Brilliant write-up on your free ascent of Freerider Clinton! Great read! Well written :thumleft:

Are we able to get the full verion without the editing error online though? Bit of a gap at the end of page 13.

No gap - the text continues in the left-most column, under the photo on page 14. Had me confused for a while too.. :oops:

Yes, nice one Clinton.

But vander & Stijn - Even with your beta I'm still not finding my way around the gap? I can't find any text under the photo on page 14? What's the trick?

Thanks, see it in the online version. So the hard copy is an error then?

Aha, thanks guys, I try to ignore the on-line version till I have read the hard copy so I can get the on-sight...
So was totally confused about the falling and then re-peating the "second" pitch till I read the on-line beta...
That'll teach me to stick to red-pointing...

Jeez, life used to be so simple !

Fantastic writing Clinton - thanks v much, and photos are glorious - even my wife is reading this copy...

Great read. Well done Clinton.

There is also a sub-editing error on page 14. Clinton had let his gaurd down TOO soon. The use of "to" midway in column 3 of page 14 is incorrect. Sorry to be pedantic.
I don't think, therefore I'm Not
