Too Rope Solo investigatory lap. A climb ive always wanted to do (thanks mostly to Simon Carter's photo), and figured I'd have a look before dragging out a belayer. Ridiculously exposed and very steep - Rope soloing this was scary enough, and made me feel very small. P1 has a bouldery thin/sharp crux from 2nd - 4th bolt, and sustained 24/25 face and arete climbing above. The crux is contrived to force the difficulty. I had lots of falls. P2 is easy slab/face climbing (which I did clean on TRS).

24 * Stolen Inspiration!

25 in the new guide, and 25 for sure! Probably not the route to try and onsight in the dark with a headlamp. Onsight ended at the start of the crux gaining the main headwall, then took some big falls trying to work out the rest of the crux (lobbing for possible holds in the dark). The runout crux might seem illogical, but if there were another bolt, crux falls would land you on the ledge. Generally sustai ed this climbing on mostly good rock (at 23/24), with a tricky and committing 4m thin crux.

Great, fairly tricky face moves between tedious cave rests encompassing dubious rock. Still pretty happy with the onsight, as there wasnt a grain of chalk on this, and the two hard sections were quite sequency. Not as good as Transmission, but a bit easier.

Top Rope Solo lap (to work out where the bolts need to be before rebolting). I ticked some crux holds up on the way down, then climbed the entire climb, bottom to top, clean as an epic 75m warmup. About as good as its neighbour, San Pornando. P1 has 2 very tough cruxes and easier climbing, P2 is more vertical and more sustained, though quite straightforward, one nice pale orangr and light grey rock. The upper slab isnt too bad, and linking P1 into p2 for a ~60m pitch will be mega. P3 is junk.

Fairly 'on' from the start on very good rock, then eases to steep jugging for the top. No final move, however good, warrants placing anchors over an edge that chews your rope. These need to come down a bodylength.

First shot today. I tried it 3.5 years ago just after the crux hold broke. Went direct through the crux today, crimping on what remains of that hold (a miniscule sandy slimper) as hard as I possibly can while working the feet. Sustained in a 20/21 category, EXCEPT for the one crux move. Really enjoyable Blueys grey-slab slabbing (except for the crux) in a nice, long, quite runout pitch (9 bolts in 38m!).

Definately suits a certain type of climber. It's quite similar to a Nowra steepish-wall route at Thompson's Point... Short, burly, but with an appropriate degree of trickiness. I think I could do this 2nd shot, but not feeling it today. Might be a tough one to onsight. Generally good rock, and the moves ARE cool... once I worked them out.

Hard at the grade. A bloody hard move down low leads to easier, enjoyable steep juggy climbing. The crux right at the top is probably harder since the upper glued-on flake has broken off. I managed to static it with some creative footwork (and big wingspan).

23 ** Alive 'n' Kicking

Great climbing, lots of tricky moves, and solid at the grade... Ruined by a crappy re-bolt (seems to be the theme of the re-bolted routes at this end of Bardens). Burly to gain the flake, techy up the flake, then a nice combination of power and techniness at the crux followed by sustained easier climbing on great orange rock. I was hanging on those crux holds for quite a while trying to figure it out.

Might even be classic if not for the ledge. A cam or two (small to medium) for the first 5m. A few moves at the grade, though sustained at an easier (though still challenging) grade. I thought the entire pitch had interesting moves, and even the slightly grotty section just below the anchors is intriguing. The crucial pocket move is funky!
