Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?* E2 5c
[Trad Climbing in a Sport venue?, 2 kb]16m.

Rockfax Description
Follow the corner then traverse the wall rightwards (pegs/bolts) to a lower-off. The direct finish up the groove is easier (E1 5b), but less enjoyable. With a few wires it feels about 6a+. © ROCKFAX

With gear/wires in situ. Couldn't be bothered with the proper trad experience. Nice route, feels airy and slightly adventurous/trad feel to it. Cool. 3 star

Really fun, but either make it a sport route, or a trad route! F6a+

Not really trad anymore, and not enough will power to not clip the bolts.. Good climbing all the same!

Found this fairly steady. Not sure about the grade as it is a hybrid route. The first half is a bit run out but then you get some bomber nuts and the bolt shortly after. It's a long way to the top from there though.... Found it an enjoyable route though.

Fell off just after clipping the bolt - I'm blaming the dust that had come down in the monsoon
