Climbing at Mount Boyce

Richard's brother Peter was keen to try out climbing for the first time today. Richard tool him to Mount Boyce for a taste on "The Erie". Peter's girlfirend Zoe found a safe pirch to watch from, where she snaped these pictures.

This is Peter seconding up the final pitch of "The Erie". What a great climb too! I'm sitting behind Richard up the top, belaying Sunshine up "Set, Piece, Battle", a harder climb at grade 14 (though I reckon its even harder again). If you look closely at the photo below you can see Sunshine about to sink her teeth into a steep section, while Peter prepares himself for stepping out of the cave on the erete.
