MacIntyre Falls Middle gorge The golden wall
V4 The golden dawn

Oh man, too too much of a good thing. I was getting spent 10 or 15 problems ago and was just like a kid at the show. I had one attempt at this and was just so keen to put it together but I finally shut down. Possibly the most sends in a day ever! So much froth, and we didn't even get to the crack cave or to a bunch of stuff at slippery rocks that we scouted in the morning. Always gotta leave something for next time

MacIntyre Falls Middle gorge Jump shot
V3 Jump shot

Wasn't sure I would get this, the hold just hasn't feeling great and I was barely slapping it. Stacking a second pad was counter productive as they just sagged more when you pounce, and I was getting worse. Then James stuck the hold but then got tangled in the mantle, so it was unlocked. After that it was a send train

15 Bicameral desires

We both rapped of in different directions seeing what else was around. Couldn't leave this nice little hand and fist crack undone. We hadn't planned on climbing anything so the only pro we had was a single blue cam - a second cam would have been great. Clipped the jumar on the rap line as a workaround

24 Heaving Falcons

Utterly stoked to second this clean, one of the hardest brawls I've had with a route. The first layback gets you warm quickly. Was able to rest properly this time in the first roof, busted across and then managed to find an almost comfortable full lie down rest with a knee bar holding me in. Pulled the lip expecting to pop and just held on breathing hard and trying to slow down for the rest. Just lay down for 5 mins at the top trying to breath and not dry retch

24 Heaving Falcons (Roof crack project)

Wow! The chossy start is a little off-putting but this thing is great quality after that. The traverse is good, the roof crack is great, pulling the lip is an utterly sick move getting almost inverted, and the sustained offwidth after that is just plain sickening I laybacked most of the offwidth cause that's how I roll, but it burnt me out, when I finally dragged my arse over top I wanted to chuck. Rope drag was bad, needs lots of long slings.
