Always be Training – Comp Winner

Always be Training, the realness of this mantra keeps it worthy even in a world filled with crappy fitspo Instagram accounts. And the great response to our ABT comp proves that the VL massive are as keen on it as we are. We received some great entires, from people who didn’t want their strong to suffer just because they were on ships at sea, and those who see a tram commute as training op, but for absolute commitment to the cause of…

Competition – Always Be Training

Life is short and the climbs-boulders-mountains are many – how can you possibly be ready for them all? Running a vast media empire like climbing’s version of the evil genius Rupret Murdoch, it’s a question that haunts us more than Honnold’s big brown cow eyes or Jerry Hall’s decision making process. But we have the answer. ABT – Always be Training. Yep, we Always be Training. Going to the dunny? Training. Getting stuff for dinner? Training. Holding a baby? Training….

We acknowledge your need for dacks and that is why we – in conjunction with…

#DMMtryhard – The Winners

If we needed anything to confirm that we are a nation of try hards, then our recent #DMMTryHard competition proved it conclusively. We were flooded with entries from across the land (and indeed from try hards overseas), resulting in a totally hilarious multitude of expressions, from the Invisible Trumpet to the Rat Face and Screaming Banshee, to more esoteric expressions that may signify psychosis or extreme constipation – we saw it all. Such was the volume of entries that we…

DMM Try Hard Competition

Celebrate the release of ISSUE 13 (which you can download here) with our DMM Try Hard comp and win big. Normally no one loves a try-hard. But not us. We love try-hards. After all, isn’t climbing all about trying hard? Every weekend ocker Aussies can be heard shouting ‘Venga, Venga, Venga!’, ‘Allez, Allez, Allez’ or ‘Get a dog up ya, ya mongrel’ at the crag. Some bilingual genii even shout ‘a muerte’, and let’s face it, there’s no trying harder…
