Hot off the Press
Lou & Cody are very proud with the recent exposure within some of Australia's (and the world's) most highly acclaimed publications. What started with an incredible feature by Tourism Australia on their website back in early May, soon led to a fantastic article by Great Walks magazine, and an online article through Lonely Planet. More recently we have had two feature articles in the Weekend Australian over two consecutive weekends within the Review lift-out, and the June edition of WISH Magazine! We could not be happier with the stories and cannot believe that we are seeing ourselves gracing the pages of these publications after only one year into our venture!
Please, take a look at the articles, and do not forget about our News page on our website for all of the latest!
Our friend Andy, his friends and Federation Peak in Winter.
Our good friend Andy has joined us as a guide to help make Wild Pedder as good as it can be and he certainly adds a lot to our experiences. Andy has a swathe of outdoor adventure experience. He is known for spending months at a time in Tasmania's and Australia's wilds, often by himself. An incredibly exciting project that Andy and his friends have been working upon is releasing their film Winter on the Blade: an independent mountaineering expedition that conquered the first winter ascent of Blade Ridge on Federation Peak, Tasmania last year.
After ten hours of nerve wracking climbing that involved negotiating over 400 metres of vertical rock, Mark Savage and Mick Wright were nearing the crescendo of their epic: a slimy, overhanging roof blocked their way to the summit.
They are currently putting the final touches on the film, and look to have it showing at international film festivals soon. Check out the Winter on the Blade webpage and Facebook for more sweaty palmed madness!
