Mt Alexander  Push For The Summit

Chockstone Gathering Highlights * Gathering Highlights (5.5 Meg, 1 minute)
An amalgamation of several routes from the Chockstone Gathering day at Dog Rocks, Mt Alexander. Includes Neil on the full body workout splitter jam crack Bravetheart (18), Neil again stemming Jack Russel (22) the corner crack, Alistair making a near clean onsight of the test piece Scottish Resign (24), Neil once more, getting spat off Mo Money (25), and some bouldering action, including a glimpse of Julian on the FA of a new problem. Audio included! Video by Michael Boniwell.
Julian Saunders Bouldering * Julian Saunders (6 Meg, 1.1 minutes)
The FA of a new, high ball boulder problem at Dog Rocks, Mt Alexander is boldly ascended by Julian Saunders, despite moss, loose granite flakes, and no chalk bag. A nice dyno guards the opening moves, then it's sketchy pseudo-mantling on a mossy slab scoop before topping out gecko style. Audio included! Video by Michael Boniwell.
Kent FFA Attemp (Click To Play Video) Scorpion Rocks Project (3.4 Meg, 55 seconds)
Kent on a FFA attempt at Scorpion Rocks. There's actually two separate attempts merged, hence the plethora of camera angles and discontinuity with the helmet. Video by Michael Boniwell.
Inquisition Video Clip Inquisition (2.7 Meg, 43 seconds)
Michael leading Inquisition, a 15m grade 14 at Wabbit Wocks, Mt Alexander. A short, easy lead, but very enjoyable. Definitely recommended for climbers new to the area. Video By Brett T.
Hendo's ArÍte (2.5 Meg, 40 seconds)
Michael top roping Hendo's ArÍte a 15m, grade 21 at Wabbit Wocks, Mt Alexander. The crux is the first couple of moves. Actually that image on the left is Ben, but whatever.

Joe on Green Alliance (25), Camel's Hump. * Green Alliance (3.2 Meg, 52 seconds)
Joe Morgan-Player takes on the mighty Green Alliance (25) at Camel's Hump, Mt Macedon. A fall from bolt three heightens the drama before he puts the moves together arriving just shy of the chains. Next time Joe! Footage uses two angles and some close ups. Video by Michael Boniwell.
Bloodline (3 Meg, 49 seconds)
Owen leads the grade 22 sport climb "Bloodline" out at Camels Hump. Hard for the grade, the crux is low on the route, before the terrain becomes juggy towards the top out. Footage shot mostly from above.

[ No Image ] "Scratch And Sniff", 22m Grade 20 - Video Clip Scratch and Sniff (3 Meg, 49 seconds)
Michael leading "Scratch and Sniff", a 22m grade 20 sport climb out at Black Hill. Just nice slabbing, nothing dramatic, though it should give an idea of the granite climbing available here. Video By ? (Can't remember).

Ben Nevis, Mt Cole  Push For The Summit
Big Ben (1.7 meg, 27 seconds)
Michael leading "Big Ben" 110m grade 18 at the North Cliff, Ben Nevis. The climbing follows an atheistic step-like fault line. We had to bail off the route shortly thereafter due to gale force winds! Video By Brett T.
