I took this shot while resting from bouldering at Salmon Beach on the Southern Yorke Peninsula... one of the most beautiful places to just chill out.

The view

Average Rating = 4.00/5 The view

I love Tasmania, and this view shows exactly why... what a sight to rise to in the morning - even if it was at 5.30 am.

Adam gets the whole downclimbing thing a bit wrong.

Average Rating = 3.62/5 Adam gets the whole downclimbing thing a bit wrong.

Heh heh, no tricks, just as it looks, on the way back down I inverted and my son took this shot. It's a little grainy because he had set the camera to 400 speed but, it looks ok.

Me onsighting Kachoong, Yay!

Average Rating = 4.75/5 Me onsighting Kachoong, Yay!

I had been wanting to climb Kachoong for five years, but never got up the courage. Well I finally sucked it up and after waiting for my photographer to get set headed up... what an awesome climb! Do it if you get the chance, it's great fun! :)

ajkclay's Home Gym

Average Rating = 0.00/5 ajkclay's Home Gym

It's a crap merged pic, but I wasn't going to spend more than a couple of minutes on it. Traverse wall, adjustable angle wall (with attachable hinged bottom wall - not shown) Campus board, punching bag and home weights gym. Metolius simulator hangboard can just be seen on the beam above the smiley face hold.

ajkclay making the connection - Extra G Connection

Average Rating = 4.00/5 ajkclay making the connection - Extra G Connection

This route tests would-be leaders in a few different ways; first there's a technical and strenuous crux, immediately followed by a tricky traverse. From then on it just becomes overhung and pumpy! You're left pondering whether to place gear or conserve energy and run it out.

Tom, onsighting Golgotha on a nice warm morning

Average Rating = 3.65/5 Tom, onsighting Golgotha on a nice warm morning

A little run out to start with, this route is serious even though it weighs in at only grade 16, Tom did well to onsight it and keep his trousers clean :)

Tom Cree Deep Water Soloing on Backslapper.

Average Rating = 2.83/5 Tom Cree Deep Water Soloing on Backslapper.

Tom about to top out on his notorious route Backslapper, the route which he named shortly after he had one from the 10m mark! Heh heh.

Not a bad way to finish off the year, Tom about to tackle the crux during our trip to Backslapper Wall in the holidays just after Christmas.

Average Rating = 3.43/5 Jason Deep Water Soloing for the first time.

This was my son Jason's (11 yrs old) time DWSing. Here he is at the top of Backslapper 10m (30ft) above the water and cool as a cucumber.

Quang - now suspicious of a sandbag on Moondance

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Quang - now suspicious of a sandbag on Moondance

By this stage he was well and truly aware of the fact that perhaps a sandbag had taken place. If the fact that he was being photographed and video-taped didn't do it, the sniggers and squeals of delight at each move certainly gave the game away!

Quang negotiates the first Moondance traverse.

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Quang negotiates the first Moondance traverse.

From undercling to a sidepull, Quang, not yet aware of the fact that he is being sandbagged, makes a nice looking span to negotiate the first of two airy traverses on Moondance, a great route at Moonarie South Australia.

Adam bit run out on Moondance

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Adam bit run out on Moondance

Even though it's not from the formula angle for a good shot, I like the angle here, I think it gives an interesting perspective. Photo by Alex Wright, reproduced with permission.

Tom cuts loose on Pilot Error

Average Rating = 3.25/5 Tom cuts loose on Pilot Error

Tom wanted to give Pilot Error a go, so we headed up, and it was great! Tom found out what was meant by the term "climb it like a girl." Heh heh, sometimes height just isn't enough eh Gump?

Finally happy on Moondance

Average Rating = 3.39/5 Finally happy on Moondance

It wasn't until about this point that I was happy that I had not been the victim of another Moonarie sandbag. This great route is a beauty for the grade, one of my favourites of all time.

Cool Angle. Adam on Moondance.

Average Rating = 3.20/5 Cool Angle. Adam on Moondance.

Taken by Quang, I like the angle of this shot. It's from below, but manages to give an interesting perspective I think. Despite being a 15, I rate Moondance as one of my favourite ascents; it's not always about numbers.

Adam working a project in the cave

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Adam working a project in the cave

Adam tries to pull himself out of the water on slippery holds as he works an unfinished project at Backslapper Wall. Picture taken in about 5m of water, the camera was in a water proof case (hence the drops visible)

Stewy not looking at the camera for once!

