20 To the Crux and Beyond

Awesome route, got stumped by the wide section and my attempted arm bars just slipped out good to take a fall in some gear bigger than 0.5 though

20 To the Crux and Beyond

I definitely found the width of this to be challenging. Mostly pretty easy but it required some serious thrutching on my behalf to surmount the offwidthy bit.

Second shot. So much pure burl. Loved it.

Brought the right rack this time, but still had a sit in the middle. Tough transition from fist jam to offwidth with undercut feet.

Definite offwidth crux in the middle. Couldn't stick the move gaining the off width, jammed rope with foot in crack and was unable to pull rope to clip No5 cam. otherwise start and end of route is straightforward crack climbing.

Pretty brutal width. Great to get back onto something like this though.

Made a mess of this. Didn't want to commit to all that wide stuff with only one #4 and resorted to French tactics.

Slightly damp for added excitement. A brilliant looking line, and very interesting crack climbing. Not too hard at the grade, though the fist-and-offwidth nature of the crux might prove challenging for some. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Starts off thin hands then good jambs then 5m of scary old school arm barring struggle fest, another lyle closs and Ian lewis 1970s classic. Would take double #4 and single #5 next time.

Climbed this one day wearing pant more suited to a summer frolic out in Byron Bay than climbing a barely protected off width above a little cam behind a detached flake... it felt sketchy to me but the climbers club from accross the gorge came down later to shake my hand ....

Backed off halfway up when confronted with a 10m offwidth and i only had two finger crack cams. Got back on and commited to the wide crack action. Really good.
