Witnesses. Damn. And I thought I'd executed the perfect crime.

>I clearly remember you having an argument with him about how hard thhe finish moves were - Malcolm was saying 'only grade 18!' - you were bitching that it was way harder. Funny stuff!

Things are always easier once you've done them! Not sure I'd call it an argument more a lively discussion. I recall those hard moves were at the end of the traverse going up??? But it's obviously a lot fresher in your mind than in mine (2001). I was thinking about that route all arvo when I should have been concentrating on other things - my hands started sweating inside my gloves and I thought I'd put a hole in one.

>Heres a pic from your ascent (1st September 2001!)

Nice bumshot!

>I pretty much plummeted from the position you are in onto bolt down to the left.

Nasty nasty.

> Chossy rock but i thought the route was awesome.


>The second pitch looked horrid though -worst rock i have ever seen in the Grampians - super sandy.

It's crazy - you're pulling on these cemented dinner plates the whole way waiting for one to rip! Really exciting and a bit like Gogarth. There's actually a choice of two finishing pitches - the left on is best.
