27 ORANGE JAM

I had to see what all the commotion was about... turns out it actually is a sensational piece of crack. Just gave the first pitch a whirl on top rope before climbing Slipstream with a mate and surprised myself climbing it clean first go for warmup. Thought it would have been much harder, Ive only led 24 crack, but it didnt feel that different to 5.11+ in the Creek. Should have just gone ground up after all... will be keen to return with a stack of microcams for the lead. A 60m rope hit the ground from the top anchors with about 5 metres spare, could totally be done in one pitch.

Climbing on and putting my holds in Hermione may have been my favorite climb so far. Definitely top 3. Climb with great holds for a late Beginner/Early Intermediate and beautiful view. Just don't go when it's windy and sprinkling. Makes the climb a bit higher grade than a 17.

Clean repeat, this time Seconding Neil. Still great. Seriously deserves an onslaught of additional traffic.

The epiphany that this ISN'T Aladinsane (read my last ascent of this route on TheCrag) has caused me to question my life choices, where I'm going in my future, and what I really want to achieve. What is the meaning of the life, and the nature of the universe? Does our inability to measure self-awareness in other species actually preclude the possibility that it exists, and if not, do we need to change our perspective of our uniqueness on this planet. If the defining characteristic of self-awareness is the capacity for self-doubt, which can only be instantiated through the existence of other people (to whom we ascribe a value of their opinion great enough that we entertain the possibility that their perception is right, and ours is wrong) mean that the very notion of "self awareness" is a physical impossibility without a society, and thus was Sartre right when he proclaimed "hell is other people"?

18 Reincarnation

2018 Update - Back when I climbed this in 2017, I thought this was Aladinsane. I blame Ben Jenga (who also thought this was Aladinsane when he climbed it back in 2010 with me in the posse as a nub trad climber), as I just went straight for the route he'd climbed that day. So, yeah, I feel pretty dumb.)

Original 2017 comments: "Spectacular climbing up a soaring line with oodles of bombproof gear [...] Mostly good rock, varied and continuously engaging. The crack is beautifully clean. Finishing up at the Jezebel belay is the correct way to finish this climb, just traverse left for miles on an obvious clean #3 cam break.

Excellent well protected and sustained crackline. The only downside is the lack of an anchor. Guide says traverse off to Jezebel's first anchor - don't do what I did and mantle out onto the super nasty shale ledge! Instead, traverse left along horizontal break 2m BELOW the ledge and DOwNcLiMB to Jezebel's hidden anchor. I ended up crawling right along shale ledge to anchors on Blast Off as the mantle was irreversible. Would be an absolute trade route with an anchor at the top of the crack below the shale ledge.

P1 - clean on 2nd. Really enjoyed this pitch. Felt like a wierd Moonarie old school line - polished rock. P2 - speed french free ascent on 2nd to beat the setting sun. Incredible waterwashed rock and burly climbing. Unique in every way. So much better/harder than it looks from below. The tree you rap off is highly dubious.
