Might be time to start planning the next climbing adventure! - Here's what @chris_fenzelino had to say about it, "The "Cave of man hands" in the southern part of the Grampians was our little "Hollow mountain cave" because the complete northern part was closed due to a bush fire earlier this year. It's quite small but nevertheless it offers nice steep boulders and we spent a lot of time projecting good boulders with an awesome group of very cool people. The picture showing Tabea in "Dos manos", the main goal for nearly all of us. In the end all of us succeeded which was crazy good! Australia, 2014." - So cool! Thank you @chris_fenzelino and Tabea for the adventure inspiration!! . . #adventurestartshere #gearjunkielife
