James Pearson, one of Wild Country's top sponsees has put pen to paper and committed to the Wild Country team for another three seasons. James, one of the UK's top climbers has been with Wild Country for 5 years already, since his emergence as one of the brightest UK climbers in the early 00's and has cemented his strong relationship with this deal. James on Joy Division 8b, one of his big multipitch ascents earlier this year. James will be not only helping to test and prove Wild Country's latest gear but representing Wild Country across the globe as he makes his ambitious trips to such far flung regions and Chad or Greenland (as part of the North Face team) as well as missions closer to his new home in France - and obviously flying visits to the UK. James explained why Wild Country is such a good fit for him and why he chose to represent Wild Country: "Being a 'local lad' born a 'stones throw' from the Wild Country factory in the Peak District it was an obvious choice to work with Wild Country. I am proud to be an ambassador for the brand and help with the testing and proving of their new gear. I am hoping to really push myself in the next few years and having the support of Wild Country (as well as my other sponsors) makes all the difference.' Richie Patterson, Wild Country Marketing Manager commented: 'James has been an exceptional sponsee for Wild Country providing us with great feedback on gear as well as having an amazing appetite for rock which has resulted in some incredible ascents which we're proud to be associated with - I'm really happy that he's on board with us for the next few years.'

Almost 40 000 members have recorded more than 2 million ascents on several thousands crags. Before your next trip, you can print out Tick List in order to find the best and most popular routes and boulders. 100 000 climbs have been marked as recommended and you find them through the advanced search. In the near future, we will make all Tick List available through an 8a App and the next step is to turn this into an online world wide topo.

We will continue to bring you news from Australia and are always happy to hear from you (send a message to news Ed Lee Cujes). In addition to Aussie news, we'll also allow cool global videos, news on inspiring kids, and world's best performances. What we'll try to filter out on the AUS homepage is the run-of-the-mill country specific sends that don't relate to Australia (go to the Global page for these). At the end of the day, what we want on the AUS homepage is stuff that is positive, and makes you psyched to climb. Have a great 2012!
