The Angry Corrie 36: Apr-May 98

TAC 36 Index

An uphill struggle: Quiz answers

Oddly, and nicely, entries for this year's hellish hillish quiz (TAC35, pp4-5) increased from 22 to 23, mimicking the 1996 rise from 21 to 22. The feedback, of a harder-than-ever quiz, was borne out by last year's average score of 39.5% dropping to 37.6%. This was in spite of a few multi-choice (or multi-guess) questions, and with every question bar 2e correctly answered by someone. At least, as one entrant pointed out, we didn't indulge in negative marking. One or two questions always become garbled in transmission from the Editor's brain, and this year was no exception. There was one fairly inconsequential typo (1g), and one messed-up clue (5c), the latter producing a free mark all round. There was also the Great Cockup of setting a closing date on a Sunday, despite meticulous calendar-checking to avoid this. All evidence that your Ed did, as stated in TAC35, need a lie down.

Most folk had entered before, with fifteen alien returnees from 1996. Only five total newcomers; none from Scotland. Richard Webb became the first to compete in five quizzes. Good to see Charles Everett back after last year's sabbatical (or huff?); but where were ex-winners Lowndes and Tyson? Rumours of their shunning the quiz in favour of a DIY frenzy surely can't be true.

The Rangers-style dominance of Stuart Benn and Barbara Brodie continued, their third title in four seasons coming via the standard winning score of 70%. Rewards for such canniness and cunning include a very rare TAC33 sweatshirt. Second and third places were muddled and muddied by Peter Shaw and Bruce Smith cooperating on separate entries. They failed to agree on various answers, and their scores were not identically composed, but we decided it would be most fair if they shared second prize. This allowed 1994 joint-winner Graham Pearson to pick up third. Harry Ingram retained his grip on the booby prize - a copy of the sublime More footpath walks in Mid Herts for motorists. But his dismal 11% was matched by a badly off-form Barbara Jones, who crashed from 471/2% and 57% in previous years and picked up Walks with a car in Guernsey, kindly donated by Peter Shaw.


70 Stuart Benn / Barbara Brodie (joint entry), 64 both Peter Shaw and Bruce Smith (separate entries but joint second prize), 56 Graham Pearson (third prize), 54 Ian Baines, 51 Gary Westwood, 42 Jim Willsher, 40 both Graham Benny and John Pulford, 38 David Hoyle, 37 the usual Garrad Hassan plc team (featuring Lucy Craig, Andrew Fellows, Paul Gardner, Graham Gow, Peter Jamieson, Florence Pradere-Niquet, Gordon Smith, Lisa Stewart, Anne Telfer), 36 both Bev Barratt and Richard Webb, 35 Wolf Gruellich, 34 Peter Bibby / Helen McLaren (Bibby prize?), 30 both Charles Everett and Craig Weldon, 26 Ian Johnston, 25 Paul Caban, 22 David Purchase, 13 Chris / Edie Horton, 11 both Harry Ingram and Barbara Jones (boobies).


1a In 1997, whose feet no longer walked "along England's greenest hills"?

Princess Diana of course, as per Sir Elton's Candle in the Wind rewrite. Most folk got this, although BB started badly with talk of Women's Institutes and Jerusalem, whilst other guesses included W H Murray, Alan Wainwright (who he?), Laurie Lee, and A Harry Griffin - the latter alive and well aged 87 and scoffing his mint cake in Kendal.

1b What was officially scrapped then went to Mars?

The word needed was Pathfinder: the green 1:25k OS map series, phased out in favour of irregularly-numbered yellow and orange Outdoor Leisure and Explorer sheets. And space hardware named Pathfinder fell on Mars, like friendly bombs on Slough.

1c Which company was banned from using the Matterhorn?

Helicopters and guiding firms were blind alleys, whilst CW bizarrely suggested the Welsh Tourist Board. It was Cadbury, forced to redesign their Swiss Chalet chocolate wrapper which showed the Matterhorn. EC regulations or the Bosman ruling most likely.

1d What Strathspey placename adorned the new Land-Rover Discovery?

