yay! That's great news, I'm so very excited Simon, thank you. What an awesome unexpected christmas present! I enjoyed reading all the other stories too. Will send you a PM. Such an awesome addition to any climber's library, and especially showcasing Aussie talent.
Happy New Year everyone!
Thanks to everyone who came to the Melbourne show, it was a great night! And many thanks to Andy Dinning and the VCC for helping organise and supporting the event. Awesome!
The competition prizes were sent out before Christmas except for daviesdan -- I still need your address mate.

>quick question - climbing at Tsaranoro, was it more smearing or edging?
Hmmm, generally granite slabbing I guess but maybe more featured than some -- it varied from route to route. Cas Nullard had a fair bit of pure slabbing but was mostly fairly easy. Swiss Guides Routes was mostly face climbing on edges... A whole lot of Buffalo mileage would be well worth it. Our tips and feet were screaming after 9 pitches up Out of Africa; it had some climbing reminiscent of Redbacks at Buffalo... would you call that smearing or edging?

>Where can we find more information about climbing in Madagascar?
Just Tsaranoro or the islands as well? Monique wrote an article about our trip was published in Crux #5 (sold out) and also in Rock and Ice. You can drool over the Tsaranoro topos here: http://www.campcatta.com/topo2.php And some info on Nosy Hara Archipelago here: http://www.newsearoc.com/rubrique_2_4_0.html
The climbing at the islands was not especially extensive but fun and it remains the most memorable trip I've ever done. Tsaranoro was mind-blowing, the southern hemisphere's answer to Yosemite but in a style I prefer, I'd love to get back there one day when I'm climbing well... just shoot if you have any other questions.
Oh, and for anyone who missed the Sydney show, I'm doing another show in Sydney in two weeks time...
... it's on Thursday January 19th, at the new Patagonia shop in the city (93 Bathurst Street, near Kent Street), starting 7.30pm. Free.
Just a reminder for anyone in Sydney who might be intersted, I'm presenting my show in the city tonight. Actual show starts at 7.30pm so come a bit before then for a yarn or to grab a seat (or a book?) if you can. Cheers!
