We Gribbles have a keen sense of history and it's not gone unnoticed that Nov 2013 is the 50th anniversary of the Climbing at the Mount.
Of course there'll be a mass ascent of Introductory Route with a cake on top, party hats and speeches........

...... Won't there?

Plans are nothing, planning is everything......

Is that the right link? It seems to be a ref to Berts climbing at the Mount.
I'm talking about year zero.....

Sorry,
According to Bert's letter in Argus, the reason he's coming back in November 2013 is because it's the 50th anniversary.
Don't understand why you couldn't pick that up MisterGribble, you being a widely read, discerning sort of chap.

I don't get Argus any more, I was 'sent down' from the VCC some years ago.....

Still, any excuse for a party eh?

Not gone unnoticed at all. Plans are underfoot and more will be revealed in the very near future. Stay tuned and be aware. I could be sourcing for volunteers also......

Cheers

AND, it is also click over time for the V.C.C.'s 60th anniversary. I am just trying to think of a song that will cover it? What do you reckon Tracey, group photo for all to ponder over in a 100 year time.

Yep, VCC 60th is also an element of the celebrations that are being planned

Perhaps an auspicious time to call an end to such stupidity and let the poor mountain alone?

Note to self, put as a footnote on the party invites, 'drinkers, drifters and hero's need not attend.

Doesn't that also exclude you? or have you changed Mr Gribble, or is it because you wrote 'and' and not 'or'.

And you must know that I am quite willing to crash a party :)
