Great climb although some spots need a bit more cleaning. Pitch 2 and 3 definitely highlights with jamming and one of the weirdest moves iv ever done. Onsighted P1 and P3 and clean second of P2. Would recommend this!

Seconding James, 2nd pitch only. Desperate thrutchy crux. Good line, bolting is probably done but still needs a lot of cleaning in places to get more than a star. Will bring broom next time.

Another dog to add to the list. I think I fell and a very common spot, after the last draw one metre from the top. It took me a few attempts to figure out a usable sequence for the last moves to the cliff top. Great climbing on mostly good rock but a couple of sharp holds, wish I was better at stemming.

This line is the most obvious at the crag and one of the funnest. The crux is in an Unlikly place, great top moves on the steeper head wall.

Not the best route at the gib and as a warm up felt tricky. I would hate to have tried this climb before the hammer cleaning.

Seconded all three pitches clean so JengA could go for the onsight. Short multipitching, but rad. 4th lap, and still loving it.

25 *** Slow Twitch Extension Classic Sport 40m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson
Sun 25th Aug '13

Stoked! First shot of the day placing the draws, and climbed as an uninterrupted 40m pitch from the ground. Not hard at 25 if you're a technical stemming master, but damned tough at the grade if your not (fortunately I'm right in the middle of that scale). Demanding climbing, and super-weird and technical. Tackling the crux sequence in the last 3m of ~40m of climbing is mentally taxing, especially considering the absurdity of the required moves. I HAD to come back for the send of this beauty.

20 ** Slow Twitch Very Good Sport 30m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson
Sun 25th Aug '13

Repeat as part of a giant linkup to the Slow Twitch extension. I've climbed this enough times that the funky trickiness of the slab section is under control, but still required my full attention. A totally worthwhile route in its own right.

This'll be great as a single pitch and probably safer this way if you go right at the top to take a longer but safer fall... otherwise if you plan on going right, take a helmet. :)

Leith took a hammer to the crap rock on this earlier in the day, and I'm glad to say my doubts about whether this would be climb-able with so many holds smashed off were proven very wrong. This is NOW actually a really enjoyable friction slab, with the rock that is left feeling very solid (will be great with some rain to wash off the rock-dust). Probably in the vein of a Tarana 17/18 (my only consistent comparison to this style of climbing).

23 *** Sluj Gulpa Classic Sport 60m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson

3rd pitch only, 1st shot today. After finishing up the Slow Twitch Extension (25), I rapped back to the hanging belay at the start of P3, and cruised it with John the Kiwi belaying (and his draws already on the route). Bloody brilliant climbing, and I'm stoked that I felt so-strong on it (after having climbed 3 x 25ish routes back to back). One of the best 23s out there.

25 *** Slow Twitch Extension Classic Sport 40m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson
Sun 11th Aug '13

Second shot. In some ways worse than the onsight attempt (I fell off below where I reached on the onsight, by overthinking a sequence and consequently making a mes of it), but the top (crux) moves went relatively easily once I got the brain in gear, and I FEEL like the Send is there for the taking. I can't wait to get back to this weird masochistic monster. Thanks for seconding me on this one, Leith.

Seconding Leith to get up to the belay at the end of P1 for another shot at P2. Still a pleasure.

A quick play-around on the money-section of this climb, under the watchful eyes of law himself. Very un-Gib-like, with weird strenuous and powerful climbing up a wall that isn't actually very steep. I look forward to cutting a lap on this once Mikl sends it. 24/25ish?

25 *** Slow Twitch Extension Classic Sport 40m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson
Sun 11th Aug '13

Warm-up, linked into the bottom pitch (20) to make a giant technical superpitch. Fell off at the last bolt on the onsight (which is the crux), then pulled back on and -after fumbling around for about a week- figured out the mind-boggling finale and topped out. Very 3D and super-technical, with some strenuously thin moves near the bottom, and an utterly blank final section that requires moves the like of which I've never used anywhere else. Brilliant!

Not quite classic, but unique and really cool. Most jamming I've ever done on a sport route. Led the 2nd pitch in a dry-mouthed hungover haze, but had to pull on the draw to get over the crux bulge, which may be harder than 20 and won't be getting any easier. Bring a brush for the last pitch as it is still cleaning up.

Closest non-sandstone to Sydney, get on it and get funky.

Fantastic climbing, a lot 'traddier' than I thought it would be, Lots of cool jamming and liebacking. Climbed with Sam and Damon. Onsighted pitches 1 and 3. Seconded Pitch two and fell at the crux. I think the crucial flake may have pulled off to the left. Great day out. Still a fair amount of loose flakes and moss, but will clean up with more ascents. Get on it.

With Paul. Pitch 1 - Second Clean, Pitch 2 - Onsight, Pitch 3 - Second Clean.

Pitch 2 was definitely the highlight of Comyn's. Delicate, balancey friction slabbing all in the feet. I really enjoyed the first few moves of this pitch.

20 ** Big Bird Very Good Sport 75m Southern Tablelands Marek

With Paul. Pitch 3 - Second Clean.

Only pitch 3 this time and did it instead of Comyn's last pitch which is supposedly a hike. I will never try to copy anyone else's technique on this beak because it doesn't work!

With Paul. Pitch 1 - Lead Clean, Pitch 2 - Red-point, Pitch 3 - Second Not Clean.

Finding a good sequence and getting really used to friction slabbing meant I could clean up pitch 2 which was a lot of fun. I was also happy with my progress on pitch 3. This time down to 1 rest, that being the nails hard move right before the end of the climb. I felt stronger than before on the remaining moves up to there.

