Is it a cross between a multi-headed hydra and an octopus or possibly Jonny and Tom at last year’s relays? (Drawing curtesy of Dave Lund.)


Lewis Ashton reports that the “Juniors were out at Curbar gap today. O11s had a technical skills session snaking on and off the edge, continuously climbing and dropping on narrow rocky technical trods. Everybody did really well with some outstanding displays of skill, finesse and efficiency.” (Might the Juniors be renamed the Young Warts?)
