Grade Route

The first route when descending from Picnic Rock to the base of Yaganing Slabs. Climbs the black slab via small sharp crimpers covered in black dry algae. More appealing than it sounds and a good route. 7 bolts to DBB. First 2 bolts are very close and could do with rationalising.

FA: Kate Swain & Neil Gledhil, May 2015

4m right of Liquorish Slab. Boulder up then step slightly right at the first bolt. Up past 4 more bolts right of a very shallow water runnel. DBB/lower off above right edge of mossy ledge.

FA: Conrad Slee, Peter Thomas & Neil Gledhill, May 2015

The third route from the picnic rock. Dishes out the spankings. Pleasantly cruxy climbing just right of Lash Me Gently. 4 bolts with an easy runout near the top to the same belay as Lash Me Gently. Easier if you are under 30 and wear sensible socks.

FA: Peter Thomas, Conrad Slee & Neil Gledhill, May 2015

It could be 19 left of the bolts or 16 right of the bolts or something else entirely. Climb it how it pleases you. 4 bolts, left of a very thin white streak.

Shares a DBB/lower off up high, with Schizophrenic, Narrogin Line, Project Mac, Hakea Penance, and Clemency. 10-12m of climbing then 10m plus of easy slabbing to the anchor.

FA: Chris Swain, Kate Swain & Neil Gledhill, Nov 2014

Not too much suffering thanks to 36Volts of Bosch goodness. Nice face climbing, joining Schizophrenic near the top.

3 bolts between NL and HP. Then join either route for the finish. Technical and somewhat height dependant. Cruxy.

Not named after the 18th century Baron Hake. Named after the spikey bushes at the base. Sustained and satisfying, leading to atonement at the top.

Somewhat of a relief. Early development sketches had it pencilled in as a crag test piece, but it yielded to the combined power of the Swains at a more moderate grade.

Climbs the obvious shallow, scooped corner. A fine outing up the slab loaded with dazzling pegmatite jugs. Climbs past 3 bolts to common DBB/lower off with NM. A crag classic.

FA: Chris Swain, Kate Swain & Neil Gledhill, Nov 2014

Just right of Pegmatitic. Climb on large white crystals past the mica “fin” sticking out between the 1st and 2nd bolts (looks like wood!), then directly up the crux bulge at top. 4FH to DBB.

FA: Ross Weiter & Ruth Murdie, Oct 2015

Starts left of the tree growing out of the rock just off ground level. Grade 16 according to Mac Mcarthur and Francois Le Bril. There is no “right” way to get to the first bolt… or the second. But you will find the crux near the third bolt. DBB lower off. Enjoyable.

FA: Neil Gledhill & Kate Swain, May 2015

Starts right of the tree. Reachy boulder problem start (for a grade 13!) takes you to pleasant slabbing. 4bolts to DBB lower off shared with Bril-liant Slab.
