Meg, 3 mins OR
5.1 Meg, 3 mins)
Jacqui Middleton leading The Invisible Fist of
Professor Hiddich Smiddich (26) at the jewel of the Grampians, Taipan
Wall. The scary traverse out right and back left to tag the finish is
well above the last bolt. Video shot from two angles, including above and behind via an
overhanging abseil. Video by Michael Boniwell. Superb editing by Neil
Tannin (5.8 Meg, 1 min 34
Two (5.1 Meg, 1 min 22 seconds)
leading the three star classic of the grade, Tannin (19) on the Organ
Pipes at Mt Arapiles. Normally a pumpy route, Owen cruises it in good
style. Part One takes us to the crux mini-roof, and Part Two completes
the line running it out to the top. Shot from an adjacent pinnacle. Video by
King Rat (4.3 Meg, 1 min 10 seconds)
leading the short but steep, multi starred King Rat (18) deep in the well
shaded King Rat Gully at Mt Arapiles. An excellent place to avoid the
heat of summer. Using the handy ring bolts above, one can also TR the
even steeper Glory Rodent (22) nearby. Shot from the ground. Video by

Hanh leading the consumer classic Sluts Have No

(3.2 Meg, 52 seconds)
Joe Morgan-Player takes on the mighty Green Alliance
(25) at Camel's Hump, Mt Macedon. A fall from bolt three heightens the
drama before he puts the moves together arriving just shy of the
chains. Next time Joe! Footage uses two angles and some close ups.

(4.5 Meg, 1 min 13 seconds)
Owen leading Beowulf (18), South side of The Gorge,
Mt Buffalo. This delightful tips only layback is awesome trad
climbing. With a bomber rest mid-way and good gear it's a short route,
well recommended. Footage shot from above. Video by Michael Boniwell.
(4 Meg, 1 min 5 seconds)
Owen leading Peroxide Blonde (20), The Horn, Mt
Buffalo. Thin slabbing along a sharp arÍte, that drops away on the
left leaving the climber slide pulling with delicate smears. Bolted
all the way and with an amazing backdrop, this is one of the mounts
more popular short routes. Video by Michael Boniwell.
This Is Not Our Land
Michael leading This Is Not Our Land (19), Dreamworld,
Horn Area, Mt Buffalo. Glorious jug hauling bar two small cruxes, the
last and hardest just shy of the top out, this is one well bolted
short, but sweet climb. Video by Owen

and a brief look at Ben Lomond.

hiking and other such activities.

older photos from my pre-climbing days, when hiking ruled my dreams.
