One of them's probably The Vice, which would change the game a bit!
that one i know is in there - first route or last it's probably the point where you know if you'll succeed
Kelly's Overhang will be one of them too. :o)
I've got my copy of OPR kicking about somewhere, if someone doesn't beat me to it I'll have a look when I've made a cuppa...
Ok, starting from the North, here goes:
The Vice (which is also Jamming Test no. 4)
Right Hand Tower
Cave Gully Wall
Flying Buttress Direct
FWIW, I did the Vice last year and really enjoyed it. (I am a bit odd, admittedly, and some would say I cheated by taping up.) There are others on that list that look tougher to me. It'd be a very impressive challange to do that lot in a day! :o)
I've done neraly all of them, many of them as regular solos (others I've fallen off or course!). The only one I have avoided and never intend to try apart from The Vice (which I would kind of like to do one day, but I doubt I'll ever be in the mood) is Tower Chimney. No ta.
I seconded that last year. (My climbing partner is a bit odd too.)
It didn't go well. I was a bit too engrossed to notice at the time, but apparently big Ron was watching from the plantation and had a good laugh at my appalling style. :o)
bl00dy hell - wish i hadn't asked :-)
certainly would be a good day!
tower chimney's not too bad - you just need a big enough cam and to face the right way. now is it left or right...
I thought it was bloody desperate and I'm normally fairly adept at more 'traditional' routes!
