Looks like some rad climbs here... Is this area public yet ????

Adam replied 1 years ago

Just a bit of mocking around on the abseil... Portal Lookout in Glenbrook (Blue Mountains). Public..

Ben Jenga replied 1 years ago

Yeah the new area sounds fun. Sounds like a classic mountains arch.

Adam replied 1 years ago

Nice to have figured out what was the initial comment about. after 8 days... I'd better shut up before I make even bigger idiot of myself...

btw, hello Ben!

Jason Lammers replied 1 years ago

Is it new new Bell crag or is it in Glenbrook ?

Adam replied 1 years ago

Bell. Glenbrook is just a misunderstanding...

Ben Jenga replied 1 years ago

I will be back in two weeks, looking forward to getting stuck into so bluies sandstone.

seann osborn replied 1 years ago

i saw the bolts on that walking the other day looks fun, i have also discovered some boulders underneath it. i think people under play blue mountains boulder potential. I have 4 boulder project fields i'm working on in the VERY lower mountains atm. trying to finish them so i can make them public.

there is so much potential around glenbrook if people would take the time to look and develop.

Ben Jenga replied 1 years ago

Hell yeah lower mountains represent!!! Have you checked out the Z dimension Seann?

Lets just clear something up your new area is off the bells line yeah??

Ben Jenga replied 1 years ago

The penny just dropped... Hey Adam whats been happening? I just checked through your photos to figure out who it was. See you soon.

Adam replied 1 years ago

Not much Ben. Saw your photo on Driven some time ago and decided to give it a go. Nice line... Hope we will see some more development in Lower Mountains. Would be nice to have something closer to home... :)

Ben Jenga replied 1 years ago

Not the best route down there but a fun burn, nice to see you got the tick. You will have to check out the junkyard, less then an hours drive. Oh I have heard about a couple new lower mountains bouldering areas, we should check them out when I get back.

Jason Lammers replied 1 years ago

What are you guys talking about, Driven is the Hyper Classic of Sublime :-))

Adam replied 1 years ago

Driven was good for me. Hard crux, nice finish and few rests on the way. Any tips for a similar, "soft" 25? Something with grade 25 cruxes but plenty of rests in between... :) Would be nice to have at least one 25 done in my lifetime...

Leith D replied 1 years ago

So you're asking to do a grade 25 that is probably not grade 25? ;)

replied 1 years ago

Driven is 24. At best. :-)

Ben Jenga replied 1 years ago

Diamond jack, two little boulder problems with plenty of rests.. @ DF Ernest in Africa is pretty soft with one steep pull. @ the glen

Anyone of bundys 25's... :)

Jason Lammers replied 1 years ago

Ernest in Africa - there are harder 21s in the St Peters gym !!

Adam replied 1 years ago

"grade 25 that is probably not grade 25" is exactly what I'm after! :)

Well, if you can't do a "real" 25... then any will do... Would be nice to be able to tell my grandchildren one day that their pop used to do 25s... (even if it's only one, not even a "real" one... :)

Although I did one - Rubber Lover, but I had 2 rests. I got the moves straight away but I simply can't see myself doing it in one go...

John Smoothy suggested: Ashes to ashes, Kathy K, Loop the loop (all Blue Mountains). One day.... :)

Thanks for your suggestions Ben!

Jason Lammers replied 1 years ago

Kathy K is a good one, but a bit hard to siege.. You cant pull thru at the crux - so there will be lots of falls and fun... Madge is pretty easy, maybe try that 25 in the bottom cave at Mt Alex - its rad and pretty easy..

replied 1 years ago

Ashes to ashes is cool. I found loop the loop pretty tough and sustained.

Ben Jenga replied 1 years ago

I was thinking kathy K, it's easy but steep. Ashes is well cool but committing throw on the crux. Loop is tricking for a 5 as the crux is right at the top. Madge would be a good one as its short but pumpy. I don't think rubber lover is very good, it's easy to do to the last moves off a sit but hard to link it all. I know many people who had to project it for ages.

Don't get to hung up of hunting 5's, tick a couple more 24's and 25 will come naturally, it's just a matter of time.

David Nott replied 1 years ago

Your grandchildren will know your game if they're climbers, but they may be confused by grade conversions. I suggest you take up bouldering and use the over-inflated "add 21" theory after sending a V4 to impute that it's the equivalent of a 25.

replied 1 years ago

Atoms in action

Matt Brooks replied 1 years ago

Definitely the one at Mt Alex and any of Bens that don't involve you being 7 foot tall lol

Jason Lammers replied 1 years ago

When u sent Driven - Did you go to the top where the 2nd set of anchors is ? Do I need to get Damo to chop on of the bolts

replied 1 years ago

We certainly need to chop those lower anchors on Driven!

Adam replied 1 years ago

I did Driven going right to the top. Those lower anchors are a bit stupid.. Last move was quite a reach for me. Nearly lost it there... Very nice climb... Ben, another question then: any good 24s out there? .... :) (think - lots of rests in between hard sections... :)

Jason Lammers replied 1 years ago

Neils 24 down the other end is only 1 move then nice climbing to the top.

replied 1 years ago

San Pornando is soft.............

Ben Jenga replied 1 years ago

Sydney rose at boronia and Iona at the glen both easy. Pale yellow underwear at thomo's is softish if you can be dynamic. Hope to catch you for a climb sometime Adam

Ben Jenga replied 1 years ago

Also there is blackheathen, it's got 3 no hands rests but I won't call it an easy 24.

Adam replied 1 years ago

Thank you everyone! My list of climbs to do is growing... Now I only need time... (Ben, last Sat we did your Daffy at Supercrag. Awesome! :)

Glenn replied 1 years ago

The area is near bell (northside) not glenbrook.

Glenn replied 12 months ago

Yes this area is public, the location should now be up...

Paul Thomson replied 12 months ago

I don't think San Pornando on Bentrovato is soft at 24. It's harder than Driven or the 24s in the Binary Cave.

replied 12 months ago

was it sandy......or baggy?......a few years ago someone told me it was 22. climbing today? come to mt vic and do Die Fox Die.

Paul Thomson replied 12 months ago

And a few years ago Psychopath was a 19, and Sydney rose was a 25. Now we call Psychopath a 17, and Sydney Rose the worlds softest 24.

And -although I know you've climbed San Pornando- Evan, I'm wondering if perhaps you are thinking of Survival Day in the Binary Cave.

replied 12 months ago

Nah, I dont remember that one, definately remember San Pornando. A guy named Russel Basset told me it was 22. Good climb. Not soft. Just kidding
