1981. Dennis Kemp at Black Ians Rocks, Grampians National Park. Paul Daniels making a cup of tea. In many ways Dennis was a father figure to me. He taught me that there was no real generational gap when it came to the love of climbing. Dennis climbed purely for the enjoyment and love of it. He was a inspiration to us all. He died in an accident on Birdman of Alcatraz in 1990. He was 67 years old.
