    I just asked her about the post-it note sketch, she said she did it in 5 minutes while playing Roblox with her friend because she died and was bored :)

    Thanks. She watches art how-to videos on youtube endlessly and sketches every day. I would like to get her more teaching over and above primary school art lessons but there doesn't seem to be much available outside of school. This is what she did for the JK Rowling Ichabog challenge:

    My daughter's effort from a few days ago (she is 9), I didn't time her but she's pretty quick at sketching, this was on a post-it note

    Resonably modern ideally... with or without rings. Hollowtech II preferred. Thanks

    On the rock I wasn't too concerned, it often looks more exposed than it actually is on those videos. I agree re the wet grass though on reflection.

    Agreed. Video should be required watching for any budding UK mountaineers

    I agree to some extent, but where do you draw the line? What would be lethal conditions for some might be fine for an experienced party. Also, the bloke who got injured and his mate weren't originally with "Brave Dave", they just followed him down off the ridge.

    I guess my summary is Dave is a twat but he was confident with the conditions and terrain and not a liability. Big mistake was dropping off the ridge AND taking two randoms with him. (suspect he dropped into "guiding" mode without thinking that he had no idea of these guys' skills & experience) None of this covers him glory.

    However once the accident had happened he stayed calm, did the right things and contributed to saving the guy's life.
