Spider climbing doesnt look too bad- the future of speed climbing comps?

How about having only really little patches of the velcro on the wall and you have to be accurate enough
to hit them. Similar to ice climbing comps when the have little circles of ice surrounded up wood.

I reckon they should have the occasional organised week-end where a broad x-section of climbers get to be involved with the re-bolting activities --- this is sure to broaden support and cred-a-bill-ity ...

>I dont think Gerry (& Bob) have gotten over Craglets having the nerve to publish a >guide to Lonnie Gorge yet...

LOL ! --- I'm sure the Reverend Narko will forgive me for my sinz:P

'...the nerve...' ?? ... mate !!! --- for some bizzare reason , Bob refused to publish ANY climbing route info, ( maybe a token bit in his 'Peaks' magazine,circa 1980), until that maverick Mr Parkyn did us all a favour with the tacky , yet very useable, Cragletts effort ...

... legend has it that after a certain climbing accident, in the ' 70z at Frews Flutes , where ' half the Tasmanian Police attended ' ... Bob got pretty dark with his southern counter-parts --- the now deflunct Dad's Army officially know as the CCT--- because he assumed...that they assumed...that he was ... ah-hem ... allegedly ... an unsafe climber ...

... Coles Bay has always been considered 'neutral territory' ... so when Cooper compiled the first guide book in the 90z, Bob was quite happy to contribute info on all the new routes he had done there since the early '70z ...

... Northern Tas ?? ... it took 30+ years before Rogerz 'nerve' finally booted Bob in just the right spot :D

I find that if ya pig-out on rancid-Ballarat-Chinese-take-away , brew it in ya bowels over-night, then deposit it in a neat pyamid-shape , up wind , at one end of the crag ... just remember to bury it at the end of the day ...

The forums WERE originally open. Then I got a phone call from Parks Victoria wanting an explanation for
what we were discussing. I thought it prudent to make sure that people who can DIRECTLY SHUT
DOWN ALL OF OUR CRAGS at the drop of a hat didn't read them. If you can please explain why this is
a bad thing then go ahead....

I think youd find that, 2 years later, dot-gov are a much more enlightened and climber-friendly bunch ...

I have at certain times in the last fews years thought about just chopping entire crags and not bothering
with the new bolts for another 6 months... a bit of a publicity campaign perhaps...
