Must have been hilarious setting the timer and getting into position!

Nice to meet you wink
Mal: I actually knocked the tripod and camera over on my first attempt, everything seems to still work though. I must be doing something wrong Simon, I dont seem to be able to tag the image? Mal
I am glad to know you, Mal,But in that position it is difficult to narrow the hands!
Mal: Thank you Jose, yes your right. Mal

Hello Mal.

Mal that is so fantastic to have that space set up to be climable like that. Really nice.
Mal: It's loads of fun Russell, I keep falling off it these days. Mal
Here you look a bit like someone I did contemporary dance performances with back in the 90s.
Mal: I have zero co-ordination when it comes to dancing Russell, I might manage the Hokey Kokey though. Mal

Hey, Mal. Is that really your loft??! I thought you were 50?! Do you work for oil of Ulay or something - you've aged very well... not that I'm gay or 'owt. Really interesting take on the theme, and pleased to meet you smile I was half expecting to see you under that pier!
Mal: Your showing your age now SL, It's called Olay now! I hadn't thought of the peir, damn you always come up with good ideas afterwards. All the best. Mal

Mal: Thankyou Chantal. Mal
nice to meet you mal, you are as clean as your shots smile
Mal: Thank's Dee, I smell a bit though!! wink Mal
Now then Mal, you know you are cheating here by posting a photograph of your Grandson, that really is not allowed!! If this is really you, then you have some amazing PP tools or a very kind camera! I actually thought your loft would be kitted out as a film set, full of models of piers and shopping trolleys! Great shot mate, well done.
Kindest regards, Neil.
Mal: The camera was sat on the shopping trolley you fool! I managed to iron out my wrinkles in PS. wink Mal
;D ahaah.. nice shot! nice to meet you..!
Mal: Thank Silei, hope you did not cut that hair? Mal

Well it makes a change from fibre glass!

WHY CLIMBING IS BETTER THAN SEX

1. When you climb, you only have to get yourself to the peak.
2. If you climb with someone other than your regular partner, no one gets mad,
in fact, you can all three climb together and share protection!
3. You can reuse your protection, and someone else even cleans for you,
provided you don't put it in too deep.
4. There IS such a thing as being too overhung.
5. You can get belayed without first bekissing.
6. A good hand jam can be as satisfying as any other kind of jam.
7. No matter how many times you fall off, you can always climb back on.
8. Having a belay slave is not a criminal offense.
9. The rocks never expect you to call afterward.
10. Friction is a positive quality when you're climbing.
11. The rocks don't care if you show up late.
12. The rocks don't complain after 7 or 8 pitches.
13. When you're climbing, a good two-finger jam will support your body weight.
14. Your belayer never hesitates when you yell "TAKE!"
15. When you're climbing, weird body positions are considered "cool".
16. The rocks don't scream for help when you try for the on-sight flash.
17. Your climbing partner doesn't complain when you don't want to do cracks
anymore and want to do some face.
18. A three-finger pocket isn't too big.
19. You don't have to wait an hour after getting pumped-out.
Mal: Hee hee Digi, loved all of those reasons and they are all true! wink Thank you Digi, Mal

Hi Mal, that looks way to strenuous wink
Mal: I photoshopped the chair out Chris wink Mal
I reckon you flipped the image upsidedown, and you're not ACTUALLY using any rock-climbing skills at all, hehe.
You could've at least worn a new vest for us....lol.
Mal: I've been Rumbled again! It was new! In 1992! Mal
Ever thought about a stair-case? It's much easiersmile
Mal: My Stanna stair lift will not get up this far Dave. Mal
not a pint of beer or a glass of whiskey in this picture what kind of Scottish are you smile ?
Mal: I drank them all! wink Mal
Really nice to meet you smile Explain this picture please .... Are you in the roof ? smile smile
Mal: Hey Zeb, yes that is the underside of my roof in the loft of my house. Mal
I never would have guessed that this was taken inside a loft. It looks quite roomy in there. Very cool to have rock climbing in there, too. :p I like the shot and how there are all different angles formed by the person and roof. Looks good.
Mal: It was me Beau! Mal
nice pink pants, are all scotish forced to wear that? smile
Mal: I didn't want to shock everyone, If i had worn my kilt! Mal

Very very good Mal. I knew you were just that bit alternative.
be careful my friend your shoelace is untied ! have you been working out lately smile
Mal: I can't bend down that far, I'm so old!
Is this the highest mount in your town? I guess you're ready for the Everest
Mal: I get altitude sickness when I get to the top of the roof and my nose bleeds! smile

you say you don't interpretive dance mal but is that the 'YMCA' you are doing. This is an interesting way to go and adjust the tv aerial mal or is this how you hide from the fuzz when the shopping trolley inspectors are out on the beat. nice shot mate.
Mal: The camera was sat on the trolley! I must say that it isn't the most macho pose! wink
I am sure it's a reverse picture !!
Mal: You have rumbled it, I just turned the camera upsidedown wink Mal
Ah! I am green with envy. If only my tiny London flat would could sustain anything beyond the smallest of fingerboards...

Keep off the pies. Keep on crankin'

I have a couple of sons who are into rock-climbing, so am used to this stuff all over the walls and ceilings of sheds and garages.

Impressive set-up to catch yourself so crisply, Mal...or, is it a self-portrait by your assistant [the no-doubt beautiful whatshername] who succumbed to an offer to "...see me moooves..."?
