hardware,

Your going to Castle hill on Thursday? This thursday?? Well that's a coincidence, I'm heading out there
Thursday too!!!
Do you have yourself an automobile? I would pay you for a lift in choc chip muffins made by me!!
But I wont get to Christchurch til 4pm, but bouldering after 5pm is definatley where the friction is at!!
You want in don't you??
Send me a text +61412612701
Or email me, I might be feeling rich and spend more money on internet :)

Josh,
RATM freaken killed it. I was in the 2nd row, and can honestly say it was the single best concert going experience I have had ever (by a long way). Makes me a little dissapointed I missed out on Tuesdays gig (tried to get floor tickets, and by the time I knew I had missed out on them, the seating was sold out as well).

Still after all these years they are the best band ever...

Later,

Pete.

best thing about RATM is the sort of crowds they attract! nothing quite so ironic as a bunch of meathead, muslim fearing, bogans, bouncing around yelling and screaming to a band singing about racism, American imperialism, and third world poverty.

It's called "broken leg". Don't watch it if you're squeamish.

Not surprising ...
... sounds to me like the usual 'happy collective*' that we are on Chocky! (sport vs trad vs boulder vs aid vs dogz@crags vs etc!)


(*~> need to warm ourselves by the common fire again, as the overall thingy is generally good imo).

Happens incredibly easily doesn't it ...

What was his spotter doing (apart from scampering at the end), I wonder?

Problem looks like the classic 7A problem (first 7A in the forest and done in 1960!) L'Abattoir on the Carnage boulder at Bas Cuvier.

Great problem! Glad I didn't see that before I did it sans spotter and mats - well I wouldn't suggest the coir doormat would have really helped ;-)

It is well named!

Every problem on this boulder is stellar!!! And yes in hindsight very well named...

The left hand version of this problem is called L'Hélicoptère due to the way people are thrown off missing the final jug ;-)
