About Gemma and Natasha

Since first tying onto a rope together in 1999, Gemma and Natasha have been on many joint climbing trips and expeditions. With a penchant for exploring and climbing in remote and lesser know areas of the world, they have put up numerous new routes and first ascents in mountain ranges across the globe. Although their main interest lies in climbing in alpine regions, they have also climbed in dry desert regions, insect-infested jungles, rugged sea cliffs, tropical paradises, and all across Australia, including their local Blue Mountains. In 2010 they added paragliding to their suite of skills, mainly with the intention of being able to fly down after summiting a mountain. 

They have received support from the Australian Geographic Society for many of their expeditions, and in 2009 were awarded the AG Society's prestigious 'Spirit of Adventure Award' for their climbs in the Indian Himalaya. They were also recipients of the international 'Shipton/Tilman' Grant for their 2012 Greenland expedition where they did many first ascent of peaks from which they also made paragliding descents.

Natasha works as a freelance videographer and photographer (see natashasebire.info) and Gemma works as a roping and climbing instructor around Australia.

Gemma and Natasha's love for wild places, and their minimalistic and low impact approach to climbing and exploring, ensures that if others visit the same places, they too can experience a sense of discovery and natural beauty in some of the world's most dramatic landscapes.

To a restless imaginative nature, the fascination of the unknown is very great
