3 stars. Full value 16. Seconded Lewis, who made it look relatively easy. Stuck purely to crack moves as that's what top roping is for! Led the second pitch which was a bit adventurous in the roaring wind.

The rock forces you to flow in a rhythm. Small to medium cams and wires.

16 The Gates of Janus

Remember the first time you fell in love, that feeling of fear and excitement. The overwhelming experience of desiring something that may or may not be yours. Let me tell you one thing about The Gates of Janus, I fell in love at first sight. And this is our love story.

Take a standard rack of cams with singles of #3, #0.5, #0.4 and doubles of #2, #1, #0.75 (or triples of #2 and #1, if and only if you want to stitch it up and I would recommend against it for the full experience. What is love without some excitement). A large nut or two down low can help save some crucial gear.

I took a deep breathe and started to layback, "high feet, high smeary feet" I kept telling myself. Stem across and place some gear, "bomber as", feeling the pump in the legs, that nerving pain spreading across the feet. Place gear, breathe, layback repeat. I bet that can be a legit song for this baby.

I wonder why they named it 'The Gates of Janus'. In Rome, wikipedia says, "The doors (the "Gates of Janus") were closed in times of peace and opened in times of war".

Climbing that day was a mistake.. attempted my first trad lead while battling a million/km per hr winds, sleet, and below freezing temps. Decided to downclimb after putting in about 3 pieces because I don't think even that could have been considered type 2 fun At least we were with cool people!

Possibly my proudest belay tick! Awesome to see Jason overcome the most profound trad jitters i have ever seen and power to the top of this classic. A highlight was a section of the crack (that he up and down climbed a million times) that ended up with like 9 cams in 5 metres in it or something like that. Gotta love triple #2s, #0.75s and #0.5s!!

We started at the obvious crack marked 'D' on the walkdown gully. However, we didn't pass a cavern, nor did we find a chimney. After 30m, we were at a summit, leading us to conclude the second pitch has fallen off.

What a climb, at first I thought I was oning to layback it but I ended up jamming most of the way. I got to about 2/3 height and realised that the biggest cam that I had left was a 0.5 and all I could see was a hand sized crack. After standing on the ledge for a while I went with the philosophy "If in doubt, run it out", after all how hard could it be, it is only a 16. Luckily the climbing wasn't too hard and I found a large wire somewhere up there.

We decided to carry on up what we thought was the second pitch of Gentle Mine, turns out it was the second pitch of Pig Iron Slaughter. Was worth doing though.

'Dirty chimney' is the understatement of the century! Highly vegetated, with most protection/holds in a giant pile of chockstones that you pray won't fall down mid-climb. Lots of rope drag, so take your extenders. Route can be a bit hard to find - just make sure you follow the chimney, then the crack to the top.

Traaadventure! A fairly nice chimney, but quite dirty and lots of plants. Built anchor on the left. Up slab and then right towards the crack and up. Fairly good protection but slightly run out at times. Will need quite a few extended pieces. Rock for natural anchor at top has dubious quality. Could go further and belay off a tree perhaps but rope drag might be high. We topped out in the dark, but there might be an overgrown track back to the gully. Easy enough to bush bash in the dark if you have friends calling out every couple of minutes - thanks abi and mate74!
