Climbing in the media

How did that route get that name? Jokes. Funny bits. Crag humour.

I once ate a Mc D burger and chips before walking up to Tafelberg, it was the worst and most tiring hike of life. I had almost no energy for the walk! The pink slime has scared me off fast food - except perhaps on special occasions at 2am :drunken:

had to laugh at the sone importer's add..a couple of years ago i delivered pizza to a house that had a similar wall to the one in the add. the drunk owner saw me eying it out, and then insisted (and ended up bribing me) that i climb it... he wont be doing that again.. those things are SUPER fragile :mrgreen:

Cams are more epic. Also why belay from the ground when you can belay from a bivy 3 meters up. :hapban
