Hey Warwick,
Well said! And thanks for all the inspiring lines you put up back in the day, the fact that so few 'modern' climbers are prepared to attempt them is, IMHO, testament to their 'old-school' quality. Love ya work!

It is sad that many people have a wrong view of the style of your ascents. I think often it is more a reflection on them - "He must have pre-inspected and rehearsed it lots, (because I'm not prepared to step up, so how could he have done it any other way)" - that sort of thing kinda pisses me off a bit, particularly when not backed up by facts or action . . .

Thanks for the bit of perspective on these routes, and the inspiration for them - they have been on my list for sometime and hope to get on them before i get too old, hopefully is an acceptable style (at least to myself) though that is getting harder as the years pass. Im sure they will still be a lot of fun . . . .


PS And if i haven't said it already; thanks and kudos to Paul for not sanitising the route.
