Not worth the effort. A few metres of okay rock/climbing surrounded my lots of crud. Ending up off-route at the start didn't do much to add to the experience.

2nd shot. Went for the true onsight, had a bit of a battle putting on the crux draw, then fell off the only hard move on the route. Very flashable with a bit of beta for the crux. Would be 24 elsewhere, or probably gr23 for "the point" (based on the routes put up in the same era). Short, but punchy and awesomely exposed. Bring a few cams (0.3, 0.5) for the finale. Replaced the poxy belay sling.

DWS anyone? An epic experience starting with a 20 minute search for the carrot (we rapped off the boulders and only found it at the end of the day). This route is absolutely wild; an overhanging arete with a 50m drop to the crashing Tasman with southern right whales swimming below. Pat lead the way and cleaned up the holds, then I snuck in to get the flash. We finished up a flaring fingercrack on the right side of the arete, probably not the full tick.

Maybe even classic! The way this pushes you out onto seemingly blank rock is wild! Climbed on Pat's gear

20 Who Killed Schrodinger's Cat?

Of our three ascents, no one found the secret pocket that makes this a 20! Felt like 23; harder, more laybacking, and better than Turbo-Curare

Should've read the guidebook! Wandered all over the place trying to find decent gear and easy moves. The finishing diagonal rail looked fun.

Holly exposure! And crazy run out at the end! Fantastic position. Have to head out and repeat it again soon! felt easy for 25. Blew the onsight at upper crux then cruzed it 2nd shot after 5min rest.
