Retro onsight..? I tried the start a long time ago but have no memory other then it being tricky. Had to dig pretty deep and fight like a soccerroo right to the bitter end. Pretty stiff and hard for a 5 but rewarding in in it own unique way.
Watched Andy send the other day and I have been building the psych ever since. Thin start then sustained wall getting harder the higher you go. Once you get through the crux you just and to hold it together for the big upper moves. Second shot.
I tried the very start of the roof above a year ago but couldn't even get established. Still a hard move today but once in the pocket its greatfun jugging and funky head wall.
Goodfun once you clear the start.
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.
