If it does the job it doesn't matter if it's ugly. Al...

Re: CRIB CRAWL - New Date: Wed 24th November

A key in my pocket and a cryptic cry for help on an envelope. I'm beginning to think there's more afoot here than meets the eye. I'm afraid I'm going to have to hang on to it as evidence at the moment, JK.

Cathal, give me a buzz in the morning if you can't make it into Galway. Cheers.

Re: CRIB CRAWL - New Date: Wed 24th November

I see today that when I got home I wrote 'HELYP!' in large capitals on the back of an envelope and went to bed.

Re: WW101 – Part 5 – Saturday 27 November

Lift sorted, Finn – see original post. Thanks, Cathal. Has everyone got all their gear sorted? Minimum BA with harness, rope, sling and knife. Post here if you haven't got something.
