I often read this sentiment. The truth is that Morialta consists of about 10 crags that are regularly
climbed on and, like most climbing areas, they consist of good bits and not so good bits. The good
bits with the popular climbs are mostly solid quartzite, well cleaned and rarely shed holds these days.
99% of Adelaide climbers learning to lead outdoors go to Morialta so, not surprisingly, there's the
occasional grounder. They clip up a 16 at the gym and then jump on Muesli... Don't blame the rock for
gear falling out of placements!

Then you hear the rubbish about the ground being too close. Well, just like at most crags, you start at
the bottom and climb up and when you get high enough the ground isn't close any more!

Given an adequate rack, my point is that if you're good at leading you shouldn't have a problem and if
you're poor at leading then, yeah, you shouldn't be keen to lead at Morialta (or anywhere else!)
