    we will be taking all our climbing gear but i was wondering how to clean it to oz standard?!?!? :wacko:

     

     

    i'll put the harnesses and the ropes in the washing machine (no detergent).

    but i still have 100s carabiners and shoes and and and ..... ?!?!

     

     

    has anyone done that?!? :chatterbox:

    Hi mozzy, Im defo bringing my climbing gear over, Im going to jet wash my camming devices and my nuts:arghh: then give them a light spray with jeys as alex said.

    as for harness rope and shoes, i will give the rope a wash but not harness if theres no mud then shippers said it will be ok.

    Have you checked out climbing in SA, I want to head over to flinders ranges eventually.

    haven't checked out anything yet re climbing!

    but we do hope there is some decent climbing around!!

     

    i've washed the harnesses and all the bags in the washing machine earlier - in a pillowcase - i'll let you know the outcome ;)

     

    i see you also like kiteboarding/surfing?

    my OH wants to learn that one too :jiggy:

    If you want to go to the Flinders Ranges you are looking at a good 2 1/2 hour drive to get to the start of the ranges and an hour or more to get to the good bits.

     

    there is a virtual reality face you can try

    its in the north east suburbs of Holden Hill, I go past there most days and it always looks busy.

    Ive done a bit of boarding but could certainly benefit fron some pro tutorial,

    Prices are not to bad for the gear, If you buy the gear from these you get the course free.

    Muppetbro was into this not sure if hes still in country or not.
