James Kassay on The Wheel of Life Direct (V15?)


In November 2012, Aussie James Kassay added 10 moves to the already exhausting and difficult Wheel of Life in the Hollow Mountain Cave in the Grampians, Australia. The climb has always provoked a difference of opinion about its grade, with some climbers labeling it V15, V16, or even 5.14d. The original Wheel of Life links four separate boulder problems, which Kassay climbed in September 2012. Two months later, he started at a lower point and added 10 moves at the cave's high point.
