Serpentine

By | Instagrams | No Comments

A very focused Lynn Hill on her actual send of the mega-classic Serpentine (29), Taipan Wall in the #Grampians, back in 2000 when I was shooting on assignment for @thenorthface. Shooting action on 40 ISO film in the shade was always a challenge which I can’t say I really miss, except, hmmm, those colours… #film #velvia #nofilter #tbt #throwback #nikon @nikon_australia @thinktankphoto @lasportivagram @lasportivaaustralia

Ghetto Superstar

By | Instagrams | No Comments

It boggled my mind a bit last year when I heard that Matt Brooks had discovered and established a 22 meter roof climb nestled amongst suburban Sydney. Whaaaat? How could that have not been discovered before??? So I went and checked it out and sure enough it’s that big and the climbing is great! Who’d have thunk it! Nice work Matt! The climb is called Ghetto Superstar (28) at The Hideaway — and the climber pictured here is Sean Powell. You probably saw it here first, unless of course you’ve already seen it in my new book #RockClimbingDownUnder

The Outsider

By | Instagrams | No Comments

There is so much more to #bouldering in the #Grampians than Hollow Mountain Cave and @davekellermann knows that as well as anyone. Over the years Dave has made first ascents of hundreds of new boulder problems all over the Grampian and especially down in the south. Many are classics, some as hard as v13. This one is The Outsider (v11) near Mt Fox from last year when Dave did the first ascent. See #RockClimbingDownUnder

Notes From the Underground

By | Instagrams | No Comments

On my first trip to the USA, back in 2000 on assignment for @rockandicemag , I visited #Yosemite and made this image of Cedar Wright on Notes From the Underground. In the background you can see why the Dawn Wall of El Capitan gets it’s name. Massive congratulations to @tommycaldwell and @kjorgeson for just now making the first free ascent of the #dawnwall, the culmination so many attempts and so much hard work over six years; with a final push of 19 days on the wall, with pitches up to grade 14.d (35). World’s hardest “big wall”. The media coverage (frenzy?) on this has been really interesting to me; I’ve never seen anything in rock climbing go so far beyond just the climbing media. I just now watched the live video feed of Tommy and Kevin completing the last few pitches — with the video feed courtesy of mainstream media. Gotta say, it was very cool seeing history being made! So #psyched for these guys. So very inspiring to us all in so many ways! #dreambig #climbing #rockclimbing
