Climbing stuff; some useful, some possibly life threatening you read it at your own risk, contributed by a group of UK based climbers.
Young, old, competent, incompetent truthful and outright liars we are a true reflection of the UK climbing scene. A few of us can actually climb. One or two of us just like to hang out at the bottom of a crag and tie on occasionally, which is OK but it’s not really climbing. If you want to learn to climb this is definitely not the site for you. Go somewhere else,
Glenmore Lodge or Plas y Brenin should get you sorted. This is just stuff that some enthusiasts, nothing more nothing less, have put on-line for you to enjoy. Anything you copy off this site could lead to your death so you have been warned
Tristan: A.K.A. Tris
Tris used to be known as Gene Simmons and he sang in a band called Kiss. However when the band discovered he was in fact a French climber (a very good one) called Tristan, they kicked him out. He has put his singing career on hold while he pursues his climbing but he still enjoys the odd yodel.
Marina: A.K.A. ooh! ooh! shorthand for Hooking, an ice climbing term, not the American sense of the word.
Marina is another top French climber, that makes two, who knew they had so many? A five star person who is not only a great human being but has the distinct advantage over her compatriot that she likes Black Bomber Cheese, that makes her very special.
Debbie: A.K.A: Demon Deb
Definitely the better looking of all of the fools but the reason she is on this site is her ATTITUDE! Yes she has lots of that and a hugely generous spirit, she loves to sprinkle expensive gear around the crags. Wait till she has to buy her own.
