25 *** Attack of the Clones

The best pitch on Limestone I've climbed in Australia, and comparable in quality with even some overseas A-grade limestone climbs. Stemming, Tufas, Chandeliers, Roofs, Pockets, Weirdo blobs... MEGA! Just the one EOD shot (after 5 pitches of climbing, a 30m Jumaar, and a scary barely protected unnecessary traverse pitch). 2 falls on the Onsight attempt. A sneaky mid-height crux, and a tough bouldery top crux before the anchors. Pumpy. Will probably go in another shot or two. And WORTH the effort.

One of the best easier-grade pitches of climbing I've ever done in Bungonia. Immaculate rock for the 1st half, then deteriorating afterwards. Fortunately the whole climb has consistently GREAT climbing with a huge variety of engaging moves. Thoroughly recommended.

Tough at the grade. Originally given 22? Felt at least solid 21 to me. Sustained, but with a definate (and rather hard) crux. Thin and facey the whole way, but still enjoyable. NOT a good warmup.

Quite enjoyable. A lot of climbing and moves for a short climb. Funky (mud) tufas with a tricky last move. The rock quality is actually pretty reasonable for Bungonia. Might be soft-ish at the grade? Definitely worth a lap.

25 *** Asteroids

With JengA. As part of Iron Curtain and Screaming Tribesman for 350+m of climbing! A GREAT mixed bag of climbing. P1 - 2nd with rests (nails first 2 bolts, then pumpy tufa awesomeness); P2 - Onsight (Bushwalking); P3 - 2nd Clean (Hard, technical slab climbing. Very sustained. Really good.); P4 - Dog (Sustained face climbing. Mostly great); P5 - 2nd Clean (Ho Hum climbing. Unmemorable); P6 - Onsight (Fun steepish jugging, with a boulder problem at the top). A great adventure of high quality.

23 Screaming Tribesman

Repeat. With JengA. Pitch 6 (trad 23) ONLY. A true trad gem! Great rock and climbing the whole way. I've done this clean on 2nd before, and was REALLY looking forward to leading it today. I got flustered when I couldn't find a crucial gear placement, took a whipper back to the no-hands stance before the hard climbing. Started off again and CRUISED to the top. (Damn, I really should've lowered the 6m back to the ground). Disheartening, not to tick, BUT I still did all the REAL climbing clean...

22 *** Iron Curtain

Repeat. With JengA (again). This time we swapped our lead pitches from last time, and I led the 2nd pitch. All pitches clean. All pitches still felt hard for the grade, but much easier than last time. To be honest, I kind of cruised up this and just enjoyed it. Nice, cruxy, low-angle technical slabbing with some very spaced bolts (but lots of optional gear). A really good and clean route. JengA linked pitches 3 & 4 to make a MEGAPITCH (again).

Mixed feelings. 3 shots. Never found any of the hard moves (up to where the rock deteriorates) hard at all, including doing the "throw" move like an eliminate (avoiding the juggy flake of California Sunshine, and going straight up the face). It would be ALMOST a classic to here. But on link, with the super-fragile holds of the top disintegrating everywhere, and one rather illogical bolt placement fucking up my clip, it all went to hell, despite the climbing not being THAT hard up there. Hmmm...

One of the best "soft sandstone" routes of its type I've ever done... A shame that the rock deteriorates towards the top (and that it isn't longer). Didn't feel too hard for a 23. Awesomely polished compact slopers, that ALMOST climbs like a Taipan-esque "water groove" route, completely with stemming and rad body positions. Thoroughly enjoyable.
