ToposHere are some topos / guides from some of the areas Nalle has been developing in different parts of the world. Some of them are pretty rough drafts, but they should do the job.
Grampians might be my favorite climbing area in the world right now. So far I've spent two seasons there establishing new areas and putting up boulder problems. The quality of rock rock is immaculate in the Grampians; bulletproof sandstone that forms interesting and unique features.
I put up some great new first ascents in the Mt. Stapylton area over the -11 season, most of which are listed as projects in the Grampians Bouldering Guide so these boulders will be updated in the next edition of the book when it comes out. For those who don't want to wait, here is a list of the new FA's in the Northern Grampians. Also in 2012 Nalle got the first ascent of the old Klem Loskot dyno project at Snakepit which he named Quitline (V12). The guidebook suggests that it will be the hardest dyno in Australia when climbed, but already in 2011 Nalle did the first ascent of Pigeon Superstition (V14) at Citadel, which has an extremely difficult all-points-off dyno, so that one probably takes the cake. And then there's Nalle's Massive Dynamic (V14) in Buandik, which as the name suggests revolves around one very hard and massive dyno.
Rocklands, South Africa
Rocklands has become one of the worlds biggest hubs for bouldering. I've spent three seasons there since my first visit in 2008 and I always seem to find something new. The 2012 season I ticked off a lot of my old projects from previous seasons and found some great new lines right in the old areas.
The Champagne sector got some great additions this year too. I finally managed to climb a spectacular slab project this season, Peahi(V12). I also sent another old project on the same boulder as Livin' Large which got the name Modified Limited Rampage (V14). This one I couldn't even come close on working it the previous seasons, so it was a great feeling topping it out!
I spent many days hiking around the mountains for hours, but didn't manage to find quite what I was looking for. Still the potential even in the old areas is pretty good as so many great problems got put up right in the most popular areas during the -12 season.
