Blueys Multi partner

Hi,

Looking for a passionate climbing partner(s), ideally with a particular interest in multi pitch. Climbing sport lead atm - 19/20 generally comfortably, 21/22 can sometimes get up. Have reasonable experience (~10) and all equipment for sport - could be enticed to trad after a bit as well. Initially, I would like to climb:

http://www.sydneyrockies.org.au/pdfs/whymper.pdf

Then we start tackling these:

Any takers?

I would probably be up for a trip to the bluies in a few weeks. Climbing about the same grades, all the gear etc. Drop me a PM and we can see what works.

Ok not a lot of takers; time to pull out some advertising attempts.

Let's see..

* i'm arguably fun to hang out with
* i'm a chick
* i've got walkie talkies.. come on- how cool is that?
* oh.. and i'm safe!! :) and won't freak out when we hit epics.. but will work with you to resolve the present situation at hand.

how 'bout now?

PRO TIP!

Don't meet someone on the internet and the first thing you climb with them is a remote multi-pitch route! Just like internet dating, you need to protect yourself against the very real danger.............of getting stuck spending a long period of time in the company of an utter tool!

Best thing to do is to organise a gym session or a half day close to home, and suss the person out for subtle dickhead behaviour (remember, any annoying traits will probably be much more extreme than they initially let on). Imagine spending all day listening to the yabbering of some insufferable moron, and then at the top of the route they start talking about the "next thing you're going to climb together"? Awkward!

Been caught have you?
Tell us more about the awkwardness you experienced, as I didn't think it possible.

Oh, there's been a few!

The first time I went to araps on my own (20yrs old, and having led a somewhat sheltered existence in Canberra), I met this wild hippy dude getting about in tiger pants (including a tail). We arranged to meet up at the flight deck in the afternoon, as he was really keen on leading Orestes. When I got up there, the dude was so stoned he could barely see, yet he proceeded to start up on lead. At about 5m he placed a single nut, declared it to be totally bomber, then ran it out nearly to the end of the hard bit before getting all confucted and pinging off! I did my best to emulate the gritstone belay technique I'd heard about, and managed to arrest the 10m whipper with mr. stoner hovering millimeters above the rock at the base of the corner.

And that's how I first met Bomber Pro! True story

Depending on when, I am usually keen for some multi-pitch action . . .
And could offer some trad enticement as well, if still keen . . .
Drop us a line . . .

classic. i started to respond with...

'@onedayhero - whilst I Sincerely appreciate your concern - i think i received similar advice when i went to africa at 21 years of ago to stay with a family for a week i met off the web.....but MAN was that a killer experience.;) But don't worry.. i'm Much older and wiser now.. :)'

then a quick googlie revealed the history of this 'stugang' incognito 'bomber pro' character.

funny.

The real bomber pro changed his username to muki. You should go read his posts for the full effect.

To be fair, I had a really good couple of weeks climbing with Muki and his mates, and learnt lots of stuff. The first impression was a bit disturbing though.

its a wee bit complicated but hopefully this explanation will make it clearer. The stugang above is stugang with a dot ie. stugang. (stugang. (ie. stugang with a dot) is a bit of an enigma - he keeps popping up and never seems to have a purpose). Stugang without a dot was once Bomber pro (without a dot), but the original bomber pro (without a dot) that One Day Hero (without a dot) refers to is not the stugang (with or without a dot) version of bomber pro (without a dot), but ODH (without a dot) actually is referring to the one and only original Bomber pro (who never had a dot) who now owns the name bomber pro but is too limp dick to resurrect it again.

Now that that is clear I shall make it clear that when onedayhero was referring to bomber he was referring to him. Get it?

Well, if you're that adventurous, maybe you'd like to join Stugang and I when we head up to the Blueys in a couple of weeks? We're planning to visit a couple of sport crags.........hey, when you say that you have all the equipment, does that by any chance include a battery angle grinder?

Speaking of bomber pro check this video out. I know the thick accent doesn't do him any favours, but I could not stop laughing throughout this video as it comes across as if this dude invented climbing without bolts.

You are not wrong, even though I have been around the site long enough, I still had to follow that explanation closely to get it to make sense, which it does!

~> It would also seem that present posting User ID jkahd also had/s a former User ID from the thread link given when one looks at the replies to it, so she would understand how these things happen?

Heiko is looking forward to the next (insert strong German accent) ďgood placingĒ!

Forget stuie and dead hero, I am more passionate than both of them put together.
If you want a good rock experience compared to the gluies come to Arapiles and I will alternate lead with you to high places that you may have never been, that you know you want to go to.
Bouldering is optional.
Oh, and by the way, I know a good cafe nearby that we can have a meal at.

funny enough.. if you're the simey i think you are..(although i can't follow all these name changes and '.' dots.) i was in araps 2011 over chrissie and actually hitched a ride from you from bushranger bluff back to the pines.

sure you wouldn't remember me though.. my unique identifier would have been stench (lack of shower), red eye - having stupidly swam in lake natty to try to "clean" myself after a week without a shower... and Feeble attempts to try to get up repo man..
