A little cropped local color from Simon Carter's luscious Rock Climbing in Australia, 1998. Venus Kondos on the ultra-classic Kachoong (21).

I was there in Oct. two years ago. The flies were HORRENDOUS although they do disappear after sunset.

I was thinking, "Man, am I ever old, cuz I had that issue of Mountain Mag about the time I started climbing." And then all you old farts chime in. Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!!

Ah yes, Procul Harem. I can't for the life of me remember the name of their hit song - someone help me out here, eh?

Thanks for the scans, Steve. Make 'em a bit bigger next time please, on account of my eyes hurt.

Just got my new Araps guide. Its really quite the piece. Suppose to be a “selected” routes guide. But it still has over 1200 climbs listed in it.

And the photos of the rocks are like something you’d see on High Def TV. Never seen a better effort photo wise.

Captions and descriptions are pretty funny too.

Some of you folks who may be traveling there someday soon may wish to check it out here. New Arapiles Guide Book

Procol Harum - A Whiter Shade of Pale (1967). The band was named for the cat of a member's friend. A later hit was Conquistador (1972). The beginning of prog-rock.

I haven't been to Australia, but it's nice to read about it, and hear stories. Thanks!

Anybody out there tangled with this offwidth roof badboy?!? Australia's first grade 24 and looks every bit of it! Nic Taylor climbing Country Road at Mt. Buffalo Gorge. A rappel is necessary to reach the start of this route. Alan Wilson photo.
