Eagle Huntress – First Ascent

After months of studying the rock, Daniel Head – the premiere route finder in Kawakawa Bay, NZ – finished bolting the 6 pitch climb on the infamous Odyssey wall.

I had the pleasure of being invited down to photograph him.  So, dangling hundreds of feet in the air on a thin little rope, I abseiled down the cliff to the bottom, where I met the  the climbers who had hiked around the bottom of the lake.  As the 3 climbers began the ascent up the cliff face,  I ascended the rope next to them – doing the best I could to not sway in the wind or drop a lens to the rocks below.
