**** The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler By Steve Toal  1/21/2021
The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler   
Goshen Watts flashing “The Horrible Hunger of the Ravenous Wattle Gobbler” (25), Kitten Wall, Arapiles. See Also: Pic 2.

I like pic 2 better because of the overview presented by it and would give it 5 stars. The shot here is good for getting a bit of an insight into the climb crux and mindset required for it. GW looks quietly determined in his flashing of it! Thanks for refreshing our photo gallery gfdonc. - IdratherbeclimbingM9

Shadow / light contrast is great on the first pic. Although it wasn't a flash - I'd been on the route before, and strained my bicept or something. I did it this time placing gear however, so that's something ;-) - goshen

Nice photo and according to info supplied since, a good send of the route. Good also to see trad climbing still happening. - Chloe

**** Dragon Lady By Steve Toal  6/18/2020
Dragon Lady   
Martin Jackson leading Dragon Lady (18), Burma Wall, Grampians. See Also: Pic 2, Pic 3.

Good choice of the three for presenting as the main pic, because it appears to capture the climbing better with the funky hand moves. - White Trash

Nice bucket! Would be a great setup photo shoot for a climber to leap for it and latch it ala HB style on Taipan Wall! Heh, heh, heh. Good to see some trad climbing representation, even if it is just a memory during these covid restricted times. - IdratherbeclimbingM9

Good photo bro. I like the way the trad gear is swinging with the move just made. Edit. Originally I gave 3 stars for the photo rating but I’ve now changed that to 5 stars based on the fact that I can’t see a bolt on the climb, which is great! Who knows, maybe in a hundred years time this historical photo will epitomise what the 20th century forsook in the style of adventure in climbing? - Duang Daunk

**** Nindja By Steve Toal  11/8/2019
Mei-ying Liew finishing the last moves of Nindja (*15), Peking Face, Eastern Wall Grampians while Michael O'Reilly belays Jill Gara on The Killing Fields (**17). See Also: Photo 2

Great to see a new photo. Thanks gfdonc for submitting it! Good to see trad climbing hasn’t died in the Gramps... Personally I prefer the second (wide aspect) photo and rate it five stars. - IdratherbeclimbingM9

I agree with M9 - second photo way better! - Olbert

I agree with M9's assessment too. - White Trash
