James Kassay climbs Wheel of Life Direct

NUMBERS

10 November 2012

About a year ago James Kassay climbed The Wheel Of Life in Hollow Mountain Cave, but even at the time he made it clear he was not content. "I have, for as long as I can remember, had a personal goal with my climbing... To start at the lowest point of Hollow Mountain Cave; climb Extreme Cool, Sleepy Hollow, Cave Man and then to finish up left on Dead Can't Dance which is the highest point of the cave. Today it has become a reality! I just did the first ascent of The Wheel of Life DIRECT!!! Personally it is one of the most amazing achievements of my climbing career! (Footage to come!)" --LC
