Description:

Controversial work in progress that has dragged on for more than two years without a first ascent! Maybe if people spent time climbing it rather than bolting and rebolting and bolt bolting then it would get done sooner? A 'trad project' that Macca was attempting - which then got ringed and then had some of the ringbolts disabled by 'bolting' them. 10 points for effort! Trad line through small rooflet - Marginal gear through roof, be careful... Bomber gear after roof, then traverse right to gear at right side of big break and up via crimps to gear, then easing to good nest of gear before final easy slab section. The race is on for who ticks this route - Jason or Macca? Stay tuned!! Either way this route was, is and always will be a trad route, if you can't step up to that challenge, please step back and stay away! . . .

Thumbs In (Direct Variant) Project. Harder start. Starts a few metres to the right and joins route before crux. Start at large shelf and head up via breaks, out through roof, left to better holds and long move past blankness.

Extension-Project(Trad) Macca. Continue up from the big block straight up the steepening with limited small to medium large gear options turn the lip and up 5m to belay on ledge. Good gear is available here but bolts might be placed to allow lowering or continue to top . . .
