Rockmaster Publications (RMP) is a new frontier in the outdoor arena. Currently, we produce and publish rockclimbing guidebooks in Australia. We aim to provide accessible, high quality productions to the climbing community, whilst remaining ever conscious of climbing interests and needs. Sublime Climbs is our first publication and it details the finest routes at Mt Arapiles, Mt Buffalo and the Grampians.

Kevin Lindorff


The name says it all – a man synonymous with high value, minimally protected classics throughout the lands. Kevin has been climbing for over three decades, being involved in the first ascents of classics such as Sandinista (23***), Birdman of Alcatraz (23***), Delirium Tremens (24**), Dazed and Confused (20**), Kachoong (21***), Flange Desire (27**) and literally hundreds of others.  He continues to be inspired by crag and mountain environments, particularly those he can access without having to walk for more than 30 minutes!

Whilst the nine to five remains to influence Kevin's life, he still manages to live out his climbing passion on weekdays. After involvement in several guidebook productions, Kevin created and currently manages Rockmaster Publications. His most recent work as editor of Mt Buffalo - a rock-climber's guide (2006) stands him in good stead for RMPs select guide to Victoria.

Josef Goding


A local Melbourne inhabitant, Joe is a man of climbing talent and drilling bravado! Committed to keeping our cliffs safe, Joe has a strong grounding in climbing throughout the country, has contributed his time unselfishly to numerous Victorian Climbing Club (VCC) projects and has been involved in the development of various crags.

Keep an eye out for this cunning whippet next time you're at the crag, chances are he'll be there… either cranking grades, cooking up a storm or snapping some photographs for his next instalment of topos!

Jarrod Hodgson


Unlike the other hard men of RMP, Jarrod tackles his hardest routes in digital format! Not a grade chasing fellow, Jarrod has completed his belaying apprenticeship and got caught up in much of the antics that go hand in hand with getting out there. Much to Kevin's disgust, Jarrod also loves pulling on his walking boots to venture into our wild places.

With a keen eye for photography and design, Jarrod works creating and developing graphic and web design for Rockmaster Publications.
