So, rather than clogging my inbox with thousands of PM's, why don't we just post in here if we want to catch up for a climb? :eh:

I'll start- danose and slg are missioning tonight, yes?

missioning? more like floundering weakly....but yes, 6.30 at the roxx :thumbsup:

I keep trying to tell myself the grading has got harder and not that my arms are weaker

It's got one move that's hard 24. I think the locals went a bit overboard with a few routes up there.

I thought there were a lot of pseudo-familiar faces there - it's a well known fact I can't recognise people without helmets on their heads

yeah, that's true - actually the real problem is I can't recognise people away from the norm - so yesterday I had trouble recognising mfw cos he DIDN'T have a helmet on, whilst one of the other people on the course (who we used to climb with heaps so I'm used to see sans lid) I had trouble recognising cos she DID have a helmet on :blush: :D
