Edelrid Orion

This harness from Edelrid is great in all situtions. With its adjustable leg loops and comfortable wide padding it works just as well aiding up Ozymandius or sport climbing in the Grampians.

In terms of comfort, the Orion holds its shape beautifully, making it easy to get on and off, and is probably the most comfortable men's harness in the store.

Cordillera Blanca - Slow Motion Hiking

Last month Bogong's owner, Neil, embarked on a 16 day walking trip throught the Peruvian Andes. With some passes as high as 4,800m (with about 60% of 
sea level air pressure) Neil found plenty opportunity to stop and soak up the majesty of the mountains.

  HP ice climbing at Mt Buller
Ice Climbing - In Australia?

This winter HP headed out to Waterfall Gully near the summit of Mt Buller for a quick spot of ice climbing.

While not really comparable to New Zealand (or just about anything in the northern hemisphere) he says that 
it was a "great way to keep his technique in tune".

So if you're looking to head to overseas for some winter climbing but you are feeling a tad rusty, then perhaps consider checking out Mt Buller next winter...if the conditions are right.
