Pulled the top flake almost a cm away from the rock but it didn't brake somehow, be careful!

Was pretty happy to get up this. Dug deep and recalled some distant beta memory from the recesses.

Mucked around on the start of this looking for an extension. Seemingly possible. Sasha could do it.

You don't just waltz up this thing. Had a couple of goes and thought I save my arm and leg skin. Still love it.

Benji found an additional little hold which made the last move more achievable (and at least a grade easier).

This thing is really good. Got very close on my last attempt but chipped-off a wee bit off the key footer. There's still plenty on it though

A nice alternate finish with a very different style from the start.

If you love whole body bouldering then you'll love this one. A burly finish to boot.

This is actually good, you just have to be very selective on your top-out holds.

A gum tree growing out of granite, crystally jugs, laybacks, over-sized quartz crystals chicken head crimps and a rounded flaring off-width crack, what is not to love about this one?!

Iso delivers again! This thing is very spanned. Benji had the beta worked out first but got his feet tied up. Cool moves for a short problem.

A short punchy number. Use the direct mantle as opposed to the exit R to squeeze out some extra climbing. The hidden crimper-pocket is a delight!

Took me some time to remember how to get establihed on this thing. Once I got the start I was able to get the remainder finished. First boulder problem at Gara in over 7 months and a doozie at that.

V4 Quickdraw roof

Headed for here as it was probably the only dry problem nearby. Raining properly now but worked and resent it in a couple goes. Decided to leave the pads here to get headlamps and come back and see if there was any problems underground in the cave, then got distracted by cold pizza in the car, then by crawling through storm drains, and then the crew turned up for a caving trip and it was only once I was home that I discovered we'd left the pads there!

One of the few problems that offered some shelter from the rain. Good to get this one and with a surprisingly smoother mantle than usual.
