They could also make good use of proofreading other 'facts' they present, as well as a spell-checker!

Well to be more precise... I would explain to the girl that her boyfriend is a doofus given his top-roping antics and that I will happily help her learn to lead. She then becomes a gun climber, gets rid of doofus boyfriend and we cruise around together climbing all sorts of awesome routes as well as putting up a few mega-classics too.
This site is genius. You would think that, if they selected the photos and captions completely at random, that at least one or two might match up. But no. These people are obviously extremely competent. I feel like booking in for a course of whatever it is they have to offer.
Cheers! I thought the Telegraph article in the paper was pretty good given the reporter only spoke with me for five minutes. The web site title is interesting... the diversity of climbing around Sydney is really amazing eh!
Had something in The Canberra Times too. It's funny seeing some of the quotes they pluck out of a much longer interview.
And ABC News 24 television did an interview on the weekend. You can see that here.
