I was standing on the platform at Melbourne Central and thought I heard Sharma screaming... Sure enough they were playing the trailer for King Lines on the new video screens.

"Professional abseiler"? Man. I wonder if James had any chance to review before it went to print.

That is fricking hilarious. Is he considering a new and lucrative career as a professional monkey escape artist?

Also: maybe not strictly climbing but still a fine drop of red to take for a weekend up in the blueys. Ringbolt Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Many a year back they tried that in a US zoo (cant remember which one)...ie had climbers test to see if enclosure escape proof.....they modified the walls until the climbers couldn't get out anymore and it was proclaimed escape proof...end result...Gorilla escaped in the first couple of weeks

Didn't Mark Baker have a similar gig at Taroonga a few years ago?

Yeah, my girlfriend was watching it at the gym, and she came home telling me all about 5.15's and how this 'hippy Sharma guy' made it look easy, and I need to get bigger muscles...

...great.

Trivially easy to get out there. What were the enclosure builders thinking?

Perhaps tenuously relevant...

Does PETMAN wear 5.10 Coyotes?

Little Joe at Boston Zoo.
The gorilla exhibits are surrounded by moats and artificial rock walls. Before use a local climbing club was invited in: each climber was given a can of spray paint to mark any hand or toehold that they found. After a weekend of climbing, possible escape routes were identified. The builders of the artificial rock walls filed down and filled in all the the identified holds.
No gorilla escaped until 14 years later (August 2003). The zoo put in more security after Joe’s first escape but Joe got out again two months later.

I never realised how hard a 28 could be. Clearly (s)he's a good climber, (s)he makes it look like more of a scramble than a real limit-pusher...

Check out the snow capped peaks in Nowra and the dawn light in the Bungles, not to mention the fact that Frog has got a while lot taller (along with Geoff Little) and that Frenchmans Cap is seeing a rapid encroachment of agriculture and is now made of gritstone.
