Do you have to go back to 1976 to find the last significant international visitor to Canberra?

So's Simey trying to update his Grampians guide. And his 100 classic climbs of Australia. And ACIA instruction manual. Trying can take a long time. It can get quite trying.

Oh the one decent bit of cliff that has one decent route on it that you have to climb the not so great Kundalini to get to? No, because we had been burnt out by the averageness of Kundalini.

I'm not rich, but i'm sort of notorious. Does that count? Seriously, I stayed in a squat in argentiere for 3 seasons 2005-7. Paid normal camping fees in 2008. Caught a few cable cars at about 20euro each, but you can walk if you really want. stayed in alpine huts for a mere 6 euro a night, but you could suffer through camping in the snow if you really want. In return, everything I did on the Blatiere was amazing. Same with the envers. the peigne, the valley blanche and the brevant also offer more than their fair share of amazing routes. Then there was switzerland. really, valle di mello was the last place I'd bother going back to after 5 seasons in europe.

It might be getting a bit bored now. Seems to have been there a while.
