Potatoes

A rarity at irish crags, they are found almost solely on privately operated walls. I’m not saying anything, but to own a wall you need to own land, and we know which side owns the land. Once located the potato should be held with a vice-like grip, so as to reduce the chance of thievery (both from the land-owners and desperate fellow irishmen) and the climber should make several dynamic movements (i.e. sprint) home where they can place the potato in a bucket and wait for it to turn into alcohol.
