didn't finish the climb sadly. A big jug exploded when i weighted it for a rock over move above the third bolt. This send awaits for another day.

20 *** The Last Wave

Sweet walk out to the platform guided by ropes, extra nice view if you walk past the climb and up the rockfall around the corner.

Good three pitches, funny start and some nice moves on P2. Definite crux just past the 3rd bolt on the last pitch, pretty reachy move to get up.

Brilliant chossy start with nice moves, a sneaky right foot requiring pullup, to a nice enclosed space out again to be exposed on a flaked face, a potential walk out position OR fun couple of moves over some rock-fingers to the final RB (three RB's for cleaning/observing quite far back from the face)

Only did P1. The bolts look much further spaced when on lead and there are a few unnerving moments. Particularly the last bolt before the anchor, It's about 4m of run out and the hanger is badly warped. Big challenge raping down to recover the draws, took a few big swings and really annoying 50m of ascending on prussics. BD Posiwire left on the second bolt by mistake on the 8/8/14. If you want it take it.

21 Matt's Climb

I think seconding with rest is an understatement. The first 10m is great and really good moves, then when the bolts start again the it gets really chossy and generally not so nice. I'm sure the last few moves coming out from the roof would have been great but i couldn't really see anything with it being night and all. EDIT: since returned in an attempt to clear the choss from the second pitch, about 30% still remains but it is a vast improvement.

Didn't quite make it past the crux, had about 3 good goes at the move just after coming out from the overhang. The first 10m or so is really great climbing especially the first bouldery 3-4m.

Only made it to the overhang (third draw) but what an awesome climb to that point! Had to scrub the first major sloper hold as it was covered in salt residue but after that it was highly satisfying. The moves! The holds! I'll be back to tackle this one again!

I didn't get pumped this time, probably because I remembered where lots of the key holds were located. Three times a charm, next time I'll do it clean. An amazing climb with good holds, some cool moves and makes you work for your send. One of the greater Sydney climbs.

Seconded by lucky. Great experience for my first multipitch. All pitches were clean and onsite except the one last where I pulled on a draw at the crux because of pump. P1. Interesting first few meters with a tricky mantle at the 2nd bolt. After this it's all jugs to the DBB. P2. Short and full of mantles. P3. Helps if you're tall. Great committing few moves coming out under a slight overhang. Two more mantles and you've topped out on a great climb. Great views and only 5m from the footpath.

As expected for a sea side cliff (especially at the mouth to a gully) there's a bit of sand floating about. The key is not to use those holds. I found lots of alternate holds and got through the climb (on the dog sadly) with no serious issues. It's a steep 18 which offers a good challenge. Certainly earns the two stars. Did it on a sunny and warm day which added to the fun of it. Make sure you avoid high tide and slip slop slap if you're there before the afternoon.

Chossy. Bird poo in my face, but I still enjoyed it. Took a soft ground fall between the 3rd and 2nd bolt at the start (quite a bit of rope stretch), after breaking a hold. Didn't quite get my rhythm on after that. Broke another hold near the top for a big swing around the corner. Note to self: trust nothing on the sea cliffs.

Did this in 2 pitches - Michael put in a couple of bolts to protect the start and crux (getting through little roof onto main slab), plus bolted the belay ledge at the end of P1. P1 is no more than 16, with P2 easier but even chossier. Lots of sand, earth, foliage, luxuriant shrubberies, nesting birds, death blocks in a beautiful position. A grand old fashioned trad ramble now made sane with a couple of bolts.
