In reply to Lemony: does an egg box consist of bumps separated by holes, or holes separated by bumps? looks like the same difference between the two diagrams!

I agree, there is no reason why 5 year olds shouldn't get the chance to work in marketing departments as long as their schooling doesn't suffer.

The positive grain story...

If you look closely at the diagram, you will see that the surface area around the positive grain 'bump' is larger than the surface area the 'negative grain' hole. If you take any surface, a bump naturally becomes a hole by turning that surface upside down. It's definitely a chicken and egg story. What we (are trying!) to say is that on a positive grain surface, the volume between the bumps is large enough to prevent the accumulation of dirt and hence the holds will keep their 'rough' surface for a long time. If there is a simple and clear way of saying (or showing) just that, we would welcome the input!

You diagram looks more like a communication to aliens. Nice looking holds despite the diagram!
