Lead and boulder with Tom O’Halloran
Are you a sport climber sick of punting off the last move of your project? Or unsure of the best way to go about working a hard route? Or even a crusher looking for that one percenter that might make all the difference? Then this workshop is for you. In this session, Tom will share his wisdom and skills and help you improve your technique in the world of sport climbing. The logistics of fitting training and life and his approach/philosophy around certain areas of climbing.
Workshop with a climber who needs no introduction!
Tom O’Halloran is one of only two climbers representing Australia in the Olympics. And he’s not a slouch outside either and has established many of Australia’s hardest routes up to grade 35! In 2016 he red-pointed ‘Baker’s Dozen’ and ‘Kitten Mittens’, both 35 (9a), becoming the first Australian climber to succeed on routes of this grade, and in 2017 climbed the legendary Grampians boulder problem, ‘Wheel of Life’ V15 (8C). Then, on his last trip to WA, he flashed one of the hardest boulders here, ‘Finding Max’, at Copper Rocks.
So, evidently, Tom knows a thing or two about climbing.
