The climbing area of Mount Arapiles in Western Victoria, Australia is a stunning destination. What has brought me to Arapiles for many visits is that there are thousands of quality climbs scattered on the walls of this rock mountain. The rock is so perfect and so accessable that night climbing is an option as well. Here Jordan Webster, a climber visiting Arapiles from California, climbs the uber classic Agamemnon.
To make this shot require a fair bit of pre-planning as well as a small team to help light paint the climber and surrounding walls with light. I will write more about light painting and how I made this photo in my next column in Australian Geographic Outdoor.
