Wow, takes some guts and stamina to do that.  I guess my sister got into rock climbing and really loves it.  Said that it was challenging.

I've done some not-too-technical free climbing in my younger days, I want to try and convince my younger brother to go up to the Glasshouse Mountains in Queensland and climb Mt Tibrogargan,

there is an ascent up the Western face that doesn't require ropes, the Eastern face is a serious climb that requires a lot of skill, ropes, anchors etc.

The view from up there would be awesome. I circumnavigated the base with another friend some years back, we got up to the initial ascent point for the East face and it was even hairy and scary just looking at it from the lowest level.

I'm sure you'll do just fine, but I will always keep my feet firmly planted on the ground, thank you.

Hehe yeah, it's more of a scramble and a few bits of climbing from the western side :) not sheer faces as from the east :D

Hehe, I love flying, always get a window seat and love the acceleration of takeoff as well, usually sit up the back near the engines on the smaller aircraft, or a little bit around the middle, behind the wings on the big ones when you can pick seats :D

Looks like he is 'boldering' (without a rope). That is a great image and a fine capture.

There were a few people that went up that day, not sure with this one, but there is what sort of looks like a line in place, to the left and going up higher, it's a little easier to see in the fullsized pic. 

Someone also had a decent sized drone buzzing around whilst these guys were climbing.

These drones are a trip. I see them for sale in grocery stores. It's interesting to think that one's cell phone has more computerized power than the first Apollo space craft had. I remember when a telephone weighed like 5 pounds!...ha ha ....and we had a 'party line.'

Yeah, I thought about one of the more advanced DJI ones, but I may end up buying a bigger camera first lol :D and yeah, amuses me no end in regards to how computers and associated devices have advanced over the years. I got my first pc in around 1989 or so, hehe, still remember all its stats and stuff :P I used to build and repair them as well, so yeah lots of progress over the years in regards to internal architecture :)
