"Over all my trip was one of the best trips I’ve had. At first things were a bit grim in the Gramps. 10+ days of rain will get anyone down. But as soon as I was back in Sydney the sun was out and I climbed almost every day for the next 2 and a half weeks. Well I still had to put in some rest days but not that many. I needed to make up for time spent waiting to see it the rain would stop."
When he returned home, Phillip found the new Hornet climbing shoe just waiting for him to try them out! "The verdict is, they are really good. Maximum toe pulling power and a great heel ... I APPROVE!"
