To put this into perspective I climbed for over a decade and instructed for 7. I also won the only comp / state champs I ever entered and I saw the sunrise the morning of the event that was at lunch time.

I managed to climb a grade 24 and got within a bees dick to a 25. This is a grade 38 and yes it starts at 1.

When climbing hard I was climbing 3 days a week and training 3 nights a week any an indoor climbing gym that I also worked at that involved about another 10 hours a week of climbing and instructing. Plus there was other sports I was doing each week.

These guys are unbelievable. The subltle movements are off the graph and complexity of the sequences are incredible.

Didn't know you were a climber Brenton, I thought I was the only one here. Currently sitting around 20/21 doing outdoor sport lead climbing. If I put my mind to it I could get better, but the training is a big commitment.

Couple of pics from some recent multi pitch routes in the Blue mountains, but lately I've been going out to the sea cliffs at Vaucluse where there are some long single pitch sport climbs.

 No thanks seems a but too high for me :/ good on you guys for pursuing an awesome hobby.  I'll just stick to my mountain biking,  far less distance to fall.

It is an amazing sport.

The 20/21 grade was a hard one to get past, at that level it takes a step in technique and strength to get through.
I was sitting at the 20 ish grade for a while and then spent a week at Arapalies instructing students and taking them on multi pitch climb of grade 17-18 for a week. I then went back to Araps a week later for a week with mates and during that time they wanted to push some harder climbs and since I was climbing better than them I was always leading the harder pitches and suddenly I was onsiting 22 on Natural gear.


here is me on "Have a good flight" at araps, grade 25, I got past all the hard parts and pumped out just before the top  :mad:
