I want a two-way bet. If ODH onsights it, I will donate $50 to the ARG. If he fails for whatever reason, he cannot write anything but pleasantries and nice things about other people on chockstone for the following 2 weeks.

I've been on Die Fox Die this year, and it was slimy in a few places but you could avoid them with no change to grade. Great climb, especially if you have fat fingers. The rest of the crag however...

No idea who you are talking to Cliff D about fav climbs at Squish, but I'll throw some climbs in for ya!

The Grand Wall - Obviously. Sustained crack climbing, mostly mid 10's, every pitch quite different from the rest. A must do.

High Plains Drifter - Stunning gold camalot crack that goes forever into an 11c 2nd pitch.

Unfinished Symphony - THE line on The Apron. Sustained thin corner climbing in the high 10's.

Every crack along the base of The Grand, all 5 stars - Exasperator, Rutabega, Seasoned in the Sun, Pitch in Time...

And of course the rad aid line I did last week on The Sherrifs Badge, Cowboys and Indians. Mad exposure through a large roof, lot's of hooking n heading, super long pitches.

Off to do Liquid Gold in two days...5 pitches of 10/11 cracks, 70 metre crux pitch crack.

Get some!

Dunno how we got onto talking about Squamish. I reckon a big part of the awesomeness over there is the consistent quality. As our lucky gill-endowed brother just suggested, doing a run of all the routes on the base of the Grand is an amazing day (I'm particularly fond of Apron Strings, it's everything you'd hope for in a sandbagged gr18 layback flake). I would also say that Clean Crack and Crescent Crack are brilliant, but you're not supposed to go there, so I can't.......

Pet Wall is one of the best compact sport crags in the world, why the hell do so few people climb there? I could only find partners on two days, but everything we got on was rock n roll, The Couch and Black Water are two of the best pitches I've ever climbed!.............ah, fond memories of big fir trees, perfect black granite, and warm sunshine which is magically lower in the type of radiation that burns your face off :)

Not sure how we got there either, but thanks for the tick list boys

Hope you get on LG soon fish cos the weather is turning crap later in the week...

Was eyeing off High Plains Drifter the other week from Angels Crest, but need to get my jamming up to scratch first...

Yeah, i see that weather....time to go aiding again I guess. LG then run to the Squaw and do The Great Game or Right Wing.

Where are you trog? Whis?

ODH, every time I head down to the Malamute, there are at least another dozen running on the tracks. As I'm sure you know, no one follows the rules. Caboose, Clean and Crescent Cracks are unrivaled, and fark how good is Overly Hanging Out?!?!?!?!

Guys are possibly still in the queue at the Lithgow hospital emergency department for ODH to be looked at?

Don't you mean "Chockstone guys are still forming a queue at the Lithgow emergency department to look at ODH"?

Lithgow Hospital only pretends to be a hospital. They don't have X-ray machines or actually treat people there. ODH would be better off going down the hill to Westmead.

This thread started promisingly with indignation, name-calling, threats to chop, challenges etc, then at some point degenerated into semi-serious discussion about ethics. Who knows where it goes now?

Update: jokes aside - ODH is doing OK. Doc reckons his ankles will be back to 100% pretty soon. His left knee is another question.

Yeah. It was a pretty big fall. I just ask that everyone is restrained until the facts come out of the whole debacle. Sorry Damo, I thought u said safe.

ODH got hurt then, I take it. That sucks, however it happened.

I wish him a full and speedy recovery.
