Tom O'Halloran

Since day one of climbing, Tom was hooked. That was back in 2004 in Brisbane and since then he has climbed all over Australia and the world, both for competition and rock. In 2011 he wanted to live closer to climbing, so moved 1000kms south to the Blue Mountains.

Since then, he has established some of the hardest routes in the country and continues to look for the next unclimbed line that inspires him. In 2021 he represented Australia at the Tokyo Olympic Games, becoming the first Australian male to compete for Australia in the Olympics. Tom lives in Blackheath with his partner Amanda, daughter Audrey and Jack Russel x Pug (Jug) Maggie.
