' The only difference between myself and a madman, is that i am not mad '

' expose yourself to your deepest fear, after that fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free '

' doubt is an important ingredient in any meaningful enterprise '

' Climbing may be hard, but it's easier than growing up '

' Never apologize, Never retreat, Never explain, get the thing done and let them howl '

' a few hours of mountain climbing turn a villain and a saint into two rather equal creatures. exhaustion is the shortest way to equality and fraternity '

' if you dream, then dream out loud '

' when that little mind in the back of you head says no, you say YES '

not to mention all the quotes in the selected guides to araps and the gramps.

Classic from the original 1967 VCC guide (Baxter/Dewhirst):
"All the cliffs in Victoria (excepting the cliffs of the Grampians and Mt. Arapiles) on which climbs have been recorded are described. There are other cliffs (particularly in East Gippsland), but as yet they have not been climbed. However, such cliffs are very few. The line was drawn at quarries and railway or road cutting, as these should be included under the category of earthclimbing. The boulder-strewn, steep hillsides (such as most of the Werribee Gorge) which some people call cliffs have been omitted likewise."


Enjoy. No I'm not making this up. There will be more.

Says a school kid to a senior gym supervisor during their school sport:
"Do you do the dinosour jump?"
"Huh?"
"You know - when you jump up the wall?"
"Ohh... you mean dyno"
"Yeah. Maybe it's a dinosour for an older climber..."

on reflection:
some choose to live vicariously through others - a portion of the thrill,
none of the risk of engagement and none of the rewards.
