Wasn't totally gutted about this incident, but it was not my finest day climbing.

Mostly just wanted to post some pics from a couple of weeks ago. This is Gibraltar Peak, and the climb is Nailbiter. They're in the hill around Canberra. it was very, very cold in the shade up there.

I was gutted because it's a 16 and I should have climbed it pretty easily. Instead I got pumped sick placing 19 pieces in 6m, fell, flopped and carried on like a pork chop.

Don't feel bad Evan, everyone gets nailed by Nailbiter! You should be happy that you've come one step closer to being a local.

To continue development of local status, make sure to return to Gibralter and get slightly disturbed by Flip Flop Fly (a really short second will give you the best laugh you've had in ages)....then totally crap your dacks committing to the jump on Holy Guacamole

if the gear was soaked in petrol it would not suffer much, but a rope failed in Yosemite when (even though new) it was placed on the ground in the car park, it failed, the guy died, later an inquiry discovered microscopic amounts of battery acid at the point where it failed.
the garage floor would worry me if any acid (battery or other) was ever spilt.
but petrol ? you can wash ropes in that !

BD used to have a great PDF of the investigation of a similar rope failure at a pipeworks gym (sans fatality). Was interesting to see the microscopic comparison of a rope that snapped (threads burn each other as they heat and form nodules) and one that was burned by acid (clean cut threads).

Gutted that I'm not gonna tick a 23 while I'm still 40. Had a good go at Still Life today and my best effort had me grabbing the last hold all wrong and with my feet all wrong and while I was trying to sort it out so I could clip the anchors I fell. Screamed like a girl too (apologies to anyone who was climbing in the area - or anywhere at Thomo as I'm sure ya all heard me.)

next time.

Gutted that after months of nursing my back to health it's hurt again. Bed rest, codeine for pain, cortisone for swelling, metamucil for codeine. More months off.

I'm gutted that I'm seriously thinking about being drawn into the debate about the differences between UK and Ozzie grading. I already spend too much time on here... I'm gonna see how long I can resist for - any bets? x

Tomorrow ... well, that depends on how quiet today is .... go on, the english system was established by short sighted ol' men in hobnailed boots who became verbosely creative to make up for its shortcomings but sadly stopped short of "mindblowingly desperate" and "beyond phenomenally preposterous" ...

Those are good grades. I think it should go to E4 and then MBD BPP. yeah that could work.

I think that is my prob though with the grades in oz.. (ahhhh I was only going to comment on your comment -got other things to do tonight.) x

Im gutted that a line I had my eye on has been not only done before I could get back up to do it, but has also been turned into a sport route, an 8 metre crack climb with 5 bolts and a lower off.

gutted.
