P1 Only. Hidden gem that should have more stars and more repeats. Varied crack with plenty of fun jamming and even some wideness which I managed to body squeezed up. Great gear and a rap point to get down, what more could you want.

Impressive looking line! Bomber rock, plentiful gear (providing you have some big cams up high). Perfect jambs down low, then the higher you go the wider it gets. Super fun route!

2nd clean as one mega pitch. It was touch and go pulling around the arete especially with frozen fingers and toes. Cool bridging and finger locks. Looks more intimidating than it really is.

Yet another classic to add to the day of classic routes! If it wasn't for Jason's chalk, draws and everyones encouragement I could not have flashed this...Man its on after the 2nd bolt. Awesome sustained face climbing with several cruxy sequences.

This send made my wkd. After been spat off this over a yr ago I was excited and nervous to be back. Sent placing pro eod yippee. Grateful the rain held off for the crux, though the finish was rather exciting. Crux still felt HARD but so rewarding.

Super awesome crack route with some wideness in the middle that I found super challenging. You don't need anything smaller than a #0.75 camalot but make sure you have two or more #4s and a #5. Absolutely perfect rock in the lower half!

Climbed as a mega pitch from the ground to the double bolt belay half way up pitch four and 8m of rambling from the very of the cliff. The most fun I've had on a rock climb in ages!!! If you do it in this way, which I totally totally recommend, it is probably the best trad route in the Greater Blue Mountains area! Amazingly clean and varied corner crack climbing at a sustained grade for almost 75m!! You can have this amazing single pitch adventure with just one 80m rope which can then be used to do two bolted raps to get back down. I took a hilariously enormous rack (even broke out the gear sling) but you might get away reasonably comfortably with triple cams, a bunch of wires and a million quick draws!

Basically an onsight placing all the gear but there had been talk of the route all day and so i had a bit of an idea of what the crux entailed. In true form though everyone else's tall person beta was of no help to me! Really great climb but insanely cruxy. Absolutely eats wires and if you had a double rack of them you almost wouldn't need to bother with cams.

First route of the day. Really awesome finger crack after the less than ideal start. Some of the loose seeming blocks are quite scary but after you turn the lip it is totally dreamy. Don't bail left to the bolts at the ledge because some of the more exciting moves are above that and for the full tick you need to go to the tree anchor!

Went up it at the end of the day in the light rain with no beta to get the draws back. Truly awesome varied and improbable slabbing with a bit of spice added by the bolt spacing. I learnt that runout wet slabs are hard and scary.

2nding Emil Mandyczewsky . An interesting premise, but not so good in reality. Caked with moss, average-to-poor rock (lots of teetering blocks), poor carrots, and average fiddly gear. Has all the makings of a face epic, but was more type-2 fun, in reality. Glad Emil was the one to lead it and not me

P1 only, finished up Flashbacks. Lost my head on the Onsight at the crux struggling with sandy holds (I removed a huge block from a key jam) and dirty footers. About 6m of great climbing (the end of the traverse and the laybacking) and lots of sandy junk otherwise.

Linked the 1st 3 pitches as a giant 65m megapitch of dreamy, sustained corner-crack climbing. Became quite exciting (and moderately sketchy) with my relatively limited double-rack as I got higher and higher. A contender for one of the most "consistently good" crack multis in the Greater Blue Mountains area.

Exciting in the intermittent rain. Would've been a very different proposition without Jason McCarthy and Jenna Brady 's chalk on it. Flash from the 3rd bolt up (I slipped off a damp hold going for the 3rd bolt, lowered back to the ledge, and went to the top from there... skipping the tree start). Similar to Barton's effort stylistically, but more sustained, intense, thinner, and demanding. Deserves more traffic.

No-beta flash, but Jason McCarthy had kindly equipped and chalked up the route for us. Doesn't look like much from the ground, but climbs brilliantly, and with some spicy spaced bolting that is just on the right side of sanity. Very technical, varied, wandery, sustained slabbing. Reminded me of The Belles, The Belles at Railway Cliffs (which is a good thing!)

Immaculate crack (barring a single loose block in the lower 3rd), though very cruxy. The headwall in particular is oodles of easy fun. I gunned up the start and the finish of this, but stalled out for an eternity at the crux, up-climbing and down-climbing before committing. When I finally did it was easy, and rad. I enjoyed this more than TDM, though its not as sustained.

Flash placing gear. 8m of brilliant and sustained thin/finger crack (that I found quite challenging), and lots of "pretty good" crack climbing. We really should trundle those loose blocks in the bottom 1/3rd to make it an even better route. I thought this was tougher than Tranzister (though not as good).
