Your argument could be, well if we sell out our beloved M grading system, why not sell out the Ewbank free system as well and embrace the yank 5.12.005a/b R/X?

Simple - our free climbing system is cool. It makes kids in other English-speaking countries ask "Momma Momma, why can't we live in Australia?"

Now the M system on the other hand is not cool. It makes the kids ask "So if it's M7, what do I have to do to translate that to real aid grades? Divide by two...carry the one.... ....f&ck this I'm going to go play X-Box instead"

Now do we want kiddies to be getting fat playing X-Box?

And he did so with two lax shoulders that were prone to dislocating. He gave a slide show at the old Patagucci store in Melbourne and revealed that he had both shoulders reconstructed.

Aparrently he also freed Pebbles at Araps without using the hold around the arete. Having tried to do it that way (coz I didn't *know* about the hold around the arete) I can only doff my flat hat and salute him.

sounds like the Antichrist 19 M8/9 (East Face of Mt Maroon) at the time of the FFA. According to the late Rick White, the aid grade would be significantly easier now (M6 perhaps?) with the advent of modern gear (ie no more shallow tied off pins). I believe Paul Hoskins freed the crux headwall pitch on top-rope at 28, neglecting to lead it as retro-pro (ie bolts?) would have been necessary for a 'sane' lead. Perhaps you could confirm this Hex...

On another note (with no particular point other than ??), the Antichrist was the scene of a 30m fall on a subsequent ascent. *Apparenlty* that day turn into an epic....

We don't sell out on our free grading system because it makes sense while the Yosemite Decimal system is useless, who invents a system which doesn't divide the grades divisions up evenly, seems more like guess work to me.

The A sytem however is linear and clearly defines each division.

That's just my view anyway.
