Regarding the Canadian Club ad (and slightly OT so apologies) - in August I went up the Kitzsteinhorn in Austria with the intent of trying the big roof there - 18M1 or something like that - that went over terrain pretty similar to the ad. Several moves of aid to a jug on the lip.
When we got there some local Alpine Club members were doing track maintenance around the base of the cliff. We chatted to them. My German wasn't quite good enough to pick it up first-hand, but my partner soon explained to me that the route we were thinking of trying was now strewn half-way down the valley - the roof had come loose sometime that summer and the whole climb was basically now rubble!
There is a TV ad for Blackberry "All You Need is Love" on air and online at the moment which opens with
a scene of some climbers at what looks like Monserrat in Spain. Unfortunately i can't find a version that i
can link to. It's playing on the homepage of theage.com.au and smh.com.au today...
