25m. Intricate and sustained climbing up the wall just to the right of the long groove of Cybernetic Orchard. Start right of a low overhang below a difficult-to-see bolt. Climb up broken ground to the main wall. Climb the wall directly via some hard climbing in its mid section. © ROCKFAX

climbed to retrieve my seized-up screwgate. The first time I have ever reached for a quickdraw and thought 'Oh bother, my mole-wrench is getting in the way'.
Jonathan Emett - Lead rpt - 12/Jul/11 with Lyndsay

really good! the dust doesn't interfere with the great moves. Lots of bolts, I run out of quickdraws.
Jonathan Emett - Lead O/S - 10/Jul/11
