19 Crisis Master

Straightforward, until the vertical drill hole/crack at the finish. Pumpy, technical laybacking to finish. Good times.

Sport 25m, 6 Boya Quarry Very Good Mon 3rd Feb 2014

Short, but wicked good laybacking until the lip. Plus a good kneebar!

Tricky second bolt is the crux, 8m runout after the fourth adds excitement.

I might have enjoyed this more if it hadn't started raining midway. Nevertheless, some good moves.

Very good fun, this. Couple of tense, slippery parts - it's well worth slinging the tree in the gully prior to setting the next clip.

Decent enough climb, crimpy finish.

Good holds and feet. Felt easier than 17, I might have strayed a bit far right.

Nice line. A somewhat tricky stretch between the 2nd & 3rd bolt.

Well (over?) protected and enjoyable multi-pitch slab climbing, though without many distinguishing features. A fun day out.

Got up with plenty of shouted beta. This is the best of what I climbed today, possibly of the whole crag. Remarkably consistent in difficulty over the entire route.

Sport 15m Midgegoroo National Park Very Good Wed 21st Sep 2016
20 Modern Tactics

Pinchy, balancy and a little desperate. You wouldn't wanna slip while clipping the 2nd or 3rd bolts - decent chance of bottoming out. Be sure of your skills.

Sport 25m, 4 Boya Quarry Good Wed 22nd Jan 2014
19 Aquaterra

Has some interesting and chancy moves in the bottom half. Not ashamed to admit that having the beta made me feel a bit braver.

- with Kym Campbell

I liked this. Slopers on the last move don't feel like much, but they're sufficient for the task.

Fine enough, for slab.

Eh. Quicker way to get up than walking around the path.

Sport 26m, 8 Denmark Average Thu 25th Mar 2021
22 Shut 'em Down

Wild contortions to get through the overhang, then efficient moves to scale the arete. It's pretty doable, once you know how.

- with Kym Campbell
Sport 12m, 5 Mountain Quarry Classic Mon 16th Feb 2015
23 Stolen Glory

The crux requires finesse to get through, not to mention a couple of serious crimps. After that, it changes up into a slab requiring balance and nerve. Recommended!

A good route, with one very nervy clip (the fourth) and a strenuous crux move straight after (took a couple of tries to work it out). The rest is straightforward.

Very good climb. Some delicate footwork required to perch on thin crimps.

Extremely strenuous and sustained climb; heck of a workout for the arms. Note there is a ledge you could play tennis on for a rest, half way.

Not exactly a clean ascent, but I got up. Crimpy, technical, and highly entertaining. Classic.

The first pitch is fairly straightforward, the second is a lot more challenging (hats off to Kym). Second carrot on the 2nd pitch (after the hanger) is in a butt-clenchingly high spot.
