Happy Movember

Well for the next 4 weeks I’m in Arapiles/Grampians on yet another climbing trip. On the boat tonight. Meeting John, Anna and Deano there tomorrow and the Nati fringe festival is on, so party time, excellent 🙂
Claire, Simon, Liz, Oli, Kaely, Lisa, Jeramie, Amanda, Helen + maybe more will be turning up over the next 4 weeks so looking forward to NOT WORKING and spending time with friends on dry warm rock 🙂
I’m living my dream, wouldn’t want to change a thing 🙂 PSYCHED!

Went for a boulder on the weekend, was fun. After much grunting managed to send “Setting Sun” V4
Araps/Gramps in 1.5w can’t wait to get out of Tassie and go somewhere dry. Hopefully John, Anna and Deano will be waiting for me 🙂

Panty Splatter

6 10 2009

Been back in Tassie 3 weeks now not much to report other than it’s wet, very wet but a group of us managed to find some dry (other than it raining on me in my bivy) rock at the Star Factory on the weekend. I managed to send “Antimatter” (Panty Splatter) 25m 23 but only just. The pumppyiest 23 I’ve ever done! Managed to do the traverse just below the roof then had some trouble with my feet (usual story) was about to come off so dynoed for the next big hold (skipping a few moves) and stuck it. Took all my energy to finish off the route and felt like throwing up when i got back down to the ground (don’t think i would have made it if not for everyone on the ground egging me on, was awesome 🙂 Even more impressed was Jeramie on “Balance of Evil” 25m 25 he sent it in style, made it look easy, was great to watch, will be my next project up there.

Still all smiles (even though a few small injuries have been trying to get me down) PSYCHED for Arapiles and Grampians now!

Counting down the days, 24 to go 🙂
