Tradathon Challenge: WANNABE'S VS TATWOCians

Postby SNORT » Thu Feb 23, 2012 8:07 pm

So here’s the deal.

US Tired And Wanked Out Climbers aka TATWOCians challenge the WANNABE’s to a little competition at the Tradathon on the 17th March.
The rules are simple.
You are a WANNEBE if you are getting to your physical peak and a TAWOCian if you are past it.
Bruce Lee said Prime of Life is at age 32
Medical science reckons at age 34 we start losing our bone density and grey matter.
Now for purpose of this challenge, if you are under age 34 you are a WANNEBE and if you are over 34 you are a TAWOCian (
The challenge will start at 06h00 on the morning of the 17th and you have to be off the rock by 19h00 so we can all go to the spit braai.
Some rules:
So soloing allowed. You have to climb in pairs and safely. No undue run-outs are allowed to kinda save time.
All scores of pitches climbed will be added up and the total score of each group wins of grades of pitches climbed.
The losers buy the winners 2 drinks each at the spit braai.
A commemorative trophy will be awarded to the winners and a losers award to the losers.
You have to climb with someone in your TATWOC or WANNABE group. If you don’t, you have to buy everyone participating in the challenges a drink at the party but you can still score.
If you lead the pitch clean you get the grade score. Following is minus 2 grades.
If you fall you don’t lose points but you have to climb from the runner below the one you weighted.
If you sag or say “take” you lose 2 points.
If you aid a move you lose 2 points.
This will all be an honesty thing.
Squeaks is in charge of rounding up the WANNABE’s.

In the interests of safety

shouldn't "So Soloing Allowed" read "No Soloing Allowed"?
