...Reinhold was climbing grade 25 in 1969...but then lost lots of toes on his epic traverse of Nanga Parbat in 1970...he the found he was not too flash at crag climbing anymore sans toes ...so he focused on what he regarded as the ' mountaineers heaven ' - the Himalayas. He did most of his climbing there during the KC years...

Magnitude 2.5 earthquake at Myrtleford (near base of Mt Buffalo), occurred at 1.47 am 13/12/18.
Have also had heaps of rain overnight / early hours of this morning, with flash flooding stranding motorists on Hume Hwy in the Wangaratta area...

~> There may be some blocks loosened or lost, off climbs at Mt Buffalo as a result?

Speaking of Buffalo; an Aidfest report is in the making but hasnít been finalised for publication yet. One interesting facet of the event was that the slackliner contingent doubled our attendance numbers!

Climbing extreme trends - overbolting Gramps routes here vs simul climbing without pro in Yosemite...

Cause for pause and reconsideration?
