Yep. Also scooped the pools with worst naming theme, oldest climbing team and the honours keep rolling in.

I did rang them and found they have some, i'll be in town tomorrow so fingers crossed they last til then. Actually, maybe I should ring again and get them to hold one for me.

I'm sure that worked at 7.13 pm. Talk about reading about hard pussy climbs, that is night time porn for sure. Did you camp the night on the footpath at their front door instead?

I made the list! My one and only route in the guides is described as a nightmare ... although critiquing it for rock quality and vegetation at Dreamtime seems a little rich. The only reason my route is any looser than the rest of the crag is I did it ground up, not preinspected with a crow bar and pick axe!

No, that's the lie down spot (there's a bed in the slot at Adam's feet).......although his "head on a pillow" rest looks fairly cush as well.

So is this here "Taipan Wall" good or not? Cuz I'm trying to decide if it's worth flying over from 'Merica to check it out and I "can't be bothered" unless at least 25% of the grade 25's and up are 4 stars...

No. It's grossly overhyped and the few good routes are crowded with wannabes. You wouldn' t like it.
