I meant add another message - i.e post... Not correct? Sorry...

Also more details of where you will be wanting to go climbing in Australia (it's a big place!) either by minimum in which State or better yet which cliffs.

Loren,

Here's a rough grade conversion chart. According to this you are climbing around the 25 to 27 range in Australian grades. Also, be aware that most of the climbing here (in Victoria) is Traditional. However, if you are climbing these grades you will have a decent range of sport climbing available to you.

mit Freundlichen Gruesse,

Brad

Come to queensland Loren!! In the south the weather is terrible and they are all descended from impure convict blood. Then we can lay on the beach at sunset and sip from chilled coconuts.

Oh, that's why it's called Queensland! Not, of course, that there's anything wrong with that Dougal & Loren.

I hope you were aware already that Australia is the gayest country in the world and that Australian climbers (male ones) regularly climb in women's frocks.

If you're cool with that you will love it down here.

Particularly at Moonarie:

It changes nothing. We can role play. BYO g-string. That's what we climb in up here. Anyhow you're probably not as hairy as the German women. Come on up.

Seriously, Loren, Queensland is a very friendly place and I expect Frog Buttress has some lines that will be more than hard enough for you.

When does Wet Season end Dougal?

Billk - There were at least two posts worth of innuendo left in me.

Ok Loren - South East Q'land. Lots to choose from. The infamous cracks of Frog Buttress and the Glasshouse mountains - plenty more great stuff. Post on the 'Qurank' website to get in contact with the gang who know whats what.

Wet season happens up north. Any further south and its dry dry dry hot hot hot.

When are you here Loren?
