The best climb on site: pumpy edges, then sequency crimps, then balancy to make the crest. The complete package. Should have at least done it cleanly on top rope . I'd want to have this dialed perfectly before trying for the lead (1st to 2nd clip would be very nervy).

14 Hell Fire Gully

Found this an awful lot harder than the 14 grade would suggest, more like a 17/18. Mainly due to the difficulty in setting protection, much of the climb was run-out to an unsettling degree. White-knuckle trad climbing at its finest. Lots of loose rock, as you'd expect. Our progress up the face was too slow, so we had to traverse out at the top of pitch two via the Prickle Traverse (this was mercifully a safe and straightforward walk back to the tourist trail). Next time.
