Getting out in a hurry. By Kate Leeming

March 27, 2020

Kate cycling Death Road, South Yungas, Bolivia

“As you are probably aware, I had to get out of Bolivia in a hurry, in fact we caught the last flight out of La Paz before the airport and country closed. Now on my sixth day of self-isolation, I thought I'd pull out a few images of me using the Hammerhead rain jacket. It was a vital piece of equipment given the rain and windchill I had to deal with.

Hopefully, I will be able to return to South America and complete the last two-thirds of the journey once this virus is under control.

Hope you are all OK at Mont.

Cheers, Kate”

With DMM chalking up 40 years in business, David and Byron imbue their knowledge and love of three DMM pieces with significant points of difference over other brand equivalents: the DMM Revolver Carabiner, Chimera 60cm Quickdraw and Offset Nuts.

Lee Side Turns: Spring Touring from Charlotte Pass. By Nick Hall

Able to travel into Regional NSW once more, David, Ben and I headed to Charlotte Pass for a day in the hills last weekend. Spurred on by a Winter's worth of snow cam watching, Warren Miller ski edits, and staring at my skis in the gear cupboard, I was only too excited for some backcountry turns.
