  3. Hmm not sure why my reply last week didn't go through! Sorry Steve! I believe we had just over 60 climbers last year. I think Red Bull might be opening it to a bigger number for next year
  4. 🤩🤩 WE ARE SO CLOSE! We now have 97 climbers registered! Who will be the lucky 3 to make it to 100 climbers?? 🤩🤩 The 100th climber who registers will get a free Arb Aus embroidered logo polar fleece vest. Everyone likes free stuff! There's 13 days to go before you show the world your skills at Red Bull Branched Out in Wellington, NSW. It's gonna be a huge, super fun event, and if you know a mate who's been on the fence about coming, get them signed up NOW -- it's now or never!!! www.redbull.com.au/BranchedOut
  5. Hi Chrissy, well you should sit where we do, everything is a long way from us as well! Our Australian dollar has a very low exchange rate against most other international currencies, so for you to travel here is half the cost of us travelling overseas. You should consider the ITCC event presented by the ISA annually, it is always been held in North America (except on two occasions, once in England and once in Australia.) On a more serious note, the event is only in its second year, it will be held in Australia for the next couple of years as it continually grows and improves. This year there are climbers from 12 countries represented. The key partners have a strong vision to move to an international circuit where the event is showcased in a couple of other countries with the main event always being held in Australia. A bit like Formula One or the surfing circuit. What we need is the support of everyone to grow the event into an international circuit, so do get on a plane, get over here and have a look around. You just might have a good time and meet some life long mates!
