Just trying to get this thread back on track.
If you were to find some nuts stuck to the wall, what would you call them? ...Wallnuts.
If you found nuts on your chest, you might call them chestnuts. But if there were nuts on your chin, what would they be called? ...Chin nuts? No such thing. You'd be a c--khead. Just like all the climbers who want bolts back in the Ben.

I disagree!!!...there are such things as chin-nuts...



Also urban dictionary...

Chin Nuts
When one person has a dick in his or her mouth. Also works for Chest Nuts, Ear Nuts, or Rib Nuts

So if your wrong about that what else are you wrong about???? :)

Looks like some of the Hobart boys who want to make the Ben more convenient with botls. They can trash their alpine crag if they want, but leave ours alone.

Funny thing about the mysterious 'O', he's actually a shit-hot climber. You would never guess though, cause he doesn't feel the need to let you know about it.

24 at Booroomba is hard, I'm not ashamed at all about struggling and thrashing. If you even had the guts to get on a route that hard out there, you'd probably learn a few things...............but of course you never will.

It took me a while to work out because I never thought that someone who requires babysitting at the crag would feel comfortable spraying about all things climbing. I guess I misunderestimated you.

I'm not that tall, but some mornings after a really hot curry the night before............

It suggests that bouldering is gay since V6 blocs don't even translate to gr16 trad

That one is not entirely my fault, but its a pretty funny yarn.

For those not in the know, Red Rocks is a volcanic sport crag on the Murrumbidgee river, spitting distance from the 'burbs of canberra. It's a great little crag, 20 routes on steep (for canberra) red and black rock, up to 30m high. The only drawback is the 'funny' climbing style required to deal with the sideways holds and benchtop-smooth rock...........and the ledges to hit if your belayer is not paying attention..........and the fact that you have to jump or swim across one of australia's major rivers in order to access the crag.........

Anyway, the existing routes were all clustered from 18-24. When we went to replace the old bolts and repopularise the crag, a friend of mine wanted to add some safe, easier routes so that people could warm up/get their girlfriend up something/learn the style without getting freaked/etc.

Now, this was a noble aim. But the plan was somewhat handicapped by;

-the fact that there were no easy lines waiting to be bolted on that cliff

-my friend's impatience, and his decision to neglect toproping his new 'easy routes' before placing the bolts

-his rather good form on the rock at the time. This left him unable to judge the difference between a gr14 move with a bolt at the waist, and a gr20 move with a bolt exactly halfway between one's waist and a ledge.

-boundless optimism

So, when the rock dust had cleared, there stood a couple of perfect beginner routes..........holds all face the wrong way, all bolts are in the wrong spots (reachy to clip off insecure holds, poor protection against ledge falls, and you clip during rather than before the hard bits)...........and they look, for all the world, like actual gr14's

Since my friend was cranking and fearless, he fearless cranked the first ascents and proceeded to convince himself that the grades were as he wished. Seeing as I had volunteered to edit the mini-guide, I dutifully went up to do the second ascents and confirm the grades...............slapped and cursed my way up, shitting myself about spooging off and hitting a ledge.......I was grinning from ear to ear.

Someone genuinely trying to perform a public service had accidently created some of the best sandbags ever.........I just wrote the guide in a way which reflected the self-deluding hopes of the FA. After all, who was I to decide what's safe 14 and what's sketchy 20?

Yeah, next thing they will want to build a climbers hut there...

I would suggest that more damage has been done to the environment by building the climbing hut than by leaving one rap station on Ben Lomond. Some climbers recently commented to me that it was easy to find where the rap station was (the one on the topo in the new guide written by the one and only Tastard) as the removal scars are visible from Mars. Nice one doofuses. I think the major trashing done at the Ben has been done by Tastard and his unholy alliance.

The climbers hut was built in the early 80's in consultation with National Park rangers who recommended the site. One of the main reasons for it being built was in the aftermath of Bob's accident in the 70's. The lack of a public shelter as a base for rescue operations near the cliffs was a hindrance in the ensueing rescue. It was clear to National parks, SES etc at the time, that a public shelter on the northern side of the mountain was needed. The fact that we have a nice hut to sleep in (near two other private huts in the area - scouts and scotch college) is a bonus. We're talking about the trashing of the crag Dr Doofus, not the already developed areas near the road.

I believe chin-nuts is a common affliction in Tasmania.

Interesting. So Parks were unable to make arrangements with the scouts, whose hut has been there since the 1930s, to use that facility in the future for rescue operations. Particularly with better parking and clear areas etc etc...

What facilities were used for the rescue in 2010?

Trashing of the crag is more than just the rock itself. PS. The removal scars are still there.
