Before I forget - a climbing legend
O.k., so no-one will know his name.
But this is John, and he climbed with us for the whole time while in Ton Sai. What's so special? Well, he currently lives in Canada, but takes off 3/4 months EVERY YEAR to go back to Australia to climb.
He's also a prolific new-router, both in Canada and Oz. He also owns a drill, after he came to the opinion of "if you can't beat 'em.........". Any chance we can get this mindset back in Ireland? ;)
This is one of the coolest, friendliest blokes I'll ever meet. John, hope you get to make it over to Ireland some time!
By the way, he climbed Fitzroy in South America back in 1965, and he's still climbing at least 7b on sports...........there's something to aim for in future years!
