28 Olympus

Now superseded by 'Following A Feltch'. The original boulder problem start. 1st bolt is for belayers benefit. Stick clip 2nd, then boulder up and right to a small jug under roof, then span right to gain a sidepull and move into Kiss My Brain. Continue over the roof and finish directly up easy headwall.

27 Japetus Extension

A boulder problem traverse link up into Japetus Direct Finish. Start (sit) left of base of Olympus - dyno rightwards and climb across cave to juggy traverse that leads underneath Sardine etc to base of Japetus. Continue up that route. Best done with a top-rope clipped in prior to embarking on the route itself. Basically a V5/6 problem into an existing 23.

Adelaide Morialta Far Crag
28 Locust Abortion Technician

Start as for Barad Dur. Once on the ledge step left so that you are below and 1m left of Barad Dur's crackline and climb directly up, staying within a metre of the crack. If you're on route the first bolt of Pizazz can be clipped prior to heading up but then you are relying on side runners in Barad Dur.

Adelaide Morialta The Boulder Bridge
27 Grurper's Skateboard

Starts up Geronimo's Cadillac as far as the second bolt then goes up and a little left from there: a couple of fine vertical crimps off to the left and then straight over the bulge to grab a quartz knob, swings up and there is a nice sequence of dynamic moves on the lip of the bulge reminiscent of a skateboarding move.

From the skateboard move the route continues straight up (small crystal finger pocket) and a tricky sequence at the top, sustained until the last move. The line avoids all the holds on Muesli and Extra G.

FA: Roger DuBois & John Nitschke, 2005

Sport 3
Adelaide Norton Summit The Cave
27 Crossroads Direct Finish

Not particularly popular and somewhat contrived. Still worth it, particularly if you have route fitness (crux at the top). Follows Crossroads to the roof, then breaks right past underclings to gain the thin letterbox slot in the hanging headwall. Choose a sequence (dynamic or static option) then finish as for North Terrace Stroll. Extended draws for both headwall bolts are mandatory.

FA: Craig Ingram, 2006

27 Strolling

Once considered to be 'the 29 project' - that was until Mick waltzed up it during his Summit love affair - grading it 7b+ (26) - at a time when he was doing 28's in two or three tries. Takes The Stroll to the roof, then traverses left into large underclings to gain the Crossroads RHV crux, and finishes as for that. Previously unrecorded. Could be 28.

FA: Mick Wells, 7 Feb 2013

27 Evolution of an Hourglass

Start up Crossroads, go into The Stroll at its rest point, then prior to main (top) roof - traverse right into KPDM. Finish as for this.

FA: JayT, 2006

Sport 23m

Takes the right-hand major roof weakness. Start as for NTS and follow it to the blue 'biner. Keep on track heading left but then kick back right through the overlap to the lip jug. Make a hard slab move to reach the break, then blast straight through the main roof via the obvious line (fixed 'biner). Back jump from the last bolt to clean.

KPDM Direct, slightly harder than KP, but easier than IP! Takes North Terrace Stroll to the fixed biner (2nd bolt) then fires directly up through the post-crux moves of Intellectual Property and rejoins KPDM at it's 3rd bolt. Consistent!

Adelaide Onkaparinga Snakelands
27 Fully Involved

Grade 20 slab to a V7 boulder problem. The long awaited solution to the 27-year-old open project of Burning Down the House direct finish. Climb the original route to its single bolt loweroff (grade 20 to here), then reverse a move and step right to continue up to a large jug at the base of the steep wall. Big moves through the roof lead to disappointing slopers at the base of the short hanging slab, then a further problematic sequence to top out.

27 Chain Smoker

Emphysema is the next step... More sustained than CDS with a much more logical finish. Take Emphysema to its crux, then instead of moving right under the final bolt, move left via gastons into the very finish of CDS. More sustained than CDS but easier than Emphysema.

Sport 25m, 9
28 Emphysema

‘Emphysema’. The direct result of the addiction to ‘Marlboro Red’. Climb ‘Marlboro Red’ to the 7th BR. Head directly up face to the start of the roof for a brief rest. Use pinches and crimps to fight through blank bulging roof clipping 2 more bolts to gain final head wall. (Extend last draw past lip of the roof to minimise rope drag)

27 The Art of Seeing

First scoped in 2004 and dismissed, then revisited after 10 years. Up easy wall 4m left of the start to Stalagmite Addiction past two bolts to mantle onto small ledge. Undercling then reach right to slopers (4th BR on face) and up the blank wall/corner to gain a good break under the roof. From here take first weakness out main roof to 'the bowl hold' on the lip. Continue through tricky terrain to good jug several moves above. An easier section through the final rooflet gets you to the chain just below cliff top. Take 10 draws (two for the chain) and back clean.

27 Top Shelf Material

A 60 move marathon that tests all of your skills. A limestone like 24 leads into a technical slab traverse, which then morphs into a brutal double roof. Follow Stalagmite Addiction, bypass its anchor and move left across slab. Take 2nd roof weakness (skip clipping the Silk Rd BR), and follow the line to the top of the cliff.

The obvious diagonal line rising out of the water at the mouth of the cave. Begin right at the point where the line meets the water and continue traversing and progressing diagonally upwards with the line until you are able to move up shortly after the line finishes and up 'Frogman'.

Feet are difficult to find at times (underwater) and also following the line below the overhang.

Hard to grade, but it's hard, and even harder when a moderate swell is lifting you then pulling you back down.
