Sounds great. Can someone put names and grades to the routes in the pics, my memory is fading.

And is the second pic a lesson in how to create rope drag? :)

The pics are cool but who are the assholes without helmets. I thought its a prerequisite to climb the tradathon with a helmet

Might be someone someone learning to lead... but I reckon the person chicken'ed off to the left (the off width being a separate route)!?

To quote the organisers of the Tradathon:

"Due to the fact that participation in this event is entirely voluntary, we cannot force anyone to wear a helmet.
The use of a helmet is highly recommended

Hey Guys

That is me in the corner at the stance, the guy leading is Jonothan Jubber, when I saw how the ropes were crossed I was quite shocked, no wonder he was batteling, and fighting.
What I was most annoyed about was how easy that pitch was, once I climbed it, I was like why didn't I just lead that part. So So So bummed. Any way next tradathon will be better.
Don't cut that which you can untie. Traddies are hard core, they can hang on their nuts.
