Free Climbing

Australia, 1986

Film

Rock climbing is a recreation for some, an obsession for others. “Free Climbing” was filmed at Mt Arapiles and Mt Buffalo and features hair-raising shots as climbers demonstrate safety and technical skills.

Since this work was made (in 1986) there have been significant rediscoveries of indigenous cultural heritage around Mt Arapiles (2019 - 2022). Some of the climbing areas pictured may no longer be accessible due to measures to protect this heritage.
