Rich Simpson's Ascents in Question

About a year ago we posted an article about Rich Simpson, an English climber who quit climbing after sending 5.14d, ran a 3.58 minute mile, and was training to be an Olympic boxer.

The legitimacy of Rich's achievements, climbing and otherwise, have recently come into question, and so was asked by his sponsors to provide evidence of his claims, which he did not. He was therefore dropped by both Wild Country and Scarpa.

Here is an article from UKClimbing, where all the drama began.
