The Natimuk Cafe in man street. Our new home and the start of a new life path. Next door to Arapiles, the Grampians and the Little Desert. Great places!

Gathering Dust. I shot this pic of the late, great, Jeff Lamb in 1980 at Arapiles. Jeff was one of the UKs best climbers, having established many hard classics in the Lake District during the 1970s. He emigrated to Australia in late 1979 and quickly became part of the vibrant local scene. I really can't identify the route but I suspect that it is on Squeakeasy Wall. It maybe on Quisling Direct Start (22), which Jeff and I put up (with Pete Mills) in April 1980. Can anybody confirm the route? Jeff was killed at Frog Buttress in 1984.

Gathering Dust. February 1981. Steve Toal on the Protagonist (24) at Ben Cairn, near Melbourne. The (pre sticky rubber) EBs added an extra grade and the headband just looked cool.
