Lifelist – Katharina Saurwein & Jorg Verhoeven klettern in Australien


As an extended honeymoon, Katharina Saurwein and Jorg Verhoeven travelled around the world seeking the best climbing destinations.
In Australia they found what they had been looking for by visiting the famous Grampians and the adventurous island of Tasmania.

A beautiful mixture of the red sandstone bouldering and route climbing in the Grampians made for a perfect contrast with Tasmania’s infamous sea stacks like the ‘Totem Pole’ and the ‘Four Pillars of Hercules’.

The narrative from the perspective of climbers looking for adventures down under.

Description DEU:

Katharina Saurwein und Jorg Verhoeven reisten während ihrer verlängerten Hochzeitsreise einmal rund um die Welt auf der Suche nach den besten Klettergebieten.

In Australien fanden sie was sie suchten in den bekannten Grampians und auf der Abenteuerliche Insel Tasmanien.

Eine Mischung aus Bouldern und Routenklettern in dem wunderschönen roten Sandstein in den Grampians ergab den perfekten Kontrast zu den kaum bekannten freistehenden Felstürmen, wie der ‘Toem Pole’ und die ‘Four Pillars of Hercules’ in Tasmanien.

Die Erzählung aus der Perspektive von Kletterern auf der Suche nach Abenteuern ‘down under’.
