10 year old Angie Scarth-Johnson has posted (on Facebook) a correction to her news from last week. Apparently Angie has learnt that the route she climbed last week was not “Welcome to Tijuana” (8c or 33) but a variant which uses some different holds called “Tijuan” and is graded 8b+ or 32. It can’t be a massive variant it still used the same bolts; apparently there is talk of bolting this variant to avoid future confusion. Thanks @angiescarthjohnson for the clarification. Regardless, it is still an absolutely awesome achievement! Massive props to you all round!

In this pic: Angie is on Wrong Movements (27), Centennial Glen, #BlueMountains.

Be careful out there this weekend… you never know when you might catch a live one!

Steve Monks baited up Fascist and Me by Mike Week’s tender toes… The route is a two pitch E3, 5C at #Pembroke, Wales, UK.

Sunrise finds Nadine Rousselot and Mathieu Geoffray an hours hike in and two pitches up Arête de Marseille (5c). It is a five pitch Calanque’s classic first climbed in 1927, on La Grande Candelle, overlooking the Mediterranean, France.

Angie sends 33!!! (updated)http://www.onsight.com.au/2015/04/angie-sends-33/ http://www.onsight.com.au/2015/04/angie-sends-33/#comments Tue, 21 Apr 2015 11:25:15 +0000 http://www.onsight.com.au/?p=4841

Really psyched to hear this news! Again, massive congrats to @angiescarthjohnson for sending her first grade 8c (33) route with “Welcome to Tijuana”, a bouldery 12m route at Rodellar in Spain. And at age 10, that apparently makes her the youngest person to climb this hard! Wowsa!

This photos is not of that route; I took this photo 16 months ago, in Angie’s home area of the #bluemountains, soon after she climbed her first 31. Read the interview we did with her then at

Vince Day on Wild Wild West (23) at Hanging Rock over looking the Grose Valley, Blue Mountains. Totally out there but it’s a rarely repeated route; access is involved. Fun times rigging the ropes to get this perspective (see the set up in the Nikon BTS vid on my web site). #climbing #rockclimbing #rockclimbingdownunder #bluemountains @sterlingrope #julbo @lasportivagram #nikon @nikon_australia @thinktankphoto

Phew, that was some work! Very stoked have our new 304 page guidebook to some of the best stone on planet Earth finally at the printers. Big shout out to @nmonteith for all his work on this again — authoring the text and much else — bloody brilliant! #Grampians #Climbing, 2015 Edition, will be out in June. In this pic Malcolm Matheson runs it out on his Redline (28), at The Lost World.

Mr Pinkhttp://www.onsight.com.au/2015/04/mr-pink/ http://www.onsight.com.au/2015/04/mr-pink/#comments Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:21:52 +0000 http://www.onsight.com.au/?p=4812

“I’ve got you!” says he with the #rope in one hand and #iphone in the other. (And who says men can’t multi-task?) @moniqueforestier on, errr off, Mr Line (32). Lovely day to be at Diamond Falls today. @wizfineron crushed Mr Carpet Burn (31/32) after his send of Mr Line yesterday. And @alexandermegos continued his demolition job of our hardest routes with the second ascent of Mr Pink (34), which was so tough he even grunted on one move. Then Alex fired off the first ascent of the proj that moves left below the crux of Mr Pink; a little easier, maybe still 34, or 33, name (“Pink Panther”?) to be confirmed.
#goodtimes Massive shout out to @sterlingrope for helping keep us safe all these years!
