I hope they're better at organising stuff than they are at grammer and punctuation.

Is this meant to be a joke? It definitely is, in one way or another.

I skipped Rinehold Messner in Germany in 2003 because the tickets were 50EU
"So that's how they finance their life of climbing...." I thought back then...

I saw Alex Honold give a slide show and talk. He was as dull as dishwater. His Mandarin interpreter was much more interesting.

My goodness, what an embarrassing thread. It seems the tall poppy syndrome is still alive and kicking in Oz. Personally I'm looking forward to hearing the man speak. I'm sure it'll add more value to my life than a carton of premium beer...

Actually, after seeing how articulate he was in the reel rock film, I at least understand how he's doing a speaking tour.

If I was in Melbourne on the night and it was about $30 I would probably go along but for $70 - no. Given that it's also being set up as a schmooze session for the climbing wall/hold company that he's associated with it's even steeper as the money doesn't even get you to the snacks..
By comparison the cheap seats to hear David Attenborough, if you could get them, were $90. I would happily pay that, in fact I would happily pay the $150+ for the better seats.
