Epicly good route. Climbing days don't get much better than this. Paul and I rapped the falls with a 200m static (70m left over) and climbed out in a couple hours. The walk in was quite easy, but we were thinking of doing a couple routes in one day. We stayed left of the obvious ledgey chossy route (11?) and had about 3-4 significant cruxes on the route. Only about 15 total meters of loose rock, generally good stuff and pro where you need it. The hardest sections for us were getting to the ledge mentioned for the belay if p2-3. Then the steep juggy section into a sweet 3m handcrack at the first 10m of pitch 3. And then a good but hard finger crack (arcing left) about 40m from the top and the final topout (definitely not the crux of the route we took as the guide sugests) with some blank pro and mega exposure. Great day. But more like 16-17 than 14.

Really happy to finally get on this route. I think I first looked at Dangars 10 years ago and imagined what it would be like. Well, it was great and certainly delivered. Really good clean climbing in parts (particularly on P1-P3), but plenty of loose blocks (P3-P5), and a few chossy teetering towers here and there and we even a couple of passing showers thrown in the mix to keep us on our toes. Pretty good wire placements throughout despite the routes reputation, need to be careful with cam placements though this rock spits them out pretty easily. Probably a few sections that warranted a stiffer grade (16-17), but I guess that the nature of a choose your own adventure, slightly wandering route. Linked P1 & P2, seconded P3, linked P4 & P5. Climbed on twin 60’s. Good times

Second burn after I watched Ben Vincent unlock the whole traverse. Was a bit sloppier this time, got dyno only on second try like before, was a little pumped at the birds nest and didn't recover much. Got onto the crux hold, feet need to be way further around

Felt great, hit the dyno perfect on the first time for the first time (instead of slapping, fall, catch, re-adjust and go again) and then moved to the roof jugs statically. Had an explore through the next 4 or so moves before splashing down

Jumped on to warm up, was a little blase and almost fell off a meter in. Also dabbed the water as I rounded the crux. Should Dab be a legit DWS tick type? I guess it doesn't benefit you like it would touching a pad, but it is also a gauge of quality so why not?

A nice find by Al. He was all over It until a crucial foot went astray and turned a tight gaston into inspiration for the name of the climb.Under the rooflet I ended up heading left where Al went right. Scope for an alternate finish out right into M.E.T.ext. Nice and fingery with small feet.

Love this dyno. That feeling when you launch high with total concentration off great pockets, only to miss the finish hold and free fall backwards into the cool watery depths. First shot is always a warm/psych up. I landed a left on the finish hold on my second attempt but couldn't stick it. At least it feels like it'll go now. Haven't been entirely convinced until now.
