When people ask me why I climb I tell them it's because of the places rock climbing can take me. A recent adventure climbing the Moai in the Tasman National Park, Australia is a perfect example. This 35 meter sea stack off the coast of Tasmania has got a spectacular setting. There were three rappels to get to the base of the Moai Tower, with climbing to be done to get back out. Talk about committment!
The climb is rated 18, and is two pitches. But with the crashing waves, howling wind, and isolated location, it is full value adventure.
A bed of flowers on the summit greets the climbers. What better way to top out on one of Tasmania's classic sea towers.
