1 Vidler's Chimney

Still awaiting a first ascent... Absolutely not so... some of the greatest pioneers in SEQ climbing were there in 1953. From Mike Meadows tribute to John Stephenson - "Jon joined with John Comino and two others, George Ettershank and Ron Moss, to make the first ascent of Vidler’s Chimney, a vertical crevice, splitting the eastern cliffline on Mt Lindesay. It was named after Lyle Vidler who died attempting the first ascent in 1928. When the successful team returned to Brisbane, Jon told his friend Bert Salmon the news. Salmon suggested he inform the press, which Jon did, relaying the details of their climb to an ‘unmoved’ journalist."
