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!

Some good protection is available down lower, but the top of the flake sounds hollow as a drum. Pure pleasure after getting that first bolt clipped.

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

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.

Tried this on lead to test my hard man credentials. Failed. There's some good climbing here, but it's not good enough to warrant the genuine risk you're putting yourself in to find it. I reckon there's a good reason we don't bolt them like this any more.

You don't get many long multi-pitch routes in WA, but this is serious fun and a great day out. It packs a lot of variety into six pitches, and despite some decent runouts it's good holds all the way. Take a friend or two, a full rack of trad gear, and have an adventure. Expect 1.5h walk in, 7/8h climbing, and 1h walk down,

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.

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.
