So many PM's M9? Who are all these closet aid climbers? I say they should out themselves and share their dirty little secret with the world...

Simey and I will be there heading up an all star Nati aid climbing team. We call ourselves "Stiff Bruised
little fingers".

We will not be using any gear not invented prior to 1965.

Well Bren if you're keen for it we should do it. Have you been on original and direct before? She into Strange Ritual would be another good one in a day. I'd be keen for either....

Most calories in beer comes from the alcohol. Low carb isnt going to help very much. To lower calorie intake you should complete your transition to the dark side and drink light beer.

I don't know. Last I heard he was about to go climb Everest, but that would be a couple of years ago now...

The PM's accumulated over time. They are not all aid climbing related, but the closet brigade are growing in numbers! Heh, heh, heh.

Actually it may not surprise you to know that none are.

arrgghh!!!!!
So since just one week in December I've been obsessed with Buffalo and when I can finally get back there and annoy the crap out of someone experienced (and friendly like M9) whilst learning aid so I can jump on a big wall again with confidence this time! I've been buying gear for it, including a new rope (mmm, 70m Joker for $200) and planning my further climbing trips to reflect climbing on granite (and the fact that it's Joshua Tree) and bladi blah blah... only to find out someone's done the hard yards and it's (more or less) a free for all that are interested....
and I'm even back in Australia that weekend.....

enough whingeing from me.
I'm holding my fingers crossed that it's a great success and you guys will do it again for those of us that can't right now.

(I'm just counting down the days till I can finally touch rock and stop going insane.... stupid flat Alabama and stupid work)

Say M9,
I'm just back from kayaking across western Bass Strait, (where I thought about this thread!)
and want to experience some alternative NDE's. Can I tag along? Have under-utilised ets,
a couple of hooks in my rack, and can offer a ride to others from Blueys/Sydney.

i would keep the rope for something else (alpine climbing) joker 9.1mm are pretty thin, we had a 9.4 edelrid on ozzy and i was shitting myself seconding the roof pitch with the rope running over the edge of the roof lip. i have since brought an 10.5 just for aid

It is an open invitation to whoever wants to turn up, so you are more than welcome.
In fact the more that turn up the merrier.
If you have prior experience and are looking to maybe add to your repertoire of tricks / gain further efficiency(?), then it is all good. Even if you just want to get back into the aid-game and meet potential aid-climbing partners, then this could be another benefit.
I will primarily be focused on helping out folk wanting to learn more about the game, but I am not the sole proprietor of aid-knowledge. If others are also aid-climbing in the same general area - (celebrating the game!), they will help the weekend be a success by default, as folk new to the dark arts can compare technique / aiding styles, gear usage, racking systems, etc.

I envisage folk having opportunity to try things out first hand to see what works best for them re any aspirations they may have...

>a couple of hooks in my rack, and can offer a ride to others from Blueys/Sydney.

Yep bring your gear.

With yourself included, there are about 6 starters at the moment, though I appreciate peoples circumstances can change and nothing is etched in stone.

I will put up a list of user-ids likely to attend on this thread closer to the date, so that those who want to share transport, etc, can get in touch with each other; though in the words of ambyeok there is nothing to stop them...
>I say they should out themselves and share their dirty little secret with the world...
coming out beforehand on this thread, if they wish to facilitate those kind of logistics earlier!

I am also likely to book a Catani campsite, that others are welcome to share if they wish.

Post edit;
Checked out the Catani campsites booking arrangement. It seems the most convenient sites are already pre-booked for that weekend. There are still plenty left though, but the payment fee is required in full beforehand, and is non-refundable within 30 days if one should happen to cancel the booking...
Allegedly max of 6 people per site (@ total cost for 6 being $26), and being a month away with that number of starters already, it may be likely we will require a second site as well...
The other alternative is to simply take our chances on getting a site when we turn up as they reckon that they have sites for that purpose(?) on a 1st come 1st served basis due to being out of peak booking period.

All that referring to aid climbing as a game just made me lose the other game...
