Retrobolting at Nowra 22-Jun-2012 At 11:56:48 AM GoUp!
So let me see if I understand this correctly.......

You're the 'mayor' of Nowra trying to screen out who can vote for you and your self interests and stuff everybody else who has an opinion on the matter. What a novel take on dodging ethics - bang the drum, declare you've got the numbers (be it severely biased) and then implement your grand plan - what a sham! And for what selfish reason but to save your poor ankles!

I love Nowra but it (or maybe a I should more correctly say some of the people who climb there) seems to be a Bemuda triangle with regards to respecting previous style and acievements. Whilst you're at it, if you're going to retro then you may aswell change the name and grade aswell ....doh, thats been done recently too. Maybe this is all a take on intergeneration equality where the next mob get a chance to do rehashed first ascents....first ascent of retrobolted line after stick-clipping first half of the route ......doesn't really have the same cut and thrust of the orginal.....each to their own though.
