the next generation

There seems to be a lot of talk lately about 'the next generation' in climbing. What people actually mean is the current generation of climbers since climbing appears to have gone the way of female gymnastics. But don't despair fellow fogie coulda, woulda, shoulda beens, this is just a passing phase.

BEHOLD THE FUTURE. Outdoor climbing (an unregulated strength sport) is the perfect arena for genetically modified climbers. Take my flat for example:- a bunch of bitter punters. But if you mixed us together we'd be amazing. Dan's blind confidence and my buff arms on sarah's skinny waist, Emily's steely but thin cycling legs and Alison's Huber brother hair. It's not pretty but then neither is Adam Ondra. Don't laugh, I've already got two flat members consent for the operation. It's the future people. Take it or be left behind.

Legs, I wouldn't bother with them! A head, two arms are surely all thats needed...

Yeah, Mr redpath but you would say that!
Staying on the same theme, I notice that there is a glaring omission in your cybernetically spliced up athlete....

WHERE ARE THE FEET?!!!

Or did you run out of flatmate parts to use?

sam clarke said...

maybe it could have interchangeable feet. Little left foot for pocket, big right foot to fit the heel-toe cam....

So what's this mutant's name?

DanSamSasEmAli or SasEmDanAliSam or maybe Footless Monkey.

Dave, maybe you just need the two arms. If you don't have a head, then you can't lose it.
