Matt Eaton getting all scrunched up in his route called A Kneebar Too Far 15 metre Oz grade 29. He is only a smidge away from ticking the FFA on this project.

Every day he trots up the hill to the huge cave on the front face of Mt. Coolum on Queenslands Sunshine coast and he puts in 3 laps working it. Luckily he lives only two minutes away from the cliff.

Lee Cujes on The Simon Vos Memorial 18m 27.

Average Rating = 4.43/5 Lee Cujes on The Simon Vos Memorial 18m 27.

Lee Cujes ticking his well hard project which has now received the very apt name, The Simon Vos Memorial. Simon Vos died in a tragic canoeing accident on the Severn River in northern New South Wales last Saturday and the same day Lee ticked this route. Simon had bright red hair and this route goes right up through the bright orange to red rock in an otherwise ocean of black foreboding rock. Very apt indeed that the brightest section of rock now stands as a beacon to Simon who will be sorely missed.
