Dave, my ever enthusiastic buddy and partner in crime for many episodes over the years (although he's now kicking my ass on the fitness front due to all his running),is keeping me sane while I'm stuck training at present (in return for me helping give him an incentive earlier on in the year ;) by cranking his first 8a!!!!!
Who awesome is that?! Legend :)
Read his blog entry here about it - it's a great and interesting read
And on that note, great to see three climbers touching this grade this year from Ireland. Definitely, great to see some people psyched :)
