Gymwear Wall & bumbly fun Tuesday, 11 January 2005 At 6:42:47 PM bapak
Ross kindly introduced me to this Crag/Face over the xmas break & we spent an hour of "bumbling" (yes I bumbled, Ross climbed) about whilst Ross gave me some "real time tips" on how to address "Lycra" & "Sensible Undies". There is a large 2 tonne bomber anchor behind Ross's hat & a nice nest of blackberries at the quarry floor to keep you "on your toes" whilst body belaying.

On Lycra I found the sharpest edge of a "razor flake" (just down to left of the L on the Lycra)
= excess "free range blood" = had to retreat to "Sensible Undies" which wasn't as savage on the fingers. Ross has done a great job of cleaning, defining & grading these climbs & is great guy to climb with. (& very patient :-)

We would have done more but we had to retreat to my sister's place in Castlemaine
for a jam session & (more) cool drinks. (after checking the Wabbit's Woks etc)

* Thanks again Ross for the bon amis & the great afternoon out !!

Steve M :-)
