Let's see some more submissions. I can't believe the amount of new routing that has gone on over the past few years.

Looking forward to the party/awards night.

Re: loose block / blocks Milkman wall

Thanks Drew, I never looked into the origins of this climb and now that you have pointed me in the direction, I am definitely going to have read more about comic book writer David Boswell. So, Mr O'Clock and the Horrors of Ivan come from the same comic book...cool. http://www.reidfleming.com/images/...

Re: loose block / blocks Milkman wall

Thanks Bruce, your work is appreciated. What's the story behind the name of that climb anyway.

Your post got me thinking of several other loose blocks observed earlier this summer.
