Should we have an Ashes for climbing? Just imagine being issued a baggy harness. Some biff in the pub before the series kicks off. Kissing the coat of arms on your helmet when you top off. Can't just be the whiskey or boredom that's brought this on. Lets burn a guide book, stick it in a chalk bag and have own Ashes.

I reckon a two pronged challenge; natural and juicers...

I'd love to see just how hard some juiced out of their mind climb-borg could raise the bar;) Kinda like the alleged dopers on the Chinese swim team at the Sydney Olympics. That could have been awesome:)

Speaking of which, I always thought EPO was a pretty natural fit for alpine climbing. Except that it's expensive, and few climbers could afford it.

Well if its a Test Match it would have to be Aid or at least Trad . . .
And One-Dayers would be Sport climbing, and the 20/20's are Bouldering . . .

Or how about a 'State of Origin' clash . . .

Which guidebook author are you gonna burn?
I know one in west Vic who is so full of it, that if you use him you will need a haulbag not a chalk bag. Will an Argus editor do instead?

So far 213 visits and 11 votes. Apathy wins. I think we're all polled out.
It's a stupid idea. Came out of that part of brain that only beer and whiskey combined open up like a schucked oyster. Having said that it probably ticks all the boxes of a government cultural / sporting / federation grant application. Get in now before kev jumps on the plane to st petersberg.

I could almost support this but for the vision of the 'Barmy Army' swarming through the pines, hordes of fat white pricks with pints in hand singing crap pommy songs..... we really don't want to go there.
