A collection of works about Balls Pyramid, an other-worldly rock formation off the coast of Lord Howe Island (NSW). This project responds to an unofficial, online archive titled 'The First Ascent of Ball's Pyramid, collated by the chief-climber Bryden Allen who lead the all-male expedition. The resulting works attempt to imagine the location, while exposing the archive and its voices to a feminist re-reading and re-imagining. In this work, I take the place of Bryden and stage an all female ascent on my own terms.
