Trad Gear and Bouldering Wall Clearout

Can you stop referring to that wooden eyesore as a bouldering wall, it's very very far from that. Maybe the producer of that new average-looking climbing flick Smitten will buy it. Every Aussie climbing movie has some terrible plastic pulling in it.

Wow, some pointless hate from Aido. Thanks for your input.

What size street shoe do you normally wear, Evan?

US 12 or 13. My new Docs are a UK 12 and they're a bit big.

How fun is the woody dissing game?

Hey Grangrump, if you think that plank is worth $300, maybe you'd be interested in buying the best woody in canberra......I reckon its a steal at $5000, given what you're prepared to pay for something totally useless.

Yeah, yeah, what ever, haters gonna hate.

That you think a woody is motivation for climbing, suggests pretty strongly, that you and I climb for different reasons.

You don't have any reasons for climbing evan, you're an ex-climber.

A woody isn't motivation for climbing, its a tool. Now, just imagine my woody as a sweet 36V Panasonic, whilst yours is a shitty Ozito you picked up at Bunnings for $ can probably still get the job done with the Ozito, but the finish'll be rough as guts, the process will be unpleasant, and you'll think of every excuse to put the job off, because working with cheap tools isn't fun!

Nah, it's training that isn't fun. Climbing rocks is though.

No ones bid for the nuts or brass wires so I'll kick it off at $50 + postage for the lot.

Ignore the haters mate. All this talk in particular from ODH over the years dissing everyone elses climbing walls but never willing to post his for all to critique.

Adrian might just be bitter he wasn't asked to be in Smitten is my guess and Seth just thought he would join in because he had nothing better to do at the time?

How about $220 for all except the #4?

Thanks Dalai, fortunately I'm pretty thick skinned. I find it slightly hilarious too. I suspect ODH is taking the piss, but the others, it's excellent that they feel the need to try and drag others down, publicly.

Friday Update, it's getting complex so I'll see what I can do.

>Black Diamond cams
0.75 Sturge - $40
1 Sturge - $40
2 Sturge - $40 Runnit - $50
4 (in Tassie) - Philtown - $50

Sturge $220 for all but the #4.

>Rock Empire cams
- SBM $100 for the 4 largest

>Wild Country hexes
BC - $40
Philtown - $50

>Rock Empire brass wires.
>Nuts ABC
Jase $50 for all the nuts.

>Wild Country Helium quick draws

>Old trad draws, 11 of them, 5 very extendable. DavidN - Something. Maybe beer?
Dangermouth - $120 for all 16 draws. That's better than beer.

>Shoes - Scarpa Vision

>Scarpa women's shoes

>Women's Black Diamond harness small

>Petrzl helmet. Small and very light

>Bouldering pad - Whippet

>Tools of the Adventure big chalk bucket

Depends, schooners or take aways? Can I wear depends? saves going to the loo all the time.

After $60 he may need someone else to go to the bar for him but I reckon he could get through $120 of beer in a day.

You're going to piss $120 worth of beer into an adult diaper? Those things must pack a lot of sphagnum!
