This raised a chuckle...

Download the "Hardrock Safety Information" sheet at the bottom of this page:

http://www.hardrock.com.au/cms/details.asp?NewsID=35

and check the last paragraph.

And then have a look about half way down this page under the "Discovery Channel" logo:

http://www.cliffhanger.com.au/cms/general/about-us.php

I have a few questions:

Who's really 4th? Or was it a tie? Or is someone telling porkies, and if so, why settle for just 4th? (Cliffhanger on the same page claim they're Numero Uno!)

Odd that Hardrock's lead climbing policy doesn't make mention that the city gym no longer does sign offs and the Nunawading gym only does them Tuesday nights...

Oh well, since the advent of the new Blackheath wall that 4th will now be a fifth!

Yeh and also Cliffhanger boasts of being a founding member of IRGOA and claims to have been instrumental in setting standards....then lo and behold Cliffhanger exceeds all minimum standards!!!!!

Anyway both claims are complete bullshit as both of those gyms suck rotten eggs. Although I agree with the claim that they are both the 4th best gym in melbourne.