(d) Aviemore, as doublepage-splashed across the broadsheets all autumn. Hardly an appropriate name, unless you seek a vehicle encased in concrete and fitted with in-car gaming machines. Coincidentally, notorious Aviemore-trasher George Pottinger (chum of Poulson) died, aged 81, soon after the quiz appeared, perhaps through shock at having his handiwork further exposed.

1e Brandon Rock: (a) martial arts movie; (b) World Championship 800m runner; (c) Dingle pinnacle; (d) vilified vicar?

(b). Of the other options, (a) and (c) were figmentous nonsense, whilst (d), the Lincoln Cathedral geezer, was Brandon Jackson.

1f What words connect (1d) and (1e) with the person attempting a continuous round of Munros, Corbetts, and Grahams?

But Dean Jackson did genuinely feature here, since the megabagger is Peter Lincoln, who started in Aviemore.

1g What 2000ft/610m structure was completed at a cost of #18 billion?

Typoed as "2000ft/610ft", sorry, but it shouldn't really have hindered folk. Only GW gave the Three Gorges Dam, on the Yangtze.

1h What linked Suilven with Foinaven and Schiehallion?

These are oilfields west of Shetland. Foinaven (of uncertain depth) and Schiehallion (named after the Scottish Riverdance) have been around a while; the imminent onstreamness of Suilven was announced last summer.

1i Which Graham moved up the chart from Moray to the Outer Hebrides?

Not Billy Graham, nor Graham Cornwallis, and gibberish without the new Harveys wallchart - on which Cook's Cairn has, remarkably, drifted offshore to Harris. Your Ed (in on late checking) knows how this happened, but it wasn't his fault, nor a deliberate quiz-ploy, honest. Meanwhile, Uisgnaval Mor looks very nice in Moray: go and climb it before it moves back again.

1j Who were seen in a passionate clinch in A Life Less Ordinary?

All bar one put (a) Cameron Diaz / Ewan McGregor, since option (b), McNeish / Macgregor, scarcely bears thinking about.

1k Who dined on gravad lax, cream of Jerusalem soup, raspberry crème brulée, and then staggered up Ben Nevis?

Jerusalem for real this time. The Ben is no ordinary bing, and this was no ordinary binge. The clue was "staggered": it was the prenuptial jaunt of William Hague, who, as "Mr Jefferson", stayed in the Inverlochy Castle Hotel's #298-a-night Glencoe Suite. He then ate the food and climbed the hill before burying himself in the warm bosom of Ffyona Campbell or some such blonde.

2a Which two General Election constituencies were named after specific British hills?

The Wrekin and Pendle, although Edinburgh Pentlands, and Kilmarnock and Loudoun, were reasonable wrong attempts. Other ideas: Bassetlaw, Birmingham Hodge Hill, Caerphilly, and Glasgow Maryhill. The latter, oddly, derives from one Mary Hill.

2b In the most hill-filled constituency, which loser shared a name with two categories of hill?

Almost everyone got Donald (Donny) Munro, who cropped up in last year's quiz in the context of Dun Rig, which he has now left.

2c Which political party was founded by John Muir?

The first sort-'em-out tester, separating the literal from the lateral. Most thought: Muir - Sierra Club - green party. Only SB/BB and GP told of a different John Muir, founder of The Albion Party, who polled 126 votes against Hamilton and Bell in Tatton 1997.

2d What connects the Labour victory with Ynys Mon?

Slightly easier; the Anglesey high point Mynydd Bodafon, 178m, connects with the overall Labour majority of 178 seats. Only half marks for those who gave 179, having forgotten to subtract the Speaker, Mynydd Boothroyd. Nicest attempt came from BB, who spotted that Ynys Mon is an anagram of "synonym", and that a synonym for Tony Blair is Holyhead.

2e What useless item of hillwalking equipment displeased the Government?

Which nobody knew. Suggestions included cameras, mobile phones, anoraks, axes, walking poles, dogs, papooses, pagers, and GPSs. BB and BJ both tried a play on breeches and breaches of confidentiality, but it was simply beards. In November, Labour whips told bearded backbencher Paddy Tipping to shove off and shave. Tipping refused, saying that the public wanted politicians "confident in their hairiness". Quite where this leaves Frank Dobson / Irvine Butterfield isn't clear.

