Hey guys, just thought i'd introduce myself. im a 24yr old from melton, vic and im a student studying film & television in melbourne. i joined up because i have been climbing for fun over the past year (all indoor, top rope) and im ready to get out there and meet some proper climbers aswell as hopefully be behind the camera, get some great sport shots. ill keep a eye out for future meet ups and if anyone needs a camera jocky, i'd love to help out.

Thanks!

Hello fellow Meltonian.

I climb at Werribee Gorge & Camels Hump fairly often and would be happy to meet up for a play.

I'll pm you my mobile.

Hey Brad!

I'm new on this forum and climbing also. Do you climb in the gyms in Melbourne? If you ever need a partner hit me up.

You are not a latent media tart, as well as shoe collector are you?
Heh, heh, heh.

Not all. I'm sure it's perfectly normal to sleep on a porta-ledge slung from the hills-hoist in the back yard. Completely normal.

Who needs a Hills-hoist when you have Mt Buffalo in your back yard?

There is no way I'd like my fully unco climbing style immortalized on celluloid, or digitally;) On the other hand I have been doing a lot of glute work and must say (I reckon) my 2XU man-tights (strictly for running & posturing) are finally doing me justice. I may even start climbing in them... ;)

I'm still waiting (hoping) for you to run another dark arts initiation course;)

I've heard if you've got it, flaunt it!

Given I lack "it" I console myself with sleeping on the portaledge wherever I can. It's amazing how a little thing like a ledge can turn a simple single pitch into a multi-day adventure;)

It will happen in this coming season, ie after winter, and likely not on any public holiday dates so as not to interfere with peoples family (or free climbing), commitments, my biking trips (☺), etc.

I have had a number of enquiries behind the scenes regarding the dark arts, plus a volunteer or two to help out in sharing their hard won experience...
