Dude. You absolutely need two pairs of Jumars to climb big walls in the valley. There is absolutely no reason why you should not get another pair of jumars in Oz and learn how to jumar.

A. You need two pairs of Jumars and will save maybe $50 by buying them in the US.
B. You need to practice ALOT with jumars because this is the one thing you absolutely have to do (thats if all you do is second) and if done wrong it will totally wreck you. Practice free space rope climbing, slabby rope climbing, hauling, etc.

I saw many many many people stupidly ruining there big wall trips by A. being stupidly cheap with crucial gear and B. not practicing jugging ropes and hauling.

Dont be cheap. Buy a pair of good jumars and learn how to use them. Now.
