A few incredible lines including some classic trad on the big obvious orange wall you can see for miles! Be brave and leave the „social‟ crags of God No and Superbowl for a day and ckeck out these brilliant lines.

As for the Left Wing, continue another 50 metres or so until a huge slightly detached 4 metre high block is reached. The big orange left-facing wall of Heart of China is an obvious landmark.

Starts at the left end of the ledge/block. Brilliant.

FA: Grant Murray, 1992

From the right of the block climb past a bouldery lower section then a finish on huge jugs. Superb.

FA: Gary Lotter, 1991

The obvious crackline on the left of The Theatre, just right of Sweet Cousin Cocaine.

FA: Stewart Middlemiss, 1991

Stunning! Better than Lotters? In the middle of the face. Name written at base. The first bolt is very high but the climbing is super easy. Don‟t stray left at the top, just trust those feet and go!

FA: Mike Hislop, 1992

Climbs the scoop 5m right of BIKINI RED. Very poorly protected.

FA: Mike Hislop, 1992

Climbs the arete to the choss above

FA: Clive Curson, 1992

This is the leftmost route on the right wall of The Theatre. Climbs the corner. Fight your way through the choss at the top and avoid killing people below.

FA: Clive Curson, 1992

Just to the right of the major dihedral in The Theatre, a few metres left of HEART OF CHINA. Sparse gear.

FA: Stewart Middlemiss, 1991

CLASSIC!! Up the middle of the big left facing orange wall, via a leftwards trending line of cracks and jugs. One of the best trad lines at The Restaurant.

FA: Darryl Margetts & Martin Seegers, 1991

At the right end of the ledge, climb up a few moves, and right around the corner to under a roof (awkward 2nd clip out left). Opened at 25!

FA: Grant Murray, 1992