3a How many attempts were needed to clone Dolly the Sheep?

(a) 277 of these, as per old-time Munros circa 1990.

3b To how many days in jail was Louise Woodward sentenced?

And (b) 279 of these, as per old-time Munros circa 1974.

3c On which hill might Jacob have climbed a ladder but failed to fill his bag?

Some thought of a climb, Jacob's Ladder in Coire an t-Sneachda, or of the Ladder path on Lochnagar, or of Kinder; but IB, PS, and RW knew the lovely Jacob's Ladder path in the Mamores, corner-cutting between the main ridge and the Devil's spur, omitting Sgor an Iubhair - as it may increasingly be, now deleted from the Munros listing.

3d What connects Beinn a'Ghlo with W H Smith?

If you bag Ba'G, you'll climb to 1121m, as did one W H Smith whilst becoming Munroist 1121 in 1992. Nothing to do with newsagents, despite neat linkage from C/EH: all Scottish W H Smith branches have closed down, and they quote Atholl Estates as confirming that Glen Tilt can no longer be driven because "that past privilege of the general public's has been rescinded."

3e What connects Hamish M Brown and Barbara M Tulloch?

When in your Ed's house for a brew in January, Hamish told of receiving enquires to both this and 3f. And he didn't know! So no points for him, and none for saying Brown (Munroist 62) and Tulloch (Munroist 85) share a middle M. 1pt for seeing they're the first Munroists of each sex credited with a given name. IB unearthed Barbara Tulloch, executed for witchcraft on Shetland in 1712!

3f Which hill was Hamish M Brown describing in 1988: "- under snow has the curvaceous purity of a Marilyn"?

"...of a Marilyn Monroe", to be precise, and it's Beinn a'Bheithir, as described on p103 of Climbing the Corbetts, where Hamish, climbing Fraochaidh, was evidently having another session of "most erotic imaginings".

3g Which Munro recently became 130 tonnes lighter?

Cairn Gorm, or The Gorm, since the cairn, allegedly of this tonnage, was removed. SB/BB argued that the hill remained the same weight, since the stones were used for pathwork lower down; but we decided that "Munro" refers only to the actual summit.

3h What do A'Chralaig and Sgor Gaoith (and no other Munros) have in common?

Easier than expected, with most quizzers spotting that only these two hills have a Munro number-order (on pp58-69 of the latest list) matching their OS Landranger number: 33 and 36 respectively. Sgor Gaoith is also on OS43, not that that matters here.

4a The name of which film character derives from a map reference in a movie director's home town?

George "Star Wars" Lucas lived in postal district C-3PO, San Rafael, California. Eight folk said R2D2: right movie, wrong character.

4b "I crept forward and peered over ... nothing between me and the valley 1000ft below." Where was Ludovic Kennedy?

(c) Pinnacle Ridge, Sgurr nan Gillean, 1938, coaxed by his Eton headmaster, Claud Elliott (pp81-86, On my way to the club). Oddly, Kennedy was interviewed by Nicky Campbell (see 8c) on Five Live in Dec. But he didn't mention the Cuillin, nor Nicky Streap.

4c Hemingway: "There are only three true sports: bull-fighting, mountain climbing, and -; the rest are merely games."

Motor racing, Old Man and the Sea notwithstanding, as asserted by ol' shotgun features in Death in the Afternoon. There was a whiff of the Curse of the Corrie in the death of the third Mrs Hemingway, Martha Gellhorn, in the gap between TAC35 and TAC36.

4d Which poetry compilation published in 1982 had the opening line: "This anthology amassed itself like a cairn."

One of your Ed's poetry questions for once drew correct answers, from BB, PS, BS, and GW, familiar with the Heaney/Hughes-edited The Rattle Bag, forerunner of The School Bag. GW was taught English by someone who also taught Hughes. Half marks (split iambs?) to WG for noting that the cover of Robert Garioch's Complete Poetical Works shows a man adding a stone to a cairn.

4e " - could go on like this for years ... the must fun you can have with your cagoule on." Who, in September 1997?

