Last day, best day! Surfing out the finishing scoop for a 1-day first ascent of The Lonely Crowd (V14)! One of those moments when everything just clicks and a hell of a way to finish off a great trip! It was a very successful trip for me and this incredible finger-strength boulder was just one out of many great first ascents. Stay tuned for all the videos! Now onto the next one! #bouldering #rockclimbing

Another little insta-banger! Flashed this incredible finger-strength testpiece called Desperate Measures (V12) a couple days ago! The rock here in the Grampians is truly something else! Thanks for the beta and video Oliver! #bouldering #island @lasportivagram @blackdiamondequipment

Last go, best go! First ascent of Road Sweet Home (V15) just as it’s getting too dark to see! This grainy picture doesn’t do justice to this beautiful boulder, but it’s a striking line that caught my straight away. Flawless orange sandstone and just enough features on the rock to make it feasible. I found and cleaned it back in 2012, but since we never managed to do all the moves, it was slowly forgotten about. Until this year!! Stay tuned for the send footage!

Managed to send one of our old projects from a couple seasons ago! The World Is Not Flat (V14)! The most bullet sandstone you’ll ever see and this line climbs like a dream on holds that seem like they were perfectly sculpted for climbing! What a 5-star line! Buandik keeps on giving with new classic boulders going down every day in right in the main area! #bouldering #rockclimbing

Another day, another awesome new boulder problem! First ascent of Jackson Pollock (V11) in the Grampians! Can’t get over how nice the rock in Buandik is!

One of my most memorable moments this year; First ascent of Good Hope (V13) in Rocklands! Hands down one of the best boulder problems I’ve ever climbed! It is so very rare to find a gem like this where everything comes together for a flawless boulder problem! It’s moments like this that make all the effort that we put into exploring worth it!
