Realised I put this in the wrong thread, so here it is in the right one...
[Moderator edit: This is the only thread now. I deleted the other one.]
Sad news for those few who climbed with Tasmanians in the early 70s - Bryan Kennedy died of a heart attack last Saturday while sailing in Moreton Bay near Brisbane. Bryan was a pioneer of harder climbing in Tassie - and climbed Aqualung at Stacks Bluff with Ian lewis - probably the first multi-pitch 21 in Australia - in 1973.
A wake is being held in Hobart on Feb 26 - if anyone who knew Bryan would like to find out more, email me at closs@cix.co.uk.

Sad news. I only met him once either in late 70s or early 80s when someone took us to his house to try to get some route descriptions for Freycinet - must have been 70s I think.

One of those magic moments on the Organ Pipes, and (without getting too mawkish) the idea of Bryan climbing above a rainbow seems kind of appropriate at the moment.

Hazards Main Wall, Sleepy Bay end. Somewhere about Stud City I think.

Another edit:

Having looked at the guide (and bearing in mind the approximate date of the photo) it is most probably the FA of Stud City. But I could be wrong!

Roger that.
I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Bryan, my condolences to all those who did.. he sounds like a properly rad character.

If you're having trouble contacting Lyle about the details of the wake, PM or email me instead.
