ODH - sorry dude can you cut me some slack. I'm not that confident and I need support. One of the questions is what is your strategy if you backclip?

First I didn't know what it meant. I googled it and it means clipping a draw so the end of the rope that goes to you the leader is facing the wall.

Yadda yadda yadda .....Ok I get that....small chance of unclipping if you fall. As for a strategy wtf! Surely the answer is "first realise you clipped back to front dipshit".

Then after that isn't it a case of "it depends". This is so stupid cos the whole strategy thing is predicated on the fact you notice the mistake.

Then after that I'm like is the draw long and floppy like simeys cжck? Or short and ramrod hard like Eduardos? Which direction am I climbing? How run out am I? Where is the next preplaced draw? How easy/ hard is the climb? How pumped am I? Etc etc.

I only get a postage stamp size box to answer - please gimme some tipz. Do I write small or draw a picture or ask for more paper or give up and just go sightseeing in KL ?!???!!!@&!

You're in a no win situation, probably best to try and get a laugh out of the examiners. Maybe draw a picture of Ed's junk, full scale, obviously don't go outside the borders of the box provided.

My memory of the 80s is a little blurry and although I don't recall any moment of being naked with you, if such a moment did exist then I am not surprised that I was floppy at the time.

Eduardo on the other hand always had a thing for you.

here ya go boys...here's a sound track 4 yer smutty convo....this # 1 hit was looping thru the brains of the ' new wave ' ....while they were busy repeating Hot Henry Barber's routes ...and seiging the sh#t out of the first grade 24z......in 1976...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f98DOYcfIJ4

...and here's Rod Young ...getting titillated by ' Miss February ' ...high up the grampians........






...meanwhile in da VALLEY...

http://www.gq.com/story/stonemasters-rock-climbing-oral-history

'...Long: I couldnít for the life of me, looking back, tell you why any female would ever find anybody in Camp 4 the least bit interesting. Cause nobody had much money. The lifestyle was very ascetic. It was the diametric opposite of anything that would normally be considered romantic. Save that a lot of the people were super young, super fit, and just hot people. I guess I still find it hard to believe. The point is there was always a crazy amount of girls around. It was like Woodstock forever...'

...FROM COAST TO COAST...KCz climbs continue to inspire , challenge and enthuse new generations of rock climbers ...



KGB (26) ...West Oz...

'...Mega Classic...I found it was easier once I found the sequence and beta. Some faffing around at the start before big launch to "jugs".
Some strong bouldery moves before some more jugs and the lip. Final hard move over the lip to glory. Amazing climb =)...' (Zhangter P @ thecrag)





APLINE (12)...Tassie...



...Paul Thompson (not the dude above or below )...had this to say on thecrag...

'...A dawn-free-solo contriving myself onto the pink Aplite streak for superior climbing (and harder moves). Absolutely freaking stunning...'






MAKALU & MT EVEREST ...RIP Mark Moorhead ...Bill Denz...Fred From ...Craig Nottle...etal...




...Reinhold Messner climbed most of his 14 x 8000 metre peaks ...during the Carrigan Years ...here he is on Mt Everest...in 1978 ...

..........................................................................

...youv got street walking...then bush walking ...then scrambling...then rock climbing ...

...serious scrambling morphs into ' rock climbing ' at about grade 12...

...between 1975 ( Apline ) and 1985 (SYL)... Kim climbed from grade 12 to grade 31 ......the 20 grades of ' rock climbing ' that had been established anywhere on the planet at the time ...


...and then came Punks ...

Pretty stoked to get my first ever lead pass for a gym. To think I've been unqualified for so long. It was a bloody close call too as those bloody grigris are pesky buggers if your not used to them. However I think I distracted her enough with my essay on the 38 possible scenarios and responses to a back clip that she forgot I kept letting go the rope.

Sherbet were known as ' frock rock ' as compared to ACDC (' c--k rock ' )
...but they still cum up with the best bass line and lead guitar solo of the Carrigan Years...
