Sounds great. Can someone put names and grades to the routes in the pics, my memory is fading.

And is the second pic a lesson in how to create rope drag? :)

The pics are cool but who are the assholes without helmets. I thought its a prerequisite to climb the tradathon with a helmet

Might be someone someone learning to lead... but I reckon the person chicken'ed off to the left (the off width being a separate route)!?

To quote the organisers of the Tradathon:

"Due to the fact that participation in this event is entirely voluntary, we cannot force anyone to wear a helmet.
The use of a helmet is highly recommended
"

Hey Guys

That is me in the corner at the stance, the guy leading is Jonothan Jubber, when I saw how the ropes were crossed I was quite shocked, no wonder he was batteling, and fighting.
What I was most annoyed about was how easy that pitch was, once I climbed it, I was like why didn't I just lead that part. So So So bummed. Any way next tradathon will be better.
