It's like the TV... if you don't want to watch, turn it off. Not like spam where it is forced down your throat. The thread is hardly disguised as anything else now is it?

gr 25 was my other inkling... can't remember the name of the climb, although its quite a bit closer to Fortescue Bay than the Moai itself (different rap in point?)...?

Blah Blah friggin Blah......

With so much of what we get to see coming from the states and other parts of the world, Simon's calendar is not only refreshing but probably for some, a godsend. Australian content can sometimes get overlooked in favour of the big names and big locations and here we have something for us and about us.
Furthermore Simons willingness to contribute to chockstone and field our questions is something we are very lucky to be able to do. I hold him in high regard for his contribution here and for the outstanding quality of his work.
So should he choose to inform us of a new product personally I welcome it, and in this instance even more so. Simon in conjuction with the contibutions of others have created a fantastic calander, showcasing great Australian locations and sensational climbers.
So basically Blah, keep your smarmy bullshit sarcasm to yourself
(Mods :.... is that a bit too far )

So I managed to find myself down at the Valley climbing shop strip in Brisvegas on the weekend spending my prize money from the nat comp. Guess where some of the funds went.

When I got the calendar home I definitely ogled over the pics in all their glorious beauty. Well done Simon and all the photographers. To everyone else, please go out and support the local product.

Anyone who has objections to my posting this stuff here then please see Mike's comments in the "Spam friendly topic!" thread.

I've fixed up the alt text to calendar photos on my web site. Here are the answers...

1) Scott Camps, The Healer (22/A3), 300 metres, Lake Huntley, Tasmania.
2) Monique Forestier, Intergalactic Lactic Spastic (32), Blue Mountains, NSW.
3) Malcolm Matheson, Infirmity (23), Moonarie, SA.
4) Jacqui Middleton, Like a Koala in his Eucalyptus (29), The Grampians.
5) Lee Cossey, Ozymandias Direct, (28) 270 metres, Mount Buffalo, Victoria.
6) Garry Phillips, Entré (30), Star Factory, Freycinet Peninsula, Tasmania.
7) Nathan Hoette, pitch two Space Odyssey (27), The Grampians, Victoria.
8) Abby Watkins, Retro (21), Point Perpendicular, NSW.
9) Pat Turner, The Dragon (32), Kalbarri, WA.
10) Dai Koyamada, The Wheel of Life (V16), The Grampians, Victoria.
11) Steve Monks, pitch two The Golden Pillar of Fortescue (25,25,24,16), Tasman Peninsula.
12) Jason Piper, Daddy Cool Crack (27), Eagle Rock, Hawkesbury River, NSW.

And the winner is...

Hmmm, seems no one got it entirely right, which is a bummer given I'd gotten such a good prize together and all...
