well I've been worried about you mob going to a lot of effort to go to Europe to possibly get sick or have the event cancelled.

How are you going to get your annual Swiss disaster in ? (disclaimer - you may have had it already this year, I'm really losing track of time).

Glad you are both OK.

Yes I am nervous about France (where OO Cup is), and Geneva (where I fly to ), i've commented on today's happy diary entry.

I have already had a CFS crash this year, mid May (caused by road running in the heat), & was kind of hoping that was it, but yesterday's (worst accident I've ever had climbing) incident has just added to the worry of 2020 & it's grimness.

I can't see Hamish climbing with me again . Shame. But I did hold his fall, & "saved his life". As you do all the time in climbing ....

& I see VIC is shutting down ? New normal ain't good, izzit?

I really, really hope this isn't the new normal, not even going to try to get my head around that.

Was the quote from the climbing web-site yours or did somebody else do the same thing ?

No , that was my quote on the UKC log for my ascent of the route.

Someone has said they'd "stick to running" re. my injury: but I've now logged 1,940 routes & had mishaps / injuries / "accidents" on fewer than 10 of those , so ...... (& they don't include 1000s of indoor routes) (once bruised my heel on an indoor route, to be fair ..... ouch , not ouch)

And of course I really hope this isnt' the "new normal", too...... I have no intention of playing in a band (I'm still in one...) in front of people in 2m boxes wearing masks. Fuck that (sorry).
