15 * Hope

Short and fun. Very well protected with small cams or absolutely bomber nuts. One somewhat painful and comitting crux jamming move, which is probably easier and less painful if you have tall reach.

17 *** Flake Crack

Well protected if you have a lot of cams - doubles to BD #3, and one BD #4. Scary and committing moves on the layback flake and at the roof near the top. Good jamming through most of it, though the off-hand section at the very top was a little tricky. 2 carrot bolt belay.

24 *** Groseness

With Neil. Led P1, P3, and P5-P6 (linked). O/S all my pitches, and Clean 2nd on Neils. One of the best "harder" multis I've done in the Blueys. Generally great rock, no choss bands, minimal ironstone edge pulling, and 200+m of uninterrupted exposure. Great climbing on all pitches except the vegetated 10m exit pitch. Clean and mostly vegetation free. Quite runout on bash-in carrots (11 bolts in 45m gr24!) and each pitch is dangerously runout off the belay. With a face-lift, this would be CLASSIC!

3 shots. I cant believe I still haven't ticked this. Didnt sort beta for the top on my opening lap, and made a dogs breakfast of it on the 2nd shot. Feels damned solid for a 24, but great climbing despite being so short. Next time.

3rd shot. Sure it's short, but it's way more fun than I expected. O/S to the last bolt, then my foot slipped trying to gain the undercling (at the bit where all your feet run out). 2nd shot I fell off reaching the anchot ledge, still dogedly trying to use the final sequence out right and ending up with the rope behind my feet. 3rd shot was an enjoyable romp. Short, powerful and endurancy, but boulder-problem free. A nice touch for The Glen.

For some reason decided to go for the Onsight in the full sun. Fell of gaining the traverse when I misread the sequence. With some beta this would be very flash-able. Quite easy, pleasant climbing until the last 7m or so... then it turns it up a notch. The last move to the snchors could be frustrating.

1st shot today, 2nd shot total. Went quite easily when there is chalk on the crux holds (so you don't have to hang around to find them). More sustained than Language of Desire, but with a less prominant crux. Quintessential Blueys slabbing.

Magnificent route, but the mantle start was definitely not grade 15 - more like 18. (Though at least it is somewhat well protected by a small hex or large but in the top of the crack, without obstructing jamming opportunities.) Then a runout traverse leads through possible groundfall territory to easier climbing at the arĂȘte, before some committing, pumpy jug-hauling to finish. 3 carrot bolts up the arĂȘte and two at the belay.

Led pitches 2 & 4 and seconded the rest clean. Really fantatsic climbing the whole way (no choss band!). Where else can you find 200m of clean air and vertical wall in Australia? The bolting is quite runout (11 bolts in 45m) and almost every pitch has a nasty bold runout to a high first bolt with decent ledge splat territory. I'm really really glad I bough a set of link-cams - they alleviated several runouts. Anyway -enough negatives - this route is AWESOME. Everyone should do it.
