Routes

Add route(s) Add topo Resequence Bulk edit
Grade Route
1
V4 * The Small Blank Wall Boulder 3m

Left of the descent gully, below the tree is an intense little one-mover. Up the center of this little wall. The tree root is off!

2
V2 The Offwidth Boulder

Too wide to jam, too narrow to chimney, thrutch your way up instead

3
V2 The Offwidth Arete Boulder 4m

Climb the R arete of The Offwidth Crack by its R side

4
V3 3 Boulder

Climbs the territory just left of 'The Offwidth'

5
V4 R *** The Blank Wall Boulder

The testpiece of the wall. 'Required' qualification for the Lindfield Hardman badge. Scene of chip/fill shenanigans in the past. Classic.

6
V4 R * 5 Boulder

To the right of She-Oak Crack is a thin seam. Climb it

7
V0 * She-Oak Crack Boulder 5m

Classic, the crack system left of the blank wall is a good outing for almost anyone.

8
V0 to V0+ 7 - Diagonal Cracks Boulder 6m

As the name suggests, the diagonal crack system leading out of the start of She-Oak Crack

9
V2 7a Boulder 6m

Continue directly up the slanting crack line (instead of traversing L)

10
V3 8 Boulder

There's an obvious pocket below the traverse of Problem #7. Use this to gain the break.

11
V5 * 9 Boulder

Starting on the slopey crimp, attack the arete of 'The Golden Triangle'

12

Adds a move to GT by sit-starting with left hand pocket, right hand layaway

13
V0 11 Boulder

Corner left of the arete, moving up on good holds to escape or finish direct.

14

steep stuff on the left edge of the wall

17

Step across the descent gully to The Small Blank Wall, downclimb The Offwidth then traverse low across the wall to the top of The Golden Triangle and step across to The Overhang. This is probably the crux of The Lindfield Traverse.

Alternatively traverse high across The Blank Wall and drop down at the end which is much easier.