Average Rating = 2.50/5 Stewy not looking at the camera for once!

Stewy leading Muesli, Boulder Bridge. Taken using AGFA 100asa speed in low light. I had to solo up and then brace on a small ledge for stability.

Megan looking cool as a cucumber on the Muesli Wall

Average Rating = 3.33/5 Megan looking cool as a cucumber on the Muesli Wall

This is a photo I used in a presentation on perceived risk and it's effect on performance. It was taken in very low evening light which I think allowed the texture of the rock to really show.

Adam Clay leading Resurrection

Average Rating = 3.80/5 Adam Clay leading Resurrection

Nice and scary route with no pro until 2 metres after the crux! First placement is in the crack you can see just above me at about 6-7metres above a very rocky base/landing.

Ivor leading Muesli (Boulder Bridge)

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Ivor leading Muesli (Boulder Bridge)

I took this pic of Ivor leading Muesli in low light. Using agfa 100asa film, on a 1/30th shutter speed, and just resting my arms on a ledge halfway up a face (solo), so it's amazing it's not all blurry.

Quang leading Clea Direct

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Quang leading Clea Direct

This is a pic of Quang on his first ascent of Clea Direct. The route is a great lead located at Boulder Bridge, Morialta Gorge, South Australia. A small roof provides an interesting crux at the top that can play with your mind if you don't have just the right piece of pro.

Tom Cree leading Mount Olive

Average Rating = 4.00/5 Tom Cree leading Mount Olive

I took this photo using Tom's camera. The amazing thing is that it was a "point and shoot" camera and the light was really low! It turned out much better than I thought it would, I was really just experimenting with angles.

Ivor testing out a BD .4 cam on 'Gorilla My Deams Direct Start'

Average Rating = 2.25/5 Ivor testing out a BD .4 cam on 'Gorilla My Deams Direct Start'

Ivor wasn't sure if the .4 cam would hold on this route, so he thought the best thing to do would be to fall on it. It did hold, but he tested it again a few minutes later, just to make sure it was really safe, before actually finishing the route. Strictly a sport route, this route has 3 bolts, but the placement of the cam makes dropping from near the top just that little bit less painful.

Quang contemplating his next crimp while enjoying 'The Company of Lovers'

Average Rating = 3.29/5 Quang contemplating his next crimp while enjoying 'The Company of Lovers'

The Company of Lovers is a nice warm up climb graded 19, (5.10b) at the Buttress, Morialta Falls. The start has a nice heel hook move to gain some bigger holds before moving on to crimps.

Quang Doan on Muldoon

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Quang Doan on Muldoon

This is a picture of my climbing friend Quang on a classic route at Arapiles called Muldoon. We climbed this route 2 hours after it stopped raining (it had rained non-stop for the previous 36 hours) so many of the holds were still very wet, or submerged, which made it even more "fun"

Plexas, a scary grade 16 lead.

Average Rating = 3.00/5 Plexas, a scary grade 16 lead.

This is a pic of me on Plexas 16 (18m). The photo was taken last year when I was top roping it, but last night I lead it trad for the first time, and it was scary- no pro until the point I am at in the pic, then heave up over the block and climb another 5m before the next piece. There's no trick with the pic, it's as high as it looks. It seemed harder than 16, but I guess a lack of pro will do that to you.

Adam Clay sequence on Cutloose

Average Rating = 3.75/5 Adam Clay sequence on Cutloose

This series of pictures was taken at the end of a long hot day (37 degrees celcius) of climbing. The route was top roped, as to lead it would have been suicidal in the circumstances. Photos taken by Andy Holmes, reproduced with permission.

Adam Clay on 'Mad Germans By Torchlight'

Average Rating = 0.00/5 Adam Clay on 'Mad Germans By Torchlight'

This is a climb in Adelaide South Australia that we have tentatively called 'Mad Germans By Torchlight' after a visiting German friend mistakenly climbed the wall between the arete of Eternal Damnation and the corner of Lord's Prayer at Far Crag. He climbed it in darkness, so we had to shine torches up to help him see the moves. The climb is not written up anywhere, so we are currently looking for previous ascents, and names. Graded at about 21/22 Ewbank. Photo from Adam Clay's personal collection.
