So good. Rock is so much more featured in this area. Get on it.

V7 *** Crystal Caves Classic Boulder Mt Yarrowyck Alan Ezzy
Tue 2nd Sep '14

Such crazy rock and movement to get from the start jug into the higher pockets. Well worth the walk especially if your up near sharpest mono area. Higher V4 start is just as classic.

Really good problem. Looks like it has been done before. Start foot needs some glue.

29 No Frills Classic Mixed 20m, 8 Gara Gorge Ben Vincent
Fri 1st Aug '14

Perhaps unsurprisingly this is a pure crimp fest! The start of the climb is quite fun before the vertical section starts. Made a few links through the cruxy very static crimpy section directly above the horizontal break. The top half is a little smoother - not sure it would be after linking what lies beneath. And then there's the view! What an awesome route!

27 ** Chicks Dig Scars Classic Trad 25m Gara Gorge Ben Vincent
Fri 1st Aug '14

Crux moves felt better this time around. Still have to psych myself for the move up and through the overlap - some staunch layback/pinching, high opposing smearing and teeth gritting get you through it and into a beautiful but nails finger line. Will need a serious bowl of weet-bix (and a few more T.R's) before having a 'proper' non-top-roped go at this.

V8 * Body Darma Classic Boulder 4m Gara Gorge Ben Vincent

Another crack. Got the chip again (I wonder how long that chip will last) and then didn't know what to do with it....Must put some effort into taping fingers, BD isn't getting any less sharp!

20 ** Angels and Us Classic Trad 83m Gara Gorge Richard Curtis
Fri 25th Jul '14

Just as good as I remembered, perhaps better. Pleased with how I climbed but had to rest on a runner to get two hands to a stuck wire.

Fri 25th Jul '14

Seconded this one. Had to rig up a back rope on the traverse as I couldn't see the footholds in the gathering darkness. Ben could barely hear me and must have wondered what the f___ was happening as I called for 'slack on yellow and tight on white'. Aided a couple of moves on the fisty crack in the dark before grabbing the fig tree with a degree of relief. Untangled the ropes at the top purely by feel. - Another adventure. Oh Yeah!

12 *** Wollomombi-Chandler Ridge Trad 330m Wollomombi Falls Brian Cork
Tue 29th Jul '14

Climbed the ridge again after 20 years. Still just as intimidating, chossy, vegetated, scary and classic as I remembered. It is as close as you can get to alpine climbing in NNSW. A great adventure for those who appreciate the opposite of sport climbing.

Tue 29th Jul '14

An awesome way of getting to the bottom of the gorge. The chains and bolts seem fine. Another group walked down at the same time and were about half an hour quicker than us rappelling but we had way more fun.

20 ** Angels and Us Very Good Trad 83m Gara Gorge Ben Vincent
Fri 25th Jul '14

A very good first pitch. I found the finger crack crux pretty pumpy. We only did the first pitch before 'forgetting' where the second pitch went. With fading light we were forced to make up our own exit. Must get back and do the Angles and Us second pitch proper.

Pretty poor bolt placement, but the way it climbs makes up for it. Tough for a 20.

A real gem of a climb, gets thinner as you go higher - thankfully the top arrives before the crack closes. Worth the blackberry battle to get there!

We thought we did a first ascent, only to find out years later that it had been done by two of my previous climbing partners while I was living in Melbourne. We probably did a different series of pitches after the crux pitch.

Richard must have had his weet-bix the day he sent this. A great route, jams, laybacks, flexy-flakes and techy moves. I found the crux move through the roof staunch and possibly harder than 19. If it's jamming practice you're after then this is certainly a good route to get it from. Tape would be useful for the roof.
