Mr Caldwell has made and is probably still making sponsorship dollars and gaining publicity from making his private life rather public. When he was married to Beth Rodden, they were marketed as the All-American climbing couple.

That said, I don't care either.

She sounds like my kind of girl.

I'm not a massive consumer of climbing magazines and gossipy web-sites but I'm absolutely astonished that this one flew under my radar.

Would have thought the split to have been massive news and bandied all over the climbing media.

So whats the dirt? I never saw it in the mags or online either. Tommy is a bit like Princess Di, the press generally don't say bad things. But as we know Dianna was a grubby money slut.

Come on davidn, he makes a living out of the media, he is fair game. What did I say that was out of good taste.

The US has some nasty litigation laws so that probably has something to do with it.

I can't believe the french never came out with a red tinged "Tunnel Pate" after the lady die thing.

They've finished pitch 11... Kind of crazy to have this pitch by pitch update from the other side of the world.

Mr Gribble I love a welding and as long as they don't know of my behaviour at previous weedings I'm a shoe in.

Monarchist, no, republican buy proxy, antisocial arsehole by nature.

Anyway back on topic whats the T, B & B pink bits gossip?

Into that.

Do bridesmaids have page boys? If so have to look at OK and see who the bridesmaids are, they have shorter dresses (yes I'm lazy), may be hotter and certainly more available for bar runs later in the evening.

Who were Bec and Tommys bridesmaids?

We've gone from super-high achieving in the American rockclimbing scene to upskirting in 38 posts. Wonder if we can get back.....

Seriously.

Tommy's a strong contender for the nicest, most genuine, and well-meaning person I've ever met. A guy like him wouldn't stay on the market long. The circumstances are hardly interesting enough to gossip about.

I think they're sticking it through the storm on Wino Tower. Moderately spicy. The climbing they're doing is off-the-charts rad. I like how it's playing out as a 21st century redux of Harding's ascent but instead of being offered (and refusing, explicitly) a rescue they are tweeting from the wall and Corey Rich is rapping in with a team of lenses and assistants.

Due to bad weather the current attempt has ceased...
