My girlfriend Annette is working for German national TV and in search of a topic on British sea cliff climbing (incl. Islands). She is looking for a ‘story’ and their persons that can be featured, i.e. interesting characters, early explorers, or so that live close to the coast. If anyone or ideas cross your mind - she would be grateful for your thoughts here or per Email (email@example.com).
A friend of mine fell off a route at Gogarth and needed to be air rescued off. Because she landed on a pinnacle of rock direct on her, erm, inner crotch. Ben Moon flagged down a kayaker, who called in the helicopter.
I’m not sure if she wants to talk about it on German TV, but I could ask?
She might try contacting Elfyn Jones if she wanted to do something about Gogarth in North Wales. He is the BMC rep for North Wales, very friendly and knows everyone there. BMC generally might be able to suggest some local heroes to talk to.
I have a great story about how @Catrin and @dabarlow climbed a north-facing 9 pitch VS, despite having driven to Pembroke to be in the sun, with several pitches of down-climbing in the middle, and at the end had to have their abseil rope rescued by two kind passers-by!
