Re: NZ

I'm not into competition climbing and very rarely get along to any of the comps due to time/work constraints but it never ceases to amaze me that a country with a population of just over 4 million keeps churning these guys out (ladies included) and if you allow for all the other top climbers NZ has that either don't make the finals or don't even compete; we box way above our weight.

I agree with Drew; NZ rocks big time.............................................. ................and that doesn't inlclude last night's little richter wake me up.
