Life at the Pines - Mt Arapiles

The climbing Mecca of Australia - Mt Arapilies. We have been staying at the campsite (known as the Pines) below the cliffs on and off for the last 3 weeks (with time out the the Gt. Ocean Rd.).

A similar photo was on my calinder before we left the UK. 'Kachoong' 21

Above and below: 'A taste of Honey' 21. I almost lost it on the footless move right after the bottom shot but just made the crux to the ledge.

Stumpy - strange beasts that like to hide under your tent. At about the size of a house brick they could make a pillow.
