This is me on the trail to the Sicati cave. This is one of the most unique crags that I have ever seen. It looks as if a meteor hit the island leaving a huge hole. This cave is full of sweet looking rock and has some crazy hard man climbs in it. To check out a cool web vid. from Petzl on this cave - click the link below and then click on rock climbing, option. From there select the Roctrip Kalymnos, it's cool!

This is Half Dome, as seen from the slabs approach. Galo and I started the approach at 9am on Saturday and reached the main wall at 12pm. We were happy that we had made it up the death slabs with no rock fall! We then climbed the first three pitches to fix the ropes to give us a head start the next day. Twenty three pitches, over 2000 ft., on beautiful rock!

This ledge is about a foot wide and fifty long. You have to traverse this ledge and at one point it gets really thin and you have to be super slow and delicate. During the thin part, If a fly were to land on your head you would take a whipper. This got the old ticker going, talk about exposure!

This is a photo of me, at my new hobby of bee keeping! It took me a few times to get comfortable with handling these bad boys. The second time down to my five hives I got swarmed, by one of the not so friendly hives. The bees can sense fear and will come after you, that and they did not like my Old Spice! Oh, and in case your wondering, I do go out dancing in this suit.

This is a photo of me on the Nevis, my second out of three jumps....called the "Thrillogy". My first jump was quite a wake up call in the morning, because I was dunked into the icy cold river. But the Nevis was the one that took the cake, being 440ft.... a nice 8.5 seconds of free falling! What a RUSH!

This is a shot of me on a climb called 10-80! I know, I know..I am a show off but how often do you get to pull a no-hands rest on a roof. What a great climb with an amazing view of the country side. I was in Paynes for about a week, which is at the northern most point of the south island. I stayed at the Hang Dog campground where I met some really cool people to climb with!
