Sent placing the draws after sending my project. Felt much easier then when I tried it a while ago, sweet to lock the crux but I still had to work hard on the upper moves.
Would be classic if it wasn't for the choss cave.
What an amazing route to finish our tassie trip on.
A couple of big start moves get you off the ledge then your faced with the first big crux moves. A little rest follows then brilliant and committing side pulls and slaps on poor feet sets you for the mid height rest.
Don't drop your guard yet as an upper head wall of 23/24 Bare Rock Black classic holds still awaits.
This area is a must for a tassie trip and perfect full day sun winter climbing.
Just like an arapiles steep trad gully grovel but in all the best ways. The steep groove start kept trying to spit me out but like a tick I dug in and up to easier ground up and left. Greatlayback finish with bomber gear.
Long Long and wickedfun.
As far as a warm up goes I was pretty pumped at the top after a well fought fight. The mix of trad and bolts keeps you on your toes the whole way with many thought provoking sections and sick moves.
I would like to thank the locals Barney, Skanky Tail and Wendy for there support..
I wasn't expecting much from myself but after climbing clean through the steepcrack start and keeping calm on the thin/funky face I found myself under the roof resting for the finally boulder. With a scream that would have made Ondra proud I topped the route :0
My first sample of the mega wall. I was cruising until I got to the funky side pull crux then it all went wrong.. Some hard pulling got me back on line but set a pump for the rest of the route. This rock takes a bit of getting used to but it all in the body positions.
