Grampians Trip Rap Up

OK well This 3 week trip to the Grampians was one of the best yet. My goal for this trip was to climb Sleepy Rave v15 which I managed to climb in the first week, so that was really good. The next goal was to try and climb the wheel of life v16. I tried to climb this long problem for the remainder of my trip. I came very very close to climbing the wheel but was unsuccessful this time. I fell at the very end 12 times from the start, so i hope to go back there soon and climb it but we will see.

Problems I did this trip were Seepy Rave V15. Under Siege V13. Killer Dwarf V11 (FLASH) and Green Destiny V9.

On our way home from the Grampians we stopped in at Canberra for a boulder competition. The comp had really good Prize money and was a good event to finish the trip. I was leading going into the finals and also won the finals although i was not feeling my best on the day i was happy with how I climbed.

Grampians - September 2007

Well i'm in the Gramps and the weather has been great.
I got here and was feeling a little out of shape due to not climbing for a week cause of my injured finger but it has healed well and i can really yank on it again. Yesterday i did a problem called Sleepy Rave 8C which Dai did on his trip out here to the gramps a while back. The problem is a link of Sleepy Hollow into Cave Man into Dead Can't Dance and is almost the whole cave link up which is called The Wheel Of Life 8C+. I just have to link a V8/V9 into the start of it.
So i have one more week left down here in the Gramps to try and climb The Wheel, but there are many other boulders i want to climb so we will see what happens.....stay tuned!!!
