As you probably appreciate this is neither peculiar to Australia nor to the era. The old accounts of what got done in the mountains (and the crags) way back when (50, 100, 150 yo) with minimal gear and maximum intestinal fortitude have humbled every generation since. Then again the mediocre stuff probably never gets written up nor passed down so perhaps it is a bit jaded.
