watch it or you'll get your sorry ass deported adam, you're treading on thin ice as it is mate ;)
when the hell are we gonna get out for a crank?


actually if you are looking for a rock change, especially if you are a surfer, i would say that the nearby central coast is a very good option- great surf without the crowds of sydney, massive amounts of AMAZING climbing on the hawkesbury & surrounds, not far from the hunter valley (awesome cragging) and only 1 1/2ish hours to the blueys

Well, maybe when the busiest climber/boulderer/surfer/skater/photographer/snowboarder/walking injury and birthday boy in the known universe can pencil me in, we can go for a crank.

So, I was prowling around rockclimbing.com, looking at the top rated photos and I came across this shot of some muscle bound, young turk cranking out some chossy cave in Annangrove.

I thought to myself, "This bloke looks Familiar. Holy shit! It's Mousey with mumps!"

But the thing that really impressed me was the description of the rest of the rock in the area.

"this is just the 'mucking around & wet weather cave' part of the crag, the rest is like grampians rock with squamish-esque aretes... uberclassic"

Ha ha ha ha ha ha

"grampians rock", "squamish-esque aretes" You've got to be joking!

"uberclassic" Pull the other one!

What happened when you let go of your left hand, Josh?

well i know thats a pretty big claim, but its pretty awesome... got a couple ultra strong lads coming out with us to hit up the dreamtheater project & ill get some photos for you to show how good it is.
btw, when i let go with my left hand i had matched on the toe hook which gave me a scary swing and i came off upside down. the shot after though i just cranked on the one toe & used the hanging leg to kill swing, allowing me to dynamically cross through to a jug with my left hand.

You keeping local discoverys secret Josh??..anything high enough to sink steel into?

rod you're more than welcome to come down!!
there probably is a couple 'boltable' lines but we're keeping it steel free... a few of them have been done as highball problems already, but there's plenty of trees to toprope from.if you want to do em on a rope.

anyways, wombat here's a sequence;
one two three four five six seven
its actually not that hard, all the holds (except 1) are pretty much jugs- the crux is just catching the dyno without feet, then controlling the swing as you move to the jug where my toe is. unfortunately i dont have a shot of the last move but i might just nab one next time we're there for ya mate ;)
for the record i dont ever pose climbing photos, whether of me or by me

"grampians rock" leaves the field pretty well wide open. Maybe it's like G-land.

That's the shot I want to see.

By the way, thats a nice sequence. I saved them and viewed them all together. Looks excellent.

I've watched that 'Border Security' show, mate. They are pretty tough on 'undesirables'. Did they give you a hard time?
