I agree about that difference. Joe and doug scott on th orge and the list goes on were way hard. Toughening up for a non life threatening activity does not even rate in that relm. That's just being strong, not hard.

Andy Pollit climbed up to grade 32 on a diet of Cherry Ripes, VB and Benson and Hedges.
He was a real man

WWS gets my vote for going hard.
So many memorable 'incidents' - despite which he pushed through - couple are listed below.
On Gigantor (Dogface) whilst weighting a big Camalot it ripped and smacked him square in the face. Result? Broken nose and blood everywhere. Didn't stop him though - he got straight back up there......and did the same thing again! This time it slowed him down a bit and he was relegated to concussed belay duty. No respite though on the mid-winter jaunt - topping out well after dark.

Also on Dogface I watch one of his slippers tumble into the oblivion - no probs, he just got up there and cranked out his lead (a 22 pitch) with only one boot on!

And then there was Echo Crack - thin on big gear - he leaped frogged two cams the whole of the last pitch - he was way out there, I definately felt like I should be untying from the belay as there was no way it would have held a fall. Can't imagine the head trip he was having up there though!

In summary, 'the Dude delivers' - hoping age won't slow you down any!

I made him lead The Great Unwashed at piddo after he had eaten a particularly dodgy hamburger from a Mount Vic roadhouse. He spent more time throwing up at the top than he did setting up the belay. I was sitting at the base of the climb with Harry Luxford and his partner and all we could hear was Dude spewing his guts up. Don't know what harry thought of it all.

Adam darragh went on a new routing trip to choalotse (sp?). He got crook. His mates did what I think was a new route. He got out of the camp tent and soloed it. Can't find my himalayan alpine style book at present but that's an Ali G Hardman respect call. Also jake and lee on riders on the storm and what about vera wong.....

I know a certain Kweeeeenzlairnder who lives on a diet of Winnie Blues and Coopers Red, who can get off the couch after a few years and climb 30s. he's a skinny runt though

I'd love to hear of some of Maccas solo aid stories - weighting every bit of gear in shitty rock, long slow laborious process, plenty of time and space to think of life and what the *uck you are doing - bound to be a few moments of craziness to be elevated to hardman status!
