Going for a snorkel at the beach we were camping at after a days tramping. The water was a lot colder than it looks though...
The bay in which we camped
Jacs on a typical section of the track. Very similar to NZ in parts
Out of the forest and onto the beach. Magic.
Have a great christmas everyone.

Scouting a stacked section on the Middle Llancahue. The really long rapid ends in a difficult 60 foot waterfall. It has all been done once apparently. Staunch!
The flies were pretty bad, you just had to put up with them or else you would actually go insane!
We went through a petrified forest!
And then we hiked some more...
After hiking we went back to the river and attempted to build a raft, but ended up swimming and pushing it along. We then finished the journey with a tour through one of the local caves, I wish I had taken my camera because it would have made for some awesome photos!
Anyways we have big plans to head to Tassie on Boxing day so we will keep you posted, I hope all is well and wish you all the best for Christmas and New Years -Hope santa spoils you!

After some well earned beers on Saturday night we were back into it at a different location on Sunday. Here we did some more trad' routes as well as some bolted routes. Another excellent day which finished just as the thunderstorms arrived. Couldn't have planned it better.
There you have it. Until next time

The sunny Hurunui came along, flew us gently, whirled us in its warm water and gave us a bright new smile back. Me and Andie Kennedy (mo) took Greg Seaton down along with his girlfriend and charming Lucy.
Greg, who we picked up after a hard night drinking Wodka (with a W for Whip-your- ass) was fine as long as he was still drunk ...Later on his great entertainer side took over and he decided to show us some solid intestin-backflipping skill. Here, in-between too gaging spasms. This is probably the real purpose of the wetsuit afterall.
The next day at Cattle stop, the weather is with us. Tina and Greg take me this time, lead climbing, because its good for me. Here Tina featuring on what could be used to promote climbing in the Port Hills overseas.

Tits out for the pretty shelter at the top of the Mountain
The Great Dividing Range
Jacs makes a new friend
And I do too
A magic gorge where there is plenty of potential for rock climbing and a launching ramp for hang-gliders
A random shot - Jacs struts her stuff at the local bouldering wall in Melbourne. A free wall thats been set up under the freeway.
