 TBH (P'd-as-a -fart at the time so don't really remember as it was over in seconds) - but it gave him the route name, Ha!
Is that your Sika at the 'ard bit ,,, or am I confused again?
Cheers,
Nobody.

I just couldn't resist 'taking the P', Andy W.

All jokes aside, I would be 'keen as mustard' to acquire one of your books.

I sort of followed your climbing career (from afar) in Mountain magazine; I recall some old black and white photos of you (in Wales?) back in the day.

Hope the book sells well.
