Moral Turpitude 23 is the first climb to the right of Square Gully aty Booroomba.
Was attempted totally trad in the early days - John was one of the more vocal no chalk and no boltaphiles at the time.
The ethics went and two bolts appeared in Moral Turpitude courtesy of John, I thank him for it.
When climbing I prefer to bend my ethics (bolts) when falling.

As a safety tip when climbing Moral Turpitude you must use double ropes, as you will crater if you fall cliping the first bolt. In addition the brackets are home made and require super small biners, I recommend using some mallions then clipping the biner into that.

Before the 2003 fires, I climbed climbed at Booroomba nearly every second week, so my slab technichque was pretty good. They reopened the park in February and I have been 3 or 4 times since - my loss of technique was very obvious, climbs that I have previously cruised as warmups, were now potential death routes.

Indeed it is. And a great quote at that! I don't think that any of the climbers that we consider influential ever set out to be that.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe:

Whatever you can do
Or dream you can do
Begin it
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it

And from a source the name of which escapes me:

Never look back, something is gaining on you

If you don't let go, you won't fall off.

Yay 100!

Mark Twight being interviewed in a bar:
Talking about taking risks and trying to hear each other over a group of noisy young larikin climbers, was asked:
'You have any friends that are bold and like this?'
"None that are alive"
