Looking at the picture he is drilling towards the ground. I will thank people not to make any more silly comments on this forum about my team. If this occurs I will lock the thread. Thanks all.

Time-out. It's lunchtime, and time for a chat. Reinhard Grussler (seated) takes a much-needed rest while chatting to Stephan Meng (right). Reinhard was unwell all weekend but still worked incredibly hard on the project. Thanks Reinhard!

perspective and foreshortening... Renaissance paintings, brunelleschi, michelangelo

There's a thing called foreshortening which is linked to the perspective or angle with which the picture is taken.... only those beams that are at right angles to the viewers perspective (face on) can be measured see or be able to measure the angle of the wall a side profile photo needs to be taken.

Good work Vic climbers. This is a great example of community spirit..... very impressive.

Really good work guys. Now could you put it on low-loader and bring it up to Nati. It would look good next to the skateboard park.
11:04:30 AM
Hi Kieran - Amusingly, we could! It came in bits and we bolted it together on site :-)

11:09:11 AM
I am interested to know - who actually 'owns' this structure? Lets say in the future they decide to move
the freeway - or the area is classed as dangerously flood prone. Can we just dismantle the wall and move
it somewhere else? - or does Parks Vic own it?

Would depend on the terms of whatever agreement the VCC and the wall "occupy" the space under but the basic principle would be that if you installed it, and you can take it away without doing significant damage to the "land", then it's yours.
11:40:29 AM
It will be insured as an asset under the Parks Vic insurance policy. The VCC does not have the funds to take out public liability insurance on the bouldering walls. Parks Victoria is able to easily absorb it into their park costs.

11:49:50 AM
So Parks Vic own it then?

3:26:00 PM
The structure looks great! Keep up the great work everyone and great organising Jac!
