3rd shot. Not good a roofs, but was heaps of fun. Thought we were on 1080 at first, but by the time we figured out we weren't, it was a bit late, and 1080 didn't look as good anyway.

Got me swearing a bit. Long, intricate crux up to 3rd bolt, then came off twice trying to get established on slab. Really good fun.

Just the one shot at the end of the day. Really fun with distinct sections of climbing. The crimpy finish is a bit of a killer though.

24 *** Dave's Arete Mega Classic Sport Golden Bay
Wed 12th Feb '14

Had a quick go since Jed put the draws on. Crux start leads into pretty easy climbing (no harder than 20), but sustained with no really good rests. Perfect for gym climbers, unless they don't like taking whippers! Great fall :-)

23 *** High Voltage Very Good Sport Golden Bay
Thu 6th Feb '14

2nd shot. Definite crux turning the bulge, but the top isn't as slabby as it looked from below either!

21 * The Voice of the Beehive Don't Bother Sport Golden Bay
Sat 8th Feb '14

Cruxy, and looks like a large hold or two was recently removed from the cruxy section...

Climbed 'Jimmy the torn...' to get to base of arete and continued up. Only 19 (or 18) from the ledge. Original 21 trad start about 8m to the right and grown over.

2nd shot. I don't really know boulder grades, but it didn't feel very hard.

22 *** Rawhide Very Good Sport 5 Golden Bay
Thu 13th Feb '14

Just the one go as a warmup. Went the wrong way trying to turn lip and was a bit too committed to reverse it. Nice rest after that though, and the slab is good fun too.
