A scary-short-story from the archives ...

'...Aiding pitch 5 or 6 of Ozymandias on the north wall of Buffalo and i decided to switch from aid to free mode to try and speed up the process. I was wearing runners not climbing shoes. I laybacked up some sort of expando flake and managed to kick out the wire I had placed at my feet. The previous bit of gear was a good 7m below that and suddenly i relaized that my Nike's don't grip onto granite like 5.10 rubber does! The feeling of being in a tenous layback move five pitches up Ozy in runners facing a 15m+ fall was totally freaky. I started sketching and shaking and seeing no gear nearby I managed to downclimb and whittle a replacment wire in using my feet and slump back onto my daisy chains. I promptly decided I wasn't going to try and free any more of this route and stayed in my aiders for the rest of the day...'


An awesome route howevayadoit ...

Oh my god! Another film night in Nati! Sunday, 22 May 2005 Eduardo:
'...Yes, thatís right folks. Another film night in Nati. This time itís the 15/15 Film Festival 05. A film festival of independent and emerging film makers from around the globe. For more info go to www.filmfestival15.com

It will be on Saturday the 4th of June at the Soldiers Memorial Hall in Main Street Natimuk. So if your up here enjoying the drought, I mean the horrible wet and cold conditions of winter, come along and see the films at 7.00pm. No food this time, but there might be a bar.

They are possibly already too old. There was a young lad (16?) on one of the morning news shows earlier this with his dad, who was planning an expedition to climb the big vertical rubbish dump. (can't find any details so far)

Youngest so far (as at 2003) is a 15 y/old girl http://theadvertiser.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5936,6486770%255E1702,00.html
The previous youngest was also 15 and lost a several fingers through frostbite. I wonder if it's worth it loosing fingers at such a young age!?

Yeah, that'd be 13y.o(2004),Chris Harris :

'...The height of Christopher's ambition seems to know no bounds. His most recent conquest is Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. His ultimate goal is to be the youngest person to climb the seven summits, the tallest mountain on each continent, including the highest in the world, Mt Everest, which he hopes to climb next year. "My ultimate goal is to be the youngest person in the world to climb the highest mountain on each continent. And also to be the youngest person in the world to climb Mt Everest."
So where to next for this intrepid adventurer once he has tackled the tallest of them all?
Out of this world ... to Mars, no less, where the tallest mountain reaches 21 kilometres into the Martian sky. This final frontier is the sort of fantasy challenge Christopher Harris wants to take on some day...'
...................
He still hasn't climbed Everest , so the *Aus* record stands at 21...so Sabu etal are still in with a chance ... but ya better qurank-up ya financing&stair-climbing cos Chrissy might be dodging crevasses at base-camp right now .................... or high-jacking a Russian-rocket at some obscure central-asian-cosmodrome ...
