Rock Odyssey: Simon Carter's new book & slide show 5-Jan-2012 At 7:16:51 PM onsight
Happy New Year everyone!

Thanks to everyone who came to the Melbourne show, it was a great night! And many thanks to Andy Dinning and the VCC for helping organise and supporting the event. Awesome!

The competition prizes were sent out before Christmas except for daviesdan -- I still need your address mate.

>quick question - climbing at Tsaranoro, was it more smearing or edging?
Hmmm, generally granite slabbing I guess but maybe more featured than some -- it varied from route to route. Cas Nullard had a fair bit of pure slabbing but was mostly fairly easy. Swiss Guides Routes was mostly face climbing on edges... A whole lot of Buffalo mileage would be well worth it. Our tips and feet were screaming after 9 pitches up Out of Africa; it had some climbing reminiscent of Redbacks at Buffalo... would you call that smearing or edging?

>Where can we find more information about climbing in Madagascar?
Just Tsaranoro or the islands as well? Monique wrote an article about our trip was published in Crux #5 (sold out) and also in Rock and Ice. You can drool over the Tsaranoro topos here: And some info on Nosy Hara Archipelago here:
The climbing at the islands was not especially extensive but fun and it remains the most memorable trip I've ever done. Tsaranoro was mind-blowing, the southern hemisphere's answer to Yosemite but in a style I prefer, I'd love to get back there one day when I'm climbing well... just shoot if you have any other questions.

Cheers, Simon
