Having had one of those, I'd say that's about right.

>if wws is after "funny" stories the mr witham's write up of the "Beavis descent route" at onkaparinga must rate pretty high.

From the 1992 publication "Bonkas in the Onkas":
Beavis Descent Route 200m 32
Peter's amazing solo and unrepeated descent was probably the first climb anywhere in the world at this standard. Move up onto a loose block. When it gives way dive backwards through the shrubs and down a grassy slope. Hightail it over the boulders gaining enough momentum to clear the gum trees (first crux). Now leap from the top of Waterloo Wall and try desperately to land in the reeds (second crux). FFD Peter Beavis and a rescue party 16/11/82
