Thought Tasmania was just apple orchards and the end of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race? Think again. This island state of Australia is an outdoor lover’s paradise, with wild coastlines and incredible rainforests to explore. And a 200-foot natural climbing wall called the Totem Pole. Located in Cape Hauy, the Totem Pole is a natural rock formation ‘known as a sea or coastal stack,’ towering 65 meters into the sky. Australian photographer Simon Carter captured these photos of climbers tackling the iconic landmark, and as you can see, it’s no cake walk.
