Yes, 'good riddance' was my first thought, but after several clusterf*cks in Lancs / County this fresher's season I have changed my mind. One of these involved over 30 student cavers (from Newcastle, MUSC and ULSA) trying to get up/down the first pitch in county, and for about 15 members of the group it was the first time they'd ever done SRT so you can imagine what the traffic jam was like. I now think it would have been far more useful if wretched had been opened up for fresher's season and then strategically demolished again.
Just googled 'three counties boundary' and it came up with Gloucestershire/Herefordshire/Worcestershire. I will try again. That's actually not a bad idea though, because we all know that the Three Counties system is the best in the land.
A Petzl stop would be a cool tattoo! Though simple, or rack purists (if there are any of those left) might beg to differ.
