Description

Just past the Swiss Bloc.

Access issues inherited from The Gap

The Park Ranger has stated that no climbing is allowed in the area on weekends and public holidays. Many lives have been lost and they don't want non-climbers putting themselves at risk wandering away from the lookouts.

Sit start avoiding the low rock for feet. Up with jugs. A tad awkward.

Sit start, move up to the jug flake and follow it left to top out. Nice moves on good holds.

Sit start as for 'Being Sane in Insane Places' but instead of traversing left top out straight up.

Sit start with the flake and smeary feet. Tricky first move and finish straight up.

Sit start. Up using tufa holds.

Stand start with obvious jug on the right. Follow the undercling leftwards to a jug on the corner. Switch around and finish up the rising sloper traverse 'Overvalued Ideation', avoiding exiting the slopey rail early. Pumpy and weird.

Originally opened 24 Feb 2019, a key crux foot hold broke off making the original sequence impossible. Reopened 5 Feb 2020 with a new harder first crux.

The midstart to 'A Delusion of Grandeur'. Start matched on the jug on the corner and traverse the rising sloper rail left (avoiding exiting the slopey rail early) to top out. Slopey and weird, but fun none-the-less.
