Well, I've managed to completely avoid posting anything, but living in the pancake of Western Australia there ain't a whole lot of climbing to be done!!!

That said I did head down to Mount Frankland, WA for a weekend with CAWA. Had an excellent time climbing the granite slabs of the granite dome with a german guy called Fabian, and a French guy called Tony.

A few pics follow...

Me leading Three Card Trick (** 18). Five bolts in 45m of climbing!!!

Into the light...

Leading the Pass classic Cenotaph Corner (*** E1 5c), back in May 2005.

The belayer is John Thompson.

Extremely pleased with myself when I got to the top of this.

A rather soft touch gritstone slab at the pleasent and quiet far end of Stanage.

Not much gear on this climb, so not one to slip off, but its at a nice angle so there's not much chance in that.

Up and running....

Well I thought I'd start blogging some of the pics I take whilst climbing. They all get posted to my Flickr Stream, but I'm pretty bored at work and thought I'd post them here as well.

I might even bother to write something about the climbs as well, you never know.
