Fark me mate, wtf is your problem?!
1) First off, I couldn't give a toss what the grades are and their relative conversion in Ewbank is, I was just psyched to climb some amazing routes in a pretty special place. The grades are simply an indication of difficulty. Despite what you might think mate, more often than not if you are talking about a route, people will invariably ask the grade, hence why I listed them in the TR.
2) As far as I'm aware, 7a is 23 and 8a is 29... If the grades are out of whack, it's certainly not intentional.
3) Captains of crush make those hand grip thing's
A few of us thought it would be a fun name for a climbing blog.
I met you a long time ago damo, and you seemed like a pretty decent bloke. Clearly I was wrong... Trolling, sledging for no reason and generally being a douche, I can never understand why some people feel the need to bring others down.... I didn't realise that writing a little TR about my first big OS trip would make me a number dropping hero.
