It's now been 6 weeks since I had the wire removed from my thumb after a skiing accident and I am now only 4 weeks away from making the first ascent of Hubble at Raven's Tor which was to become the worlds 1st 9a route. It doesn't look like I get much training or climbing for the next two weeks due to working on a terrible Bogna film called Fire, Ice and Dynamite which I thankfully  never got to see. Maybe this forced rest for 2 weeks was a good thing for me since I'd now been climbing and training for around 6 weeks and was due a change of scene before starting the route campaign in earnest.   Scan 5
