Rock is a bit scungy and feels like some of the holds in the scoop might just pull off but the climbing is fun. Bring a wire for the slot before the bolt and another for the first bolt because the neck of the bolt was very fat

Good, sustained climbing that deserves to be more popular. Either climb agent orange or cactus pitch 1. Needs 10 bolt brackets and a number 5 dmm wire. move right at the second bolt for the bulge as it is desperate if you stay in line.

Phenomenal climbing. though the start was a bit tricky (one wire and 2 cans before the first bolt needed extenders) and the bolts are sportingly placed. Keen to get on the sharp end next time, incredible route (rapped down on a 70m)

Well this was essentially a sport climb for me, i think i got two cams and a tri-cam in and then relied on the carrots for the rest making for a though provoking and very run out start to the day. I had trouble getting the wires to seat in the first section so wrote of many good placements later on, my inexperience showing i guess, but a fantastic climb and an absolutely stunning view from the top. Sean trailed a 60m rope so we could rap off.

part 3 of 4 of our epic adventure back to the campsite. rope knot got stuck in the crack at bottom of last pitch. I think it was after 8pm at this point anchored the stuck end on a tree and used a rope grab with a tensioned line on the other side (directional cam in the bottom while one of the guys pulled tension) to avoid something like this it might be advisable for the last abseiler to pull the joining knot down when they get to bottom of last pitch so the knot is past the tight crack before continuing.

other than that it was a good laugh

Excellent line. Nice move around the arete on pitch 2. We added one pitch to this climb, we went diagonally up left to meet another climbing party at the top of cactus. The rap down from top of cactus can be done on one 70m rope and will, with stretch, JUST reach the next rap rings. 35m rap to ground from there.
