Hey, I'm over the moon! I was aware something had been submitted to the mags, but I don't have any photos myself. I'll get in touch.

Thanks everyone for the comments & votes.
Hi Mike, just up for a sunny weekend in the Pass with some of the Exeter UCC at the time - lucky enough to be following Left Wall (with Derek Ryden) when DT turned up. Took this shot while balancing in the niche I think. Went on to lead the Gates, then followed Derek up Grond (Winched up, utterly exhausted, but it was all done without chalk - or breakfast!)
Dave, glad you like it - copy on its way.
Sean - I might even crop those borders for you sometime :o)
