Ahhh no Mark, it's mid 13's, a little beyond me. Will is a local though, and we have all climbed with him, funny guy, and looks like a 14 year old with no muscle. I missed out on seeing him do it, he did it a couple of times....
Dave lives two meters from my main climbing partner in Squish, it's a small town.
Nah mark, there is a nice 350m high wall to go aiding on instead nearby called the chief ;). I do live about three mintues from Zombie though...ugly piece of rock I tell ya!
Damo, the season started way early, then it crapped put again, I ended up getting a job in Van and now I'm working in Mexico for this month, but it's supposedly good now. A new guide just came out too with 500 new routes in it, and topos to rival the Mentz/Tempest creations. Psyched! time to get strong....Oh, speaking of Canberra, do you know Nathan Kukathalis (?). Quiet dude, left Oz a few years ago, totally skilled wall climber etc....at Mt Thor now in Baffin? Works for arcterx in Van.

Does he have a blog or any other contact details?

Hey Rod, he is on facebook, I'll let you know when he gets back if he has a blog. He seems to fly under the radar a bit, despite knocking off some top notch ascents. He got a 2nd of one of the maddest aid routes on the chief last year, and also did a ground up 1st ascent, something which hadn't been done out here for a very long time.
Too right Wendy! You have to be a skier out here to last....
