Winner climb painting

Hello everyone, the last update before I leave you all in peace :)

As mentioned in my previous post, the painting winner was Henk Grobler and I suppose for community accountability and transparency here's the climb that he picked that got turned into a painting. Congrats dude!

Nico, this painting is brilliant. I'd love one, doing EC still remains as one of my best climbing experiences. Is it hard to ship to the UK?

Thanks for the great feedback guys ^_^ what a joy to make it. Also made me super psyched to go try it!

Chris, shipping to the UK is totally possible but I think it might actually be easier to find a high quality print production company on your side and have them print it there. I'll pm you and we can chat about some options =)

Nico, congratulations on capturing the feeling that prow bring to us climbers. I can’t wait to hang it in my study!

And in return I offer to go climb Energy Crisis with you.
