Wow, gotta love that pic of Brian way up and out at Blouberg, exploring for hold and sequences, the absolute pinnacle of pleasure. Whats the story with this pitch, is it do-able..? Whats the pro like?

We recon that the pitch will go but it will go at 33 or so... A bolt would also need to be moved, or cheatstick used to extend a draw significantly. It's tough to say the least.

check out that exposure!! And look at that jam/layback pitch below! Clinton is out there doing this stuff why we are all on the forum arguing. Clint, you are the man! Up there with ADK. Just as hardcore and driven, a legend of SA climbing. About time we had an interview...Justin ( :

:lol: yeah, he figured the condom is no more safe than that under-cammed #5 cam and chucked it! What a great route! Thanks Paul :thumleft:

Although the photo of Alexandra Schweihart is awesome, I thought we'd decided that front page images should be kept local and lekker.

A german climber climbing in the US?

Local is certainly best :thumleft:
The picture has a bit of SA influence in that Clinton Martinengo also sent this route.

Then by extension are

a) All photos of the Nose front page material (because Andrew Porter climbed it)
b) All photos of Alexandra Schweihart front page material (because she climbed with a South African)

....pretty broad definition of local.

ZB get your panties out of a twist and relax. If you don't like the pic replace it with another good one!

Oooh! You wouldn't want to make that mistake! Justin, are you going to change policy anytime soon? It might be beneficial if you start a permit system where an imagine must be uploaded to a gallery so that it can go through an approval process by various government/climbing bodies prior to being allowed to be viewed publicly! :lol:

Yes, that was me, your friendly administrator :P You need to copy the 'image link location' from the gallery (you can't use the link location from the home page - i.e. I copied the link from this page in the gallery - http://www.climb.co.za/gallery2/display ... at=0&pos=1