Not Dave Hewitt, Mike Harding, nor Arbroath FC. Oasis, review by Caroline Sullivan, Westpoint (or Corrachadh Mor?) Arena.

5a Which Irish Marilyn was hit by a landslide in May?

Clem's Irish TACit Table helped, but it didn't need the Guildford Astronomer to suss that there's a Tory Hill down Waterford way.

5b Which Irish Marilyn is where angels fear to tread?

Lots of Devilsbit Mountains and Mount Gabriels; only IB connected E M Forster's 1905 novel with Forster's Mountain in Tyrone.

5c Which Irish Marilyn should be visited by the boss of the Rambler's Association?

We spoiled a neat idea here. The intention was good: there's a Sybil Point on Dingle, and the most famous Sybil since Tarquinius Priscus was played by Prunella Scales in Fawlty Towers. Trouble was, Scales was recently appointed President of the Society for the Protection of Rural England, not the RA. Oops. They're all the same these outdoor organisations, just like black footballers.

5d Which Irish Marilyn is 8736 times as high as its name?

Dividing 8736 by twelve gives 728, a perfectly reasonable footage for a hill, and of course the height of Inch Top, on Inch Island.

6a Which Scottish band released the album track Mount Everest?

Track Ten on the aptly-named Songs from Northern Britain, by your Ed's faves Teenage Fanclub. Nice try, but nothing doing, for "Mount Everest Sings the Blues", from the eponymous 1979 album by The Korgis. These (Andy David and James Warren) came from Bath, although both were once part of the hilly-sounding Stackridge (who recorded the instrumental "Coniston Water").

6b Which Scottish band released the album Mount Everest?

Less favoured by your Ed, but better than jazz for sure: The Diggers.

6c Which Beatles album had Mount Everest as its working title?

Complicated - and we risk reviving Rocky Raccoon's rancour here. We set this having seen Mount Everest given as the working title for Let It Be; but the idea also applies to the far superior Abbey Road. PC suggested Abbey Road was merely Everest, a belief supported by http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/mdcarey/timeline.htm, which applies the name to the complex overlapping late-sixties period. The White Album preceded Everest: this had the working title A Doll's House. Another website, http://members.aol.com/mrkite6777/rare.htm, says: "Abbey Road ... was the most technically accomplished album ... and the engineer had a say in the title of it. The album was to be called Everest, after engineer Geoff Emerik's favored [sic] brand of cigarettes. When it was suggested that The Beatles fly to the Himalayas to shoot a cover, they felt prepared to go no further than just outside the studio. The Abbey Road cover became one of the most famous of all time." Presumably Macca got cold feet about going barefoot in the Himalaya. Full marks for Let It Be or Abbey Road. The current late Oasis period is known as Dunkery Beacon.

6d Which eighties iconoclast ... said his favourite item of clothing was "a sharkskin suit made by Timothy Everest..."?

An amazing spread here - the resulting ménage would be worth paying to see if ever gathered in the one room: Tariq Ali, Melvyn Bragg, Ben Elton, Harry Enfield, Jools Holland, Clive James, Cameron McNeish, Jonathan Ross, Jimmy Saville, Stuart Staples. Only DH gave Tony Parsons, essential member of Late Review, and ex of wannabe (but not racy enough) TAC columnist Julie Burchill.

6e Which Irish Marilyn could be renamed Everest?

Easy enough really: not Edmund's Tump, but Mount Hillary.

6f Which other 8000m mountain recently formed a plant-hire company to build a pyramid?

One for the hip young gunslingers. If you've never heard of KLF, The K Foundation, 2K, #1 million in royalties burned on Jura, F*** the Millennium (their asterisks), or Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty, never mind. You're missing out on a pair of post-postmodern heroes, but never mind. But sixteen well-sussed entrants knew (or were good at Himalayan guessing) that Drummond and Cauty reinvented themselves as K2 Plant Hire Ltd to propose The Great Northern Pyramid of the People. If built, this anti-Dome statement will make the Angel of the North seem a mild flap. The idea is for the public to send in abandoned bricks: "K2 Plant Hire will collect the bricks and organise the rest. The site is yet to be announced. It will be open to the public free of charge, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You will be able to do what you want with it. Climb it, paint it, polish it, eat your sandwiches on it, or chip away at it. It will stand for as long as there is any of it left. It will promote nothing. Be sponsored by nobody. And owned by everybody."

