The one thing I can’t stand about climbing is the walk-ins. And if you are into the nasty hard sh1t climbs I am sometimes the walk-ins can be immense. One time I swear I was walking for like 15 minutes. (When you’ve been on the trail for as long as the crankmeister, you have to go a long way off the beaten track, far away from your average punter). Anyway, what’s the point in wasting energy on that. They should bloody tarmac them all so you can drive right there, maybe even have the rope uncoiling from your goddamned boot. How cool would that be? Actually, if you sit back and think of the possbilities, the sky’s the f!cking limit. You could have like a roof shelter over the top to keep the rain off, vending machines for beer or climbing stuff. If you ask me the whole natural wilderness thing is plain old dead-end.
