I'm stoked that I got to do the Skyline Traverse around Yulladinida Crater at Mt. Kaputar. It may be only a grade 3 but it is 1800 metres of pure rock ridge traversing. It was an awesome outing and one I would recommend any climber jump on and tick. Some quite spicy moments on it too, the views are smply breathtaking and the geology of a volcano is laid bare as one makes ones way around it. So much ptotential for new routes all the way around it too. Just gobsmacked at how awesome it is.

The rest of the climbing weekend was on The Governor and Lindsay Rock Tops. Had a look at Sawn Rocks and Macintyre Gorge on the way home too.

Totally stoked that Steve and I have found an unclimbed (? I doubt it, but I'm not going to dig) 60m hand crack in the Grose to throw ourselves at.

Bummed that we'll have to bolt it to declare it a project...

Thanks for the idea Mikl, although chances are you probably climbed it in the 80's or so.

We've decided that the most important thing for us is to 'think' it's a new route. Not to worry if it has actually climbed before, I don't think that diminishes the personal excitement. The same can be achieved I suppose by showing up at a crag without a guide, but the position of this is just sensational.

So, like did you just take out the bride and groom, or did you wipe out the lot of them?

I'v done a lot of climbs which were great day's out, adventures, explorations, that I proabaly would think were crap if they were in a guide and I repeated them. Sometimes I don't bother writing them up. by lack of plannign you can always have a grwat adventure

stoked on finally setting myself up with a decent computer system- mac pro w/two 2.8Ghz quad core, 8gigs memory & a tidy little storage/backup rig, 2 screen setup, the whole shebang

not so stoked on the frightening price tag, but uber stoked on the massively reliable & efficient workflow it will support!

not a write off, only get to depreciate
anyway its worth the money (almost twice what my car cost! ha) cus it enables me to deliver clients a much better service so im confident it will pay for itself many times over
