Lee Cossey FAs One of Australia’s Hardest Trad Routes in Grampians (5.13c/d)

Few things inspire us more than watching brave souls crush epic trad lines—and this week, we’re fortunate to feature Australian climber Lee Cossey establish one of Australia’s hardest all-trad lines with the first ascent of Agent of Cool [31 AUS (5.13c/d)].

Located in the Grampians, this route saw its first attempt from climber Dave Jones in the 90s, who was adamant that this challenging line should remain boltless. Thus, Agent of Cool had remained FA-less for almost two decades. The gymnastic movement that spans this incredibly aesthetic line make it a route guaranteed to muster some stoke in all of us.
