Going Underground

Stew Brown has found a hidden railway arch in Glasgow which he is busy equipping with home-made holds from stones found on a nearby river bed. I must say the holds are the best I've ever pulled on: grippy real rock with texture and contour, perfect for getting back the training psyche. If he could mass produce them he'd make a fortune! After a short session I felt my skin nicely pink and my tendons well massaged. Though the venue needs a little civic work I must commend his spirit of ingenuity and creativity. I can't imagine our council endorsing this kind of architectural multi-tasking just yet in this safety-fascist society, but for us it will be a cheap underground training venue and should be popular amongst the cognoscenti... Stew will no doubt reveal the location soon enough!
