President

Jiri Stastny

Joined the CAWA committee to promote and save climbing in WA.
Qualification: ACIA Single Pitch Guide

I got into climbing way back in my 20’s when visiting a local crag not far from my hometown in Czechia. Unfortunately, after a few years of a great time on the rock, other activities got in the way. Still, luckily one cold spring weekend in 2015, I visited Eaglestone Rock and got utterly hooked again and haven’t stopped climbing since.

  • climbing area outside of WA: pretty much everything in Tasmania
  • crag snack: deconstructed falafel wrap and clif bars
