Over five years of first ascents from Buandik in 2009 to The Outsider in 2014, Mike and Dave Kellermann, along with Mike Forward
and Sophie Vivian, have been on a rampage.

They have been exploring and developing the bouldering—hundreds of new problems—in Grampians National Park, Australia for more than
15 years. This video features a handful of recent “King Lines.”
