Zac in action

Zac Orme won the men's expert section of the National Bouldering Series event at Baring Head a couple of weekends ago. I think the intense concentration apparent here explains why.

Watercats, you'd be right about how strong they are — they can hang on to holds I have trouble seeing! Technique's more important for most climbs, though, and a good climber can flow up a climb as if gravity no longer exists. A joy to watch.
