A yacht sails under the setting sun, near the fishing village of Vruje, on Kornati Island, #Croatia. This is a #throwback to a crazy deepwater soloing trip involving speed boats, yachts, miles of unclimbed rock and a bunch of rock stars, many moons ago. #dws #deepwatersoloing #film #nofilter #sunset #yacht #sailing #mynikonlife @nikon_australia @thinktankphoto @julboeyewear #tbt

Root Canalhttp://www.onsight.com.au/2015/07/root-canal/ http://www.onsight.com.au/2015/07/root-canal/#comments Wed, 29 Jul 2015 10:19:31 +0000 http://www.onsight.com.au/?p=5283 John J O'Brien, Root Canal (26), Kalbarri, Western Australia.

Being winter here in Oz I guess #Kalbarri season must be in full swing (given it’s six hours north of Perth and too hot in summer). Not Australia’s biggest climbing areas but it is home to some of the sweetest orange sandstone you’ll find. Here John J O’Brien pulls Root Canal (26) out of the bag – one of the areas best sport routes. And that rope? A 9.8mm Evolution Velocity by @sterlingrope.

Hmmm… I wonder why they call this problem The Birth Canal….? Annie Overling is the climber. It’s grade V something or other, at The Crack House, near Moab, Utah, USA.

@c.ling.alt all nicely run-out whilst modelling a pair of the new #Genius on the last pitch of a mega new route that goes all the way up the South Wall of #Bungonia Gorge.
More about the new route soon, but right now I just want to give a massive shout out to @lasportivagram and @lasportivaaustralia for their simply awesome support these last few years. For all my climbing and approach shoes, I could not be happier. And yep, the new Genius, well, they are just rad! Just try them.
Thanks again La Sportiva! 👊

I Have a Dreamhttp://www.onsight.com.au/2015/07/i-have-a-dream/ http://www.onsight.com.au/2015/07/i-have-a-dream/#comments Tue, 21 Jul 2015 09:05:11 +0000 http://www.onsight.com.au/?p=5249 115 D1212-Edit

Vince Day on I Have a Dream (25) at Pierces Pass in the #BlueMountians. Not shot with a drone; to get this perspective I used my 8m photo pole apparatus.
This photo of course appeared on the cover of the 2010 Blue Mountains guidebook. That book has sold out and I’m getting questions daily about if we are doing a new Blue Mtns guidebook. So yes, we are flat out working on that right now. It will be a entirely new edition: redesigned, updated and expanded. My best guess at this stage is that it will be available around about November. I’ll be doing a “call for info” in the coming days.
