Baring Head — the 2011 bouldering competition

Seems hard to believe it's over three weeks since I drove to Baring Head to photograph the annual bouldering competition. A cold, blustery southerly wasn't ideal, but cloud for the first couple of hours made the photographing a little easier. Later the cloud dispersed (to a degree) and the hard, contrasty, early afternoon light tested the limits of the camera — and photographer.

Here, Dan Pringle makes a high, scary problem look like a stroll along the beach.