6g The pyramid will contain 87,250,000 bricks, with a base width of 300 feet. How high will it be?

In a pre-run of the 9c and 9d mayhem, several quizzers submitted trigonometrical/geometrical working derived from height/base/volume equations and looking like the back of an old school jotter. This gave figures of 300ft, 277ft, 212ft, 204ft, 160ft, 59.43m, and 115ft. Far simpler was to read the K2 press release, which quoted 150ft. BB miraculously gave this despite a wrong answer for 6f!

7a What peak plummeted on Plymouth?

Montserrat (where Plymouth is the main town) has been very much under the volcano. The only doubt concerns whether the highest summit, Chances Peak (formerly a neat 914m) had itself erupted, or if it was another, more general, location in the Soufrière Hills. Various Caribbean guidebooks later, this still felt as unclear as the result of a Trinidadian Test, so full marks for both/either.

7b What links: Ben More Assynt / New Caledonia; Snowdon / Saint Helena; Snaefell / Seychelles; The Sneug / Haiti?

Suspicions that this might be the hardest question underestimated the five who spotted that the lettered grid square for each hill matches the international standard two-letter abbreviation (ISO 3166) for the corresponding country/dependency: NC, SH, SC, HT. But no-one scored the full three points, since no-one spotted that each hill is also the highest point in its lettered grid square.

7c Which mountain is this?

More geishawork than guesswork: most recognised this as the character for Fuji-san, or Mount Fuji. Fujiyama, as given in a couple of answers, is technically incorrect - no Japanese would name it thus - but we didn't penalise.

7d These characters all crop up in a Scottish hill context. Translate.

Cunningly designed by TAC's Japanese-speaking backroom girl such that a trip down the Chinese carryout wouldn't solve them all. (c) and (d) are specifically Japanese characters - so SB/BB faxed friends in Sydney who have a Japanese babysitter. Only a few were completely flummoxed (eg C/EH's attempt to transliterate into Cyrillic), and lots of bonuses were scored for an all-correct set of forest, mountain pass, waterfall, rain, sheep.

8a What two-word 13:13 appears on a tree-covered spur on a Scottish Outdoor Leisure map?

A topic which always throws up alternative info. We were wanting Blythemans Rig, in square NX4880 on OL32, Galloway. Another pointscoring 13:13 (also on a tree-spur) came from IB: Southerly Nick, NT4038 on OL44. BB found Fundhope Slack, NT8618, OL16, while BS saw a 12:12, Greyhound Law, NT7606, OL16. And your Ed recently read an obituary by the fine 14:15 Chuks Iloegbunam.

8b Which horse won the one-fifteen at Cheltenham on 14/11: (a) Hillwalk; (b) Mountain Ridge; (c) Bonington's Bottom?

Eminently findoutable, although most guessers guessed wrong. A few fancied Bonington's Bottom, but it was (a), odds of 8/1.

8c What connects Streap, Ben Creggan, and Nicky Campbell?

Streap is 909m, Ben Creggan is 693m, and the ex Wheel of Fortune host is now the mid-morning anchor on Radio Five Live, frequency 909/693m. JW was only half right for thinking that Campbell was still at 1FM, whilst WG needs his brain retuning after trying to link Co Mayo (home of Ben Creggan), Simon Mayo, and somebody once having eaten a mayonnaise sandwich on Streap.

8d Which western body of water announces that a king might have to move?

Chess, not history: Loch Eck. "'Lo! Check!', announced Short, only for Polgar to over-extend his bishop and mate him in three."

8e Which Munro was pictured in the advert featuring the terrible poem "Welcome to my home"?

A bit controversial this, since the advert (p72 of the brochure) shows Corbett Beinn Odhar (confirmed by WG in a phonecall to the proprietor). But we asked for a Munro, and sneaking in at edge of shot is a chunk of Ben Challum. We mellowed out though, so 1pt nonetheless for Odhar. (Note that here, as opposed to 3g, "Munro" means any part of the hill.) It's still a terrible poem, whatever.

