Wow, this is a really really great route!! It took me quite a while to figure out how to do the crux at the third draw but now I have some beta sorted and I'm totally in love with the moves!! It's a scoopy and steep little section which makes any sequence kinda bouldery and just so fun! I don't think the top is a give away either. The holds are good but sometimes a bit smooth and sometimes a bit off balance unless you really sort your body position, makes it pumpy! Keen as to get back on this!!

Just one go today but excitingly lots of progress made. Managed to sort out how to get to the last bolt and so also got to clip the anchors for the first time. Turns out these last few moves aren't too bad at all, just a bit heady for me initially. I did fall at the crux too but it felt really fine after just one quick second off. Knowing now that I can actually do the top will really help me commit now, I think!

Definitely worth the time! A really fun mixed route with good gear, good rock and in a great location. It never gets too hard for the grade but there are a couple of nice interesting sections. Could be done as an awesome single 50m pitch but we did not have enough bolt plates. We also didn't have enough extendable draws so we had a lot of rope drag by the time we reached the belay 35m up and 15m from the top. Whether you do it as a single pitch or in two quite a few extendable draws will help.

So glad we went and did this climb today, it is a total must do in Townsville! Such nice rock with such great climbing in such a lovely location makes this a true classic in my opinion. All 3 pitches are fun and total quality. There's not a dirty, dull or dodgy moment in the whole 50meters. Would be mega classic if pitch one and three were longer but only because it was so good it left me wishing for more! Go do it, for sure. Liam lead P1&3 and me P2.

I really love this climb and find it is the perfect warm up for me. I don't think it looks like the most amazing route but it really does climb super super well. Even after climbing it over 15 times it still feels a little bit tricky each time as there's so many options for holds in the crux and I always seem to use a different assortment of them each go. Fun times!
