Ace climber Ivan Vostinar in action on one of the harder climbs at the Baring Head Rock Hop. This particular wall is called the Only the Good Die Young wall — a tribute to young New Zealand climber Phil Herron who died many years ago in Patagonia. Perhaps the southerly wind howling along the wall on the day of this year's competition added an additional reminder of Patagonia.
