Gap Meet
I was at the Gap meet and it was lovely to see so many new and old faces.  Richard did a good job bring all of us together. I was psyched to get on some cool route but I ended up getting well and truely spanked. The first thing I got on was a sandbag E2 at ...

Gap or Glendo?
The answer came to me through some difficulty. Colm was persuading me of the
