I'm totally stoked that I ticked (pink point) These People are Sandwiches on my second go. (Making it my 3rd 22)

I'm even more stoked that a scary single point lower off was removed a couple weeks earlier so I didn't die lowering off the damn thing! (thank you WM)

Stoked that I went to the local bouldering crag and managed to stick a move I've been trying for months, not once but twice! Now to figure out the next move...

It goes up the prow the guys in this video are traversing under: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1IFcUK01dc (warning: best to mute the audio to avoid inane seppo chatter and music).

I'm kind of stoked that I climbed a new route at Badgery's Lookout in the Southern Highlands, yesterday afternoon.

Mainly stoked because I didn't die. I'm actually a bit pissed off with myself for getting in a position where going up was the only real option.

The route was steep, chossy and poorly protected. A fall off the crux would have landed me onto a very nasty back-breaking pinnacle. I am an idiot.

Anyway, I've named the climb 'The Polished Turd' 17R and next time I go climbing I'm going to be clipping some fat rings.

>'The Polished Turd'
Is that just along from Cart Dior? A climb led by myself and seconded by Mike Carter that takes the corner above the car wreck at the bottom of Badgeries Lookout? (Mike suggested the name as a pun!).

Interesting area.
Others climbed some lines there before we did in 1988. We added a heap more (all trad), but I noticed in Rock Mag someone came along and bolted (& renamed), many of those same lines in the mid 90's.
My guess (without referring to old notes), is that there are probably twenty lines already done there by us starting from the short end of the N-S cliffline and running all the way around the W-E portion of it and including a small section on the S-N (high stuff) portion that is located east of the lookout above the car wreck.

M9, I still have the original guide of the 1988 climbs (written in biro in an excercise book) somewhere.

Polished Turd is actually a bit before Cart Dior, which now sports a line of carrots, amazingly enough! It's still a nice line but also still very dirty.

Yes, all your old routes have been bolted and renamed by someone I shall not name. Brett (who i was climbing with) climbed Frog's Nose 18 (old name) which now sports 3 bolts.

There is even a bolt at the top of the easy twin cracks climb, where you climb around the little chockstone/roof thing.

I wonder what Carter is up to these days? I used to enjoy climbing with Mike.

Sad, and unnecessary.

I suppose they thought they were having an adventure in an undiscovered location!

... some of the newer generations have much to learn about adventure.

Back to topic.
I am stoked for wallwombats new bolt-free route.

It was an experience but I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemy.

M9 I'm stoked because what a coincidence, I was just sorting thru files from my Tallong Wilderness Centre days on Monday night and found a photocopy of the hand-written notes re these climbs with your names on them.

I'm totally stoked, after rejecting a lung transplant from 5 years back then waiting 6-9 months for a suitable donor set, my friend Gav finally got lucky again last Monday, his 46th birthday: he's now equipped with new airbags, pink again and fighting hard.

On a far more superficial note, I'm stoked with my new bike. I virtually can't ride it, but it's fun finding the number of ways that I'm shiit.

Unless you have specific route goals, power is usually better as the option for day one and endurance day two...

Either way, enjoy! :-)

Yeah Dalai that is the plan that makes the most sense, but i am like a dog with 6 c*cks when i am bouldering so i just blow my self out totally on the the first day and can,t do squat on the second.
