/ Anyone climbed at Froggatt Edge?
Thought we'd drop in there for a day's cragging since we were passing. I know it's not Castle Hill but it's not really a climbing holiday and it'll make a change from Three Pebble Slab.
From the photos in the UKC logbook it looks like pleasant pocket pulling. What kind of grades would Terror Incognito (18), Monsterpiece Theatre (20) and Mr Daddy Longlegs (22) translate to? Are NZ grades comparable with Australian (Arapiles, say) grades? Actually, I'm probably remembering South African grades, in which case they should be achieveable.
yes we have climbed at Froggatt (NZ version) and even put up a route there!
To call it pleasant pocket pulling would be a reasonable generalisation, but the pockets can be very sharp and the rock can be very steep. However, the lines are very good. Terror Incognito at 18 is about HVS and quite pumpy at that. Great line though.
We're booked in at Bryce's in one of their cabins. We'll need to hire gear too (not taking a pile of gear halfway round the world for a day's cragging), but this all seems to be under control.
Bryce is grumpy but a good guy. Say hello to him from Mat and Cat and he might even smile at you!
Enjoy, we miss being out there.

Thanks everyone, I'll report back!
