Can I appeal to the collective GP knowledge for a German translator? My Mum broke her arm and dislocated her shoulder while on holiday in Germany and now wants her physio instructions translated into English for the physio here....

Hello! Cameron here, on Tom Wolfe's phone.

We have no phone numbers for anyone. My phone has died.

We're above Cloggy making our way down via the Llanberis path because we don't trust the east terrace. If someone could ring Will Benfold with this information and Tom's number: 07984677475 that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

His phone's going to voicemail at the moment, but I've texted him your message. Good luck!
(And now I need to find out if I have _Heartbreak Ridge_ in my movie collection)

Thank you very much! One more favour... Could you try Sarah W or Jody? Or Marion or Tim, but we think their phones may be dead.

We don't want anyone calling mountain rescue (this time).

Texted Jody - I've not got Sarah's number - and texted Tim. At least there's no snow.

Yep. Everyone is fine. I was unnecessarily worries about people being worried, and we got back to Tim and Marion a good hour before they would have started getting concerned (albeit too late to get food anywhere).

On our way back after a big breakfast at Pinnacle Cafe and a pleasantly sunny day at Tremadog. Grinning

Hey wait Cameron you were on Cloggy this weekend? You should have said - I would have come up to kick rocks down!

Yes, sorry Nick. It all got organised in a bit of a rush. We would've appreciated some extra loose rock on Saturday: most of the things I pulled on were far more stable than I was expecting them to be. Happy

And apologies if anyone was worried by my (possibly counterproductive) attempt to use the GP to reassure people on Saturday. After queuing for a route, getting stuck behind slow people, and then having route finding issues on the alternative option we chose, we topped out at 8pm in cloud, having said that we'd be back at the bags around 6pm. I was a bit worried that (since we wouldn't be all that visible in the cloud), people might start to be concerned, especially as we decided to take the long way down, and I was moderately paranoid because I really, really didn't want to meet Llanberis Mountain Rescue again (especially since we didn't need their services on this occasion).

What did you get done? A mate of mine did Great Wall on Saturday, while his beautiful girlfriend splashed about in the lake. You'd know if you were there at the same time Happy

Tom W and I went up 'Great Slab', while Marion and Tim did 'Pedestal Crack'. Route finding was mainly an issue on Pitch 2, where I struggled to get on to the rib (by going too high), and then struggled to get across to the foot of the groove (by traversing too high), and then I chose to belay too early on Pitch 3 (just because there hadn't been a great deal of gear on the slab, and I didn't want to bet on their being a better spot further along).

Tom mostly took the challenging climbing and awkward anchors in good humour, though. It was his first multipitch, and he almost never told me that he'd never be speaking to me again if we ever did anything similar ever again.

Great Slab is an amazing route! Nice work!

"if anyone was worried by my (possibly counterproductive) attempt to use the GP to reassure people on Saturday" -- Cameron

The first message we had was Niall's text letting us know you were okay, so I'd say it was definitely useful.

Are you still in need of this? My sister is a translator, she's very good with German. I'm sure she would be happy to help out. Email me at sarah dot woodrow at physics.ox.ac.uk if so :-)

Also - is anyone interested in an evening at Cleeve Hill on Wednesday? It would be nice to make the most before it gets dark too early (sunset is at 20:50 on Weds, so probably just about doable). Mostly, UKC tells me I have 4 fewer climbs in July than June, and I'd like to set that right...

Yeah I reckon: I'll be pubbing instead of Brookesing on Tues and Thurs, so I guess I ought to climb instead of pub on Weds!

Hi Sarah, I found another friend with a German translator husband who said he'd do it - though he hasn't replied yet! So I think I'm ok but I'll let you know!

Ich bin derzeit von Deutschen umgeben, aber immer noch auf Google zu übersetzen. Es ist kurz davor mir ein Bankkonto, so dass ich denke, es ist gut.

Lol Aeron, I think you might want to use less flowery language and perhaps shorter sentences to be successful with Google translate. Glad to hear you'll be getting an account soon! :-)

That's a wee bit early for me, but I could be interested in going in the early evening if that suits?

I'm starting nights tomorrow so need to leave oxford by 7 including having shower etc. So probably 4 is latest I could do I'm afraid.

Ah well, I don't think that will work then, I may need to stay a little after 5pm.
