Journeys : Dec2011 Jan2012
Wings over the wilderness Chris Viney T he great jagged tooth of Federation Peak spears up from rainforest at the end of the Eastern Arthurs in Southwest Tasmania. As our Par Avion plane passes the crag, through the window I can trace the ribs, ripples, cracks, corners, ledges and overhangs that I recall from one perfect day, in another year. The last time I was this close to the cliff I was tied to a rope, wearing blue tights, orange helmet and a beard. It wasn’t a circus act – the rope, tights, helmet and beard were all real – it was a 350 metre rock climb, with companions John Burgess and Grant Dixon, on the mountain’s precipitous North West Face.