With Marek. This time it was his turn to tick the first two pitches (done in fine style), and I wanted a rematch at the tough top pitch. 1st Pitch - Clean Second; 2nd Pitch - Clean Second; 3rd Pitch - Dog, I took another monster whipper 10+m (this time finishing the fall upside down) 1m from the victory jug (trying to throw for it). Even after a rest, the top sequence is bloody nails (24?), and the top clip is almost impossible. I reccomend clipping a 60cm Runner on it when you rap in! AWESOME!

Sun 10th Feb '13

Top Pitch only, this time. Climbed with Marek as part of a Comyns-Big Bird linkup (to avoid the Grade 10 doddle pitch at the top of Comyns). Funky moves to gain the "beak", heaps more fun on LEAD (clean) this time, rather than on second. Fist Jams and Offwidth technique for the WIN! (Though Marek disagrees with me on that).

20 ** Comyns Very Good Trad 50m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson
Sun 10th Feb '13

With Marek. 1st Pitch - Onsight; 2nd Pitch - Clean second. 3rd Pitch - Linked into top Pitch of Big Bird (18) rather than doing the grade 10 trad doddle to the top. Some funky friction slab moves up a groove (on trad gear) which climbs way better (and harder) than it looks, makes up the first pitch. The second pitch is airy, scary and technical to get established on the face around the arete, with nice friction slabbing to the belay.

Great great climb, fell off at the crux. I accidental found the required footer and a hold angled the right way it was put away nicely.

Not very appealing rock, brittle under foot. Though I still enjoy a good friction slab when I can get on one. the amount of footers are definitely fewer after my ascent, no amount of soft toes was going to save them.

Monumental and visionary, absolute classic. With Marek. Decided to link P1 & P2 together (not recommended, due to bad fall potential for most of P2). P1 - Onsight but for a few false starts (wasn't too sure how the route started). Hard start, exciting traverse. P2 - Onsight. Hard start, very thin friction slabbing. P3 - Dog. After a titanic struggle, I took a nice whipper from next to the last bolt, 1m from the jugs. Pulled back on and clean to the top. Stellar pitch with everything you want!

20 ** Slow Twitch Very Good Sport 30m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson
Sun 6th Jan '13

Exciting and varied. Hard slab start demands trust in the sketchiest of footers -I felt close to coming off-, and leads to amazing 3-dimensional climbing with an exciting finish up the corner, on good rock the whole way. Next time I'll have to try the top pitch (25) for sure!

22 ** The Anty Climb Very Good Sport 20m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson

Classic friction slabbing on GOOD rock. Would probably be a 19 at Tarana, but in reality 21/22 is probably more in line with modern grading. Sustained, technical and balancy. Genuinely pleasant to climb.

20 the Italian Route Average Sport 20m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson
Sun 6th Jan '13

After Nathan decided to rid this climb of footers, necessity meant using some of the more dubious footers. Despite cruising this friction slab, one of the aforementioned footers broke and off I came. Not a bad climb, but the rock is just too friable to stand up to many more ascents, and the contrived difficulty of the crap rock means this just isn't worthwhile.

23 *** Sluj Gulpa Very Good Sport 60m Southern Tablelands Marek
Sun 6th Jan '13

This multi-pitch was super fun. The first pitch had a fun crack traverse, the second pitch, a tenuous start followed by thin slabbing, and the final third pitch contained a mixed bag of thin slabbing, vertical face climbing and some tiring lay-backing to finish off. Pitch 1 - Second Clean, Pitch 2 - Second not clean (came off the last thin move before the end of the pitch), Pitch 3 - Second not clean (a solid climb with a few hard moves that made me peel off with a pump).

20 ** Slow Twitch Classic Sport 30m Southern Tablelands Marek

Classic climb. There was a tricky slab section down low that needed some commitment but otherwise the 3D style of climbing and the unique moves on the remaining parts of the climb were very enjoyable.

22 ** The Anty Climb Classic Sport 20m Southern Tablelands Marek
Sun 6th Jan '13

My first classic friction slab. All the hand and foot holds were solid compared to the Italian Route and a lot of balancing was required throughout the whole climb. The crux move that required a very gentle step-up on a small footer was the highlight.

20 the Italian Route Average Sport 20m Southern Tablelands Marek
Sun 6th Jan '13

Happy to onsight this slab although there are many crucial holds (particularly footers) that have come off on this route because of weaknesses of the rock in some parts. Nevertheless, there is no better way to start the day than with a bit of scary friction slabbing...!!

Sun 30th Dec '12

Climbing Big Bird was a really great way to end the afternoon, especially when Paul and I thought the rain was going to alter our plans. A very interesting mix of slabbing, steepish lay-backing and leg jamming makes this climb great quality. I loved the rock feature on the third and final pitch which resembled that of a beak. I must say I found it was a battle getting over the top of it, but leg jamming seem to be my only option. P1 - Onsight, P2 - Second Clean, P3 - Onsight.

20 ** Big Bird Very Good Sport 75m Southern Tablelands Paul Thomson
Sun 30th Dec '12

With Marek. P1 - Second (clean), P2 - Onsight, P3 - Second (clean). A great way to escape the crag, and good fun as well. P2 is the most involved (with some steep laybacking, an awkward crack/corner, and a hard friction-slab-esque move over a bulge), but the "beak" feature on P3 is intriguing and guarantees much hilarity. Good value.
