First climbed by Dai Koyamada in 2004, The Wheel of Life links the four main problems of the Hollow Mountain Cave, the Grampians, Victoria, Australia together to form one King Line. It is often considered closer to a route than a boulder problem and so given the grade V15 / 9a / 35.

Jake Bresnehan’s commitment to climbing this line was inspirational. Living 1,200 kilometerss away, he viewed it as a project that allowed him no excuses. He didn’t need to rely on belayers, conditions or weather; he just needed to drive there, walk up to the cave and give it a go.
