..(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 ...

https://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 !!!! ....
