Everyone else said this was a bit loose and had broken things off, but by the time I got on it was all chalked up and everything I touched was fine. More traffic can only improve it.

At another time this experience should have left me despondent, but somehow after humping and aiding the crap out of a vegetated offwidth crack full of lomandra I got to the top happy. Closer to type 1 fun than type 2 fun.

Headed for here as it was probably the only dry problem nearby. Raining properly now but worked and resent it in a couple goes. Decided to leave the pads here to get headlamps and come back and see if there was any problems underground in the cave, then got distracted by cold pizza in the car, then by crawling through storm drains, and then the crew turned up for a caving trip and it was only once I was home that I discovered we'd left the pads there!

Utterly frothing on this, I cannot understand how such an obvious and high quality line has been unsent all these years. The more I scrubbed the more froth was exposed. Thought it would go fairly easy but it's put up quite a fight. Each move gets progressively harder. Great holds, nothing is tweaky or sharp. I did find some tat at the base so I don't think we were the first to try it but I doubt it's been sent. Probably a dozen attempts, able to get to the face rail and juiceless for the dyno. The right finish is a hard mantle, the left finish ads a few great moves and looks more doable.
