12 Watchtower Chimney

I led the first and third pitch. I missed the bolt on the first pitch (didn't see it) and it wasn't a big deal to do it without it. Third pitch was mega classic. What an experience for the grade! I freaked out around mr chicken. Finally managed to push through for one of the most exhilarating sections around! I used LOTS of gear! Can't wait to get out and do it again. Hardest 12 I've ever done. But one to remember! The only reason it's not a mega classic is because the 2nd and 4th pitches are walk ups.

Started the climb around 4.30pm. "Better to bail before than after", was the advice given when I reached the carrot on P1 traverse.

Combined the whole thing in two big pitches (almost).

P1 is super fun. Amazing corner moves. Luke C led P3 chimney with exceptional grace.

Topped out just before darkness. #SpeedClimbing

Led pitch 2 and 4 (through the super awkward chimney, not the face!) Such an awesome climb! Lost my chalk bag on pitch 3 while chimneying, so we had to lower and repeat the pitch on toprope - fun times!!

Gone too far right at the start, end up down climbing on the slab, and just had to take a rest. Rest was pretty good. Chimney was a little bit scary to commit, but was quite ok. Need to do it again at some point.

Seconding chimney pitch dragging a backpack is much scarier than onsight-leading it.. By time I realised I should have just worn the backpack instead of hauling it couldn’t get both hands free to put it back on..

BenK did show much easiest way of doing roof - last time I went left (looking at mr chicken), turns out it’s much (maybe like 5 grades..) easier heading right onto the ledge, instead of continuing to bridge and squeeze under the roof..

Lovely corner climbing on the first pitch, with some tricky laybacking in sections. Lots of loose rock in the bottom of the chimney, so decided stringing pitches 1 and 2 together wasn't a good idea. P3 is the chimneying, which felt a little run out, and thrutchy in parts. Overall probably much more serious at the grade than something like Bard.

Led P1, soloed P2, seconded P3-4 strung together.

First climb for the day on a brisk morning. Had that good old Arapiles rock feel. Cold moves on the steep sections linked the first 2 pitches to the bottom of the chimney. A bomber belay spot to watch the next pitch. Had a look at 'mr chicken' squeeze then continued on. Made it interesting by making our own squeeze further up on a big wedge rock.

Excellent route. First pitch was exciting, maybe a little scarier than the chimney, although the rope drag was horrible even with doubles, that's what you get for looking after your seconds. Crux took some deep thinking, but it was well protected, just difficult to get anything out in front. Linked pitches 3 and 4 together, worked fine.

First 2 pitches are nice. Phil dragged me almost from the traverse while me seconding. Nice part after traverse. The 3rd pitch, the actual chimney, is just overwhelmingly mind-blowing. The guide "Arapiles - Selected Climbs" states for the 3rd pitch: "Up the chimney towards the ominous narrowing, blockage thingy. Negotiate this and belay just above." Hell yeah did I have to negotiate that thingy. Took me 3 attempts until I finally realised the correct route. Hint: Rubber chicken -> wrong way!

Great first pitch, kinda no hands traverse except for a tiny pinch up high. 2nd and 4th pitches aren't anything. 3rd pitch was enjoyable at the start and scary at the end. Traversed out of chimney too far (~>5m?), ended up going up main face for 4 m before traversing back to belay ledge, creating massive drag running it out heaps and having a fairly shit time ha. Won't be doing it again.
