Photo: Simon Carter The Totem Pole in Tasmania is a column of rock standing straight up out of the sea, doomed to topple at nature’s whim. Black Diamond Global Athlete Hazel Findlay was determined to climb it before that happened. Read Happiness is a Tasmanian Sea Stack on the Black Diamond Experience blog!
“Halfway up the second pitch, I found myself stuck, my right hand slapping wildly up the arête. Every time my body disconnected from the rock, the wind used my body like a sail and tried to rip me off the wall.”