8f What connects Cruach nam Fearna with Mr Ting Ming Siong of Sibu, Sarawak?

Comedy name, akin to Python's Fim Tim Lim Bim Biscuit-Barrel, and the 658m Cowal Graham Stob na Boine Druim-fhinn. The Cruach is 1089ft, and, according to the latest Guinness Book of Records, Mr Siong has been best man at a record 1089 weddings.

8g Four names on a tree-bucket outside the Thistle Centre in Stirling: Ben Vorlich, Stuc a'Chroin, Dumyat, and -?

Not hard if you thought laterally or phoned a central Scotland friend: the answer is in full view unless obscured by pensioners gasping over mid-shopping fags. The fourth name was liable to be Ben Cleuch, Ledi, Venue, or A'an. And the winner is ... Ben Ledi.

8h ScotRail coach 52458 contains an OS map of north Scotland. What island is named halfway along Loch Ness?

No-one was trainspottisher enough to visit Cowlairs depot or wherever, so IB and IJ must have merely guessed the Isle of Man. The map, spotted by your Ed on a recent journey, consists of a cut-in-half OS Routemaster with a drafted-in eastings bar pasted across the cut. Hence the weird juxtaposition of the gay-bashing Mansell-loving three-legged five-Marilyned Tynwalded island.

9 Explain these equations:

9a Salt + Brick = Sugar + Loaf = Mange tout

No such thing as an easy finish to a TAC quiz, and only the PS/BS consortium solved all six to earn the bonus mark. 9b and 9e were the most user-friendly, whilst screeds of equations were submitted by those who took "trigonometry" literally in user-fiendish 9c and 9d. Have you not been reading recent TACs, where concrete pillars have been in vogue? And we didn't take the cruel path of asking about flush bracket numbers: it was simple heights. Anyway, 9a was the last of the Irish questions: Loughsalt Mountain (469m) + Brickany (374m) = Great Sugar Loaf (501m) + Little Sugar Loaf (342m) = Mangerton Mountain (843m).

9b Creise + Conival = Little Conval + Meikle Conval = Shin + Shiel = Lomond

Routine OS Landranger sheet-spotting: Creise 41 + Conval 15 = Little Conval 28 + Meikle Conval 28 = Shin 16 + Shiel (big Loch, not Glen, nor little Loch) 40 = Lomond (Ben or Loch, not West, nor East, nor Books) 56.

9c Little Conval + East Lomond + Ward's Stone east - Ward's Stone west = Spidean Coire nan Clach

Quizzers shot off at tangents here, with tales of fusty logarithmic tables unburied from garden sheds, of slide rules splintered against walls in frustration. It was nothing like as hard, again solvable from Landrangers. These hills have trig points not on the main summit, and the equation sums their heights (Ward's Stone, in Bowland, has two summit trigs, both overtopped by nearby outcrops): Little Conval (547m) + East Lomond (424m) + WSe (561m) - WSw (560m) = Spidean Coire nan Clach (972m).

9d Spidean Coire nan Clach + Little Conval - 2(Slioch) = East Lomond

Took this a stage further, with the equation fitting the differences between summit heights and trigs: Spidean Coire nan Clach 21 (993 - 972m) + Little Conval 5 (552m - 547m) - 2(Slioch) 2 (981m - 980m) = East Lomond 24 (448m - 424m).

9e McNeish - Burn = Snowdon

Not trigs, nor maps, nor even Snowdon the hill. This was akin to 3d and 3e, since the completionists' list in Munro's Tables has names numbered thus: Cameron McNeish 913 - Rev A R G Burn 2 = Derek R Snowdon 911.

9f Cricket - Chess + Maps = Hillwalking

And finally, anyone who researched the quiz in a library, but who failed on this, was missing the obvious. Dewey Classification numbers ... Cricket 796 - Chess 794 + Maps 912 = Hillwalking 914. GW ended with a good gag: Cricket (MCC) - Chess (C) + Maps (OS) = Hillwalking (MCOS, Mountaineering Council of Scotland). He's got a point.
