Are you nuts?




170 000 bucks could by a crag!!!!



but i did the calculations for you lazy guys....

if little johnny and friend paid R20 each to race up this gold coated fun fair ride which at a modest guess would take about ten minutes, they would have to climb (and pay) ,day and night, for just under 30 days in order for you to pay off your solid investment. Not bad under.. under a month, the bank wouldn't even charge you interest!

Where do i sign???

Interesting Facts

a: little johnny would have climbed the wall 4250 times in the month

b: ..at 10m high thats 42 500m of climbing (42.5km)

c: at an average of a hold every 50cm little johnny would have cranked down 85 000 times in that month.

d: little johnny weighs 48kg.

e: therefore little johnny effectively lifted 4 080 000kg in that month.

:lol: :lol:

The trouble with a comercial wall is the amount of weekends(climbing time) that will be spent at fairs, belaying little Johnnys. Running a wall is not realy climbing. Chatting to little Johnny's mommy...that's what its all about.

Snowman you silly sod. What where you thinking trying to sell a bloody climbing wall at R170k? Investment my arse, you won`t make a cent out ofit. Paint it with high octane and put a match to it.

This mobile climbing wall has paid for 5 different overseas climbing trips. So in the ten or so years that I have owned and run it, it has been very worth my while. Am selling because am tired of belaying kids and adults on climbing walls. Last year December we did 10 000 climbs in just 14 days. Thats' over 700 climbs per day and after doing that sort of belaying you need a rest (or new arms) and a climbing holiday.


Hope that answers some of your questions.... if Johnny is really that interested in repeated climbing I usually drop the price to R15 (got to keep a good customer :wink: )
