Only the other night I watched ‘Smitten’ (in which Jarmila tries Punks). Jarmila says she will do ANYTHING to (tick) Punks. Evidently, from Simon Carter's site, this would even include moving to Victoria!

I am not normally a fan of blogs, facebook etc, but I found Mayan's blog insightful into the driven, twisted world of hard red-pointing.

I believe Mayan is from NZ and has done plenty of bouldering at Castle Hill, so I can see that the required focus on friction and body-position from that would certainly help on the bulging, blank and technical bits of Punks.

Really great effort.
Some trivia:
India, first 29 in Aust, FA 1982. First female ascent 1986 (Christine Gambert (France). She then spent the rest of the trip belaying her husband on it. He didn't get it.).
Punks, first 32 in Aust, FA 1985. First female ascent 2012.

* I know India is now considered 28, but it was 29 at these times. (edited to change Punks to India, haven't bothered to learn how to do strikethrough)

And now you're downgrading Punks to a mere 28 just because a woman's done it, geez Kieran ;)
