Peak Head West Face
20 18 Baylac Direct - with Kym Campbell Trad 96m Very Good
An excellent line, but: sandbagged, much? The first pitch is much harder than the grade suggests. Second pitch is very pleasant, and much easier.

 
15 Albatross - with Kym Campbell Trad 110m Very Good
A lovely line of mild trad. Second pitch is the best, but it's all a good time.

I enjoyed this more the time it wasn't pissing down with rain

 
14 Jaundice - with Kym Campbell, Adam Trad 8m Good
Short, but great for practising cam placements.

 
17 Wishbone - with Kym Campbell, Adam Mixed trad 15m, 5 Average
Kinda slabby

Good warmup.

 
Wed 3rd Oct 2018 - Disappointment Rock boulder
V2 Tricky slab Boulder 4m Very Good
Took me a couple of tries. Best of the problems here, assuming that you like slab. Bring a crash pad or risk a snapped ankle.

No gear placements, no rope drag. Superb rock and an atmospheric line. Sublime.

18 Entertainer - with Kym Campbell Trad 20m Classic
Sustained and oh so satisfying. This is why we visit. A sensational route.

Exposure, much? You're going into space if you fall off the second pitch. And that roof chimney on the third! Fantastic route.

The iconic Arapiles route. An amazing line with some commitment required on the upper two pitches. Beta: take two bolt plates and some large cams.

 
Sun 5th Nov 2017 - Arapiles
Atridae Agamemnon Area
11 Agamemnon - with Kym Campbell Trad 40m Classic
Done as one pitch. And what a pitch: solo the squeeze chimney to start, then stem your way up the chasm for the rest. Perfect friction all the way, and a cheeky little run-out at the end to add spice.

A completely superb lineup for these two routes. Second pitch had a surprisingly bouldery start, and that overhang on the third!

Central Gully Central Gully Left Golden Fleece Wall
15 Beautiful Possibilities - with Kym Campbell, Joe Hewitt Trad 30m Very Good
An absolute cracker. Delicate, careful moves needed for the start of this one. Good protection, but not obvious - you have to think about it. My pitch of the day, for sure.

Some tasty exposed bulges to pull through on the second pitch. Shame that it wasn't a little more like that all the way.

15 Toccata - with Kym Campbell

Trad 50m Very Good
Great fun. First pitch is the harder, more insecure one with some non-obvious moves. Second pitch is a classy box chimney and much more straightforward.

 
14 Tremulo - with Kym Campbell Trad 25m Very Good
A fine little single pitch. In Perth this would be a must do at any crag, over here it's a bit eclipsed by all the other classics nearby.

Trad 42m Very Good
A fine start to our day. Easy start up the crack, then a gripping bouldery exposed move out onto the face, then lovely moves up the face to finish. You Victorians are keeping all the good stuff for yourselves.
