..(1)...SYL (31) KIM CARRIGAN 1981-1985

Make it onto the slab at the top ...and jump off (ima)

...(2)...Lord of the rings (31) STEFAN GLOWACZ 1986

Remarkably sustained face on thinner and thinner holds. If you fall off the slab you'll be in good company.(the crag )

...(3)...THE Lord of the rings (31) NICK SUTTER 1990s

Start at the weakness down right of "Wackford Squeers" and go fairly much straight up.(the crag)

...(4)...Destroyer of the rings(32) LEE COSSEY 2015

Awesome sustained face climbing linking Lord of the rings and Zorlac the destroyer. (thecrag)

..and finally to DDbro ....here's another metaphorical-analogy...4U to contemplate ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVg6gFmuRlE

...ya don't get it ?......let ima explain ...

...while most of the Australian 'new wave ' got bogged down in the psychological morass that prevailed ...in the wake of certain events on Makalu in 1983 .... KC powered ahead thru and to grade 29 ....30 ...and 31....

...in 1984 & 1985 .. no other Australian climber was climbing at that level ...


..... NO ONE !!!! ....

...Kim Carrigan and John Crunch Smoothy added a grade 23 direct start in 1984...

Come to think of it you've got a point lizard boy.

History tells us if KC had never climbed in Yosemite then there is no way Alex Honnold would ever have soloed Free Nelson Mandela on el cap.

We'd all be like m9 smashing our way up omega block. Prolly wouldn't be the internet. Prolly wouldn't be the kardashians.....come to think of it are you sure KC isn't one of em? He always had the hair all he'd need is a fat arse and he'd be set.

Cheers Liz. That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me.

Seeing you are the master I need a hand - I can neither think of a tasteful nor distasteful way of trolling ODH on the honald thread with a cross reference to the QUT inability to belay one. Reckon I'm 60% to making hero cry with some sport climbing reference to honald blindly bomming onto the anchors when you get to the top. but the pitch and tone just ain't right.

What would you do?

>>>KC ... climbed in Yosemite...

KC was climbing in Yosemite thru-out 1977 .....when this galloping-rythm-section of a beast would have been echoing thru-out THE VALLEY ...

...its got POWER...PROJECTION...PITCH ...&...TONE ..........and cute chicks...and a drummer whose beard rivals the one KC had at the time ...

Dalai- it wasn't that late with time difference. I kinda got sucked into watching Fox News live broadcast of us senate enquiry. Like climbing offwidths - Excruciating but strangely addictive.

Odd - still 3 weeks to Malaysia. Working on a Singapore plastic tour guide

Liz I only clicked the Devo link just now - love it. Funny thing is twisted sister show up as the next song which is weird given my recent Fox News obsession.

Ffs twisted sister are regulars on Fox News the prime time show crosses regularly to a poxy stage in a shopping mall to watch the old farts bang out another rendition of we aren't gunna take it to a bunch of redneck shoppers. Jeez the only people that go to shopping malls in the states these days are those who can't afford internet shopping and fox viewers
