Fark me mate, wtf is your problem?!

1) First off, I couldn't give a toss what the grades are and their relative conversion in Ewbank is, I was just psyched to climb some amazing routes in a pretty special place. The grades are simply an indication of difficulty. Despite what you might think mate, more often than not if you are talking about a route, people will invariably ask the grade, hence why I listed them in the TR.

2) As far as I'm aware, 7a is 23 and 8a is 29... If the grades are out of whack, it's certainly not intentional.,r:2,s:0&tx=57&ty=47&biw=1227&bih=639

3) Captains of crush make those hand grip thing's
A few of us thought it would be a fun name for a climbing blog.

I met you a long time ago damo, and you seemed like a pretty decent bloke. Clearly I was wrong... Trolling, sledging for no reason and generally being a douche, I can never understand why some people feel the need to bring others down.... I didn't realise that writing a little TR about my first big OS trip would make me a number dropping hero.
