|TR: old/new (who knows?) routing
Is this Alan fella from Port Macquarie still around? Anyone else on Chockstone in PortM? I moved up a year ago, interested in hearing from any other climbers in the area.

This Trip Report is 19 months old and the author of it doesn't log in too often, not that he may not lurk on Chocky anyway, so I would try PM'ing him or emailing him if he has it listed in his profile.
I just PM'd you with a non-Chockstone climber contact.
So, no response from davidn, but it seems that all of his "first ascent" descriptions on The Crag have been removed.......and his profile on that site (which contained the laughable claim "hardest trad ascent-29") has also vanished from view.......thereby showing that he still reads this shit, and it still gets to him :)
