News – Australian Climbing Survey: Winners are Grinners

The Australian Climbing Survey finished up last week. On behalf of ourselves and our partners – the Australian Climbing Festival and the Blue Mountains Climbing School – we’d like to thank everyone who filled out the survey. It was not a short survey, so we appreciate your time and patience. Combined with the results of the survey conducted at the Australian Climbing Festival, more than 1200 climbers Australia-wide have completed the Australian Climbing Survey, easily making it the largest survey ever completed on Australian climbing.

We’re very excited to announce that the winner of the Black Diamond and Sea to Summit gear is Andrew Lim from Sydney. We hope Andrew climbs a load of fine routes with the cams and ‘draws, and enjoys many fine meals and good nights’ sleep camping out with his pot and mat.

The Blue Mountains Climbing School also provided a great prize: a weekend Indoor to Outdoor climbing instruction package worth RRP $880. Gilbert Gaddi from Sydney was the winner of the BMCS course – as well the new book from Petzl, From the Deep: the Petzl Adventure – we hope Gilbert gets as much pleasure from getting out to the crags as we do.

Finally, we had a bunch of Australian Climbing Festival and Vertical Life t-shirts to giveaway – Jay Hedges, Scott Boladeras, Chris Somerville, Trevor Raiss, Peter Johnstone, Craig West, Hahn Le, Scott Hailstone and Luke Wojtech were all winners.

Once again, thanks to everyone who took part and to all our partners and sponsors.
Team VL, Simon & Ross
