Double spread

By 30 January 2012News

As my dear friend Allie Pepper so eloquently put it, “check out Monique’s double spread”. She was obviously referring to the double page spread inside the magazine, weren’t you Allie?

I’m delighted to have scored the cover of Australia’s Rock Magazine. The photo is of Tom et je Ris, the 60-metre route that I climbed in Verdon Gorge last year. By far the best route I’ve ever climbed! See my earlier blog about it here. In the photo I’m on the final crux, about 50-metres up the route.

A big thank you to Simon for your encouragement and patience whilst I was attempting this route. I would also like to thank the belay-slave god out there that granted Simon’s wish sooner rather than later!

Simon has just about finished producing a video of this climb, stay tuned for that.
