Wheel Of Life

American climber Ethan Pringle has repeated the Wheel of Life in the Grampians. It took him 3 days & he has offered a sport grade of 9a, rather than the font 8c+ (V16).

As an overseas climber (from the UK) I am shocked at how few boulderers are out in the Gramps. I would also rate it as one of the best areas I have had the pleasure to boulder at.

Fantastic effort! And solid validation of Chris Webb-Parson's efforts.

I don't know, V16, 9a, 5.14d - all sounds bloody hard to me.

Too right. I think some people get a bit caught up with weather it's a boulder problem or route either way it's fantastic line in an inspirational cave!

In the same way I find myself wondering whether or not the weather has anything to do with a problem in a cave.
