|Orangina (Neil's Project)
Small burly pitch on superb orange rock below the belay for East Coast Choppers (ie starts on the vegetated ledge). Left trending line on pumpy slimps. Grade 25?
|Fisho's Descent Area|
|23||★★ The Get Down||10m, 4|
|22||★ Limber Up
Rap from double BRs on small ledge to semi-hanging belay off single ringbolt (back it up with rap rope or clip 2nd bolt with long sling). Start with 5m of easy slab to diabolical roof move then easy jugs and finally a short compact section of pumpy steep pockets just left of easy crack.
FA: Neil Monteith, 22 May 2016
The easiest bolted escape route from the Fisho ledge. Climb first bolt of Walking on Sunshine, then mantle up onto small ledge on the left. Walk along it (clip bolt with long sling) then up long grey bolted wall which is surprisingly steep and pumpy. Att the top finish left of the last bolt. Belay off double RB on the 2nd ledge above the topout.

|21||★★ Ying Yang
About 30 mtrs past Orange wall locate the 2 rap bolts above a short orange wall about 10 mtrs high with bolts..(this is pitch 2) Continue rapping down clipping the bolts otherwise you WILL be in outta space...
The hanging belay is fairly out there so be confident with exposure..
Climb up and out over the roof (crux).. Falling here, it's best to be lowered down to start again.. Maybe carry prussics
FA: Rick Phillips & Sabine
|17||★ Sparrow Fart
About 50 mtrs past Orange wall heading North... locate the rap rings and rap down an arete to a nice stance and belay off 2 bolts..
