Can someone provide a dissertation on chin nuts and pull nuts? Does it all have to do with the grip?

I assume the description mentions the ledge hitting potential?

It's not so much harder than 14 if you scramble up the ledge on the right rather than go directly up the blankish face. I always assumed that was the cause of the discrepancy... Neither climb is worthwhile compared to the easy and enjoyable "18" that ends up under the roof on the far right.

Hmmm, so the thought process went something like...

"i dont want the ben trashed. Theres been 4 bolts for a long time and its still not trashed. Maybe i should print off a guide and get everyone excited about coming to ben lomond... Yeh that'd prevent the area getting destroyed. Those hobart douchebags like information to be free, how would i ever make any money or have photos of me published?"


Can u explain again why tats not allowed either because i genuinely dont get it. And why, after someone smartly installed a fixed line as they were climbing there for a wee while, u removed it? I suppose if you had of thought of it it'd be fine? Can u tell me how u rack up so next time i can 'do it how it was done in the good ol' days'?

Dunno what the big deal is about a few bolts at the Ben, when truly "holy" places such as the crosses on Golgotha can happily accept at least 3 nails.

Nope, that's what eyes and brains are for
