Hmm, … interesting angle there.
I often find it is the ‘not knowing’ aspect of whether I will fall that is the mental blockage component!
Glass half full or half empty thing happening I suppose ... ?
Hey Macciza, I have not climbed on Dogface but I do have a good background on Sydney seacliffs (similar sandfests in places).
Your route 'The Pecker Route'; ... is it nailed peckers, or 'clean aid' peckers ie hand placed?
Also do you know the history of who placed ('65) and who chopped ('67) the bolt ladder?
I am half interested in checking it, and also '21st Century Aid', out sometime ...
& another Q, ... does 21st C.A. finish up Colossus for it's final pitch?
Would be good if your site 'M8 - Aussie Aid Climbing' here had further info or topo of same.
Love the zoomify!
