Monster swing??? Oh please..You gotta be smoking something pretty good... Check out Dan Osman in masters of stone five.. Now that's what I'd call a monster swing... Granted he's no longer with us.. but still.. :shock:

Looks like I'm not the only one who thinks your \"moster\" swing is pathetic.

:lol:

Yes Fagta, you're definitly the one to do all our rope tests.

What about the fun

Geez fellas lighten up. This is an on-line community not a mud slinging forum (but the recent past is starting to have me think otherwise).

Climbing is about having fun and this is not a competition.

Between you guys trying to vent your rat race frustrations on Fanta and Fanta actually going out and playing around at ‘Boven (apparently making the mistake to share it in a on-line community) you need not be an expert to see who is having the most fun. Go run in the \"monster\" race you can score more points there.

Fanta's swing does qualify as big.
Dan Osman's jumps where more like BASE jumping with a rope (he had to track while falling to place himself in the right spot to avoid hitting the trees) Dan Osman was on another level as far as I am concerned.

There can also be a lot of technical setup when setting up ropes for a swing... there was an accident at Muizenberg in February 2006 - Climbing excursion ends in tragedy so please be careful.

Yeah, everyone lighten up :P

Correct me if I'm wrong (I know you will) but isn't there a climb called \"Monster\" kinda in that area?
Have Fun...

Spot on Megawat, Alard's route tops out there... Ask him about the name not me... He was the 1 jumping when I was filming from the bottom...
Dano is certainly on a level of his own... RIP dude

Megawat, yes there is route with that name, and from the description it sounds like a Monster!!

Monster 29*****
It's the baddest and steepest route at Boven by far! No small holds on this one, but an absolute pump-fest. It's gonna become a super-classic!

Re Fanta's big swing, I think it's awesome!! Having rigged my own 30m bridge swing, I know it's a lot of fun!! Dark Horse & Johnny, have you ever done something like that....I think not! How about you guys go try it first (if you have the b*lls) and then give your opinion. Even better...do it without a rope :twisted:
