An excellent line, but: sandbagged, much? The first pitch is much harder than the grade suggests. Second pitch is very pleasant, and much easier.

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.

The first, second and fourth pitches make this a good slab route, the third and the topout prevent it from being very good. Pitch one, the starting flake with big layback and reachy traverse was the highlight. Take a couple of large cams for it!

Great climbing on good rock, with plenty of opportunity to protect the moves. Each of the two traverses adds some spice. The third "pitch" is a formality, but it's not as though you can avoid it. Highly recommended for a short multi-pitch adventure.

Has to be one of the best cracks in Perth, well worth the bush-bash. Got part-way on lead, but the crux is a hard one to be placing gear through. Pure pleasure on toprope. Left some skin behind, plus an unrecoverable stopper above the first move (it should be bomber, forever).

A route with very little to recommend it. First viable protection is 10m up, second is another 15m higher, then you scramble to the top of the first pitch. If you're going to put yourself at that much risk, the climb better be worth it. Second pitch is a 5m joke. Skip this one.
