24 *** The Gommernator

Wow! Just amazing! Such quality moves throughout the whole 25m climb. I rate most things as very good but this definitely gets a classic from me. It's the most sustained 24 I've encountered at Fred's and it's this that makes it so great. It has a definite crux that starts about 8 meters off the ground but after this the top is still pretty tricky, especially if you're pumped like I was! Absolutely stoked to get this second shot after only getting a third of the way up on my first go.

24 *** The Gommernator

Holy gosh. Probably shouldn't have chosen this for my first climb of the day! I was planning on putting the draws on and trying out the moves to warm up. However I had only tried working the first few hard moves about a third of the way up before I became insanely pumped. At this point my arms refused to go on so I came down.

I'm not sure why I'm logging this. Perhaps one day when I can do it I can look back here and be proud of my progress. Thought I'd scope this out for my next project but I was completely shut down. Couldn't even start this extension. Tried the start mantle like 30 times but couldn't do it or even see how to do it so pulled through. Couldn't do any of the next moves either and couldn't pull through that so came down. The rock is beautiful and it looks amazing, just too hard for me at the moment.

Second shot. Much the same as the first. Getting through the long pumpy start up to the crux clean but with no strength left to even try to start to move through the crux. Managing to start piecing together a sequence for these hard moves after a bit of resting.

25 ** Townsvillians

I'd top roped this climb months ago to clean it and I really didn't enjoy it at all. Usually I like every climb I do so I thought last week that I should give it a second chance. This time I absolutely loved every last bit of it. It is a lot easier and much more enjoyable on lead than top rope due to it being so steep. It does feel hard as it's long and pumpy with a long crux right at the top. It will definitely take a bit of working.

This climb feels a little different to the others in the area, it has a great little style all of its own. It is a fun technical face climb. It has lots of really enjoyable delicate moves and follows a nice line of lovely clean solid rock. Quite sequency I think, too hard to onsite for me.

25 ** Angel Dust

A steller climb with a really really awesome crux sequence that is short but bouldery, steep and shouldery. This type of crux is usually not my favourite but for some reason I found this climb super enjoyable. A tough climb to flash/onsite. Even after stealing all the beta it still took a long time during my first go to be able to start linking the short crux sequence.

Phoa!!! What a great line! Everybody visiting Frederick's Peak should do this. It is truly beautiful. By far the best climb I've been on here. An amazing steep and gently arching section of rock with lovely holds that are soft on the hands. Got right through most of the hard section first go but just didn't commit enough to a long juggy move right at the end of the crux.

Easy second shot after committing to the longish crux move and avoiding the crappy intermediates. For this crux being dynamic was much easier for me than trying to climbing static. Pretty sure that's a first for me.

This climb is great. It has a fun juggy start, then a short delicate slabby section, a section of lovely vertical face moves then a steep crux with a long move to finish. Wow. Fell off first shot at the very top. Tried to use a heap of intermediates that were slimey and crap. Was trying to climb statically and controlled which totally didn't work.

Horrible time for me as a leader, didn't have enough gear, route wasn't obvious, had to borrow bolts on the climb to the left, the move through the roof is horribly difficult for a "19", apparently my second thought it was pretty good though so I don't know.

Wow, such a great climb. Anyone visiting Townsville should not miss it. A fun and balancy arĂȘte with a spectacular view that provides a true feeling of exposure. Usually arĂȘtes terrify me but this one feels more fun and awe inspiring than scary. The moves are true to the grade but there's no need for uncertainty because you can see that the holds are good, you just need to commit to moving them. This climb offers really good photo opportunities too. I just love it.

A total heartbreaker. I fell at the very very top with the anchor literally in my face because I couldn't figure out how to clip. Should be easy on the second go now that I have a sequence. Really really good for the grade. Very interesting the whole way up. Top crux is quite technical and tough to onsite. A total bonus is the absolutely marvellous view of Townsville from the anchors. A real gem of a climb. Highly highly recommended.

Happy to have found a nice warm up. While no move is particularly hard the climb is still engaging. In what appears to me to be the Frederick's Peak style often it's hard to tell which holds are good or bad until you actually touch them so you have to climb slowly and with control. Good fun.
