How did that route get that name? Jokes. Funny bits. Crag humour.

Who knows the origin of the names of the following routes of mine: King Freddie, All that Glitters, A Gift of Wings and Oh there goes gravity??

Heres a few wild guesses: -King Freddie is probably refering to Freddy Mecury dreesed up as a king during the Magic tour..... -All that glitters is from Led Zepplins song staitway to heaven.....\"theres a lady whos sure all that glittersis gold......\" -Oh there goes gravity is from one of Eminems songs. Oh and its at Lower silvermine not the mine. -The two routes next to it 'two trailer park girls' and 'chris kirkpatrick' are also by Eminem but from the song Without Me. -as for A Gift of for this one please

1 for All that Glitters, 1 for Oh there goes and 1/2 for King Freddie - obviously zero for a Gift of Wings. ANY OTHER ATTEMPTS?

no more attempts!! Just curious as to the other half of King Freddie?

When Freddie died, Paul McCartney's comment was \"what can I say - King Freddie\". I opened the route a couple of days after Freddie died (obviously I was a fan). A gift of wings is a book - which kind of bucks the trend of songs.
