|Just to make things clear to everyone, I have accepted a challenge to try the retrobolted version of what was once a bold route.........bold enough that I was never up for the risk. Now that it has 2 extra bolts, it's pretty unlikely that a fall will lead to injury (sorry to disappoint those of you who were hoping for that result).
A couple of other things have sprung to mind, which could turn this w/e into the Spring Racing Carnival of climbing. Tnd has reassured us all that he can indead onsight routes harder than 21.........how about we nominate a shortlist of 22's in the Blueys. Then on the w/e in question, one route is drawn from the hat, and he must put his money where his mouth is?
How fit is our favorite has-been, Stugang? No one knows, he used to be pretty good. We could put him on one gr21ish route every 20mins until he falls off or fails to reach the top before the time is up......of course it would also be open season on any form of heckling. Take bets on how many routes he can do before the wheels come off.
