Dangerous due to loose rock on the approach path. Another party approaching repeatedly kicked large amounts down which after 80m free fall could have killed us. Cheese eating surrender monkeys...

First serious multipitch route. 0630 reveille after 4 hours sleep. Silent drive to lookout point with a reluctant Smudge. Cold and eerie at the top, looking down. Smudge wanted to bail. Nah mate; lets go.
Stacked abseil in; 3 pitches; 25m, 45m, 35m. Used twin icelines. Will back up with a prussick next time!!!
Cruised pitch 1. Missed the double bolt, expecting a chain, between Pitch 2 and 3. Resulted in a huge run out clipping stripped down single quickdraw biners every other bolt and stuffing slings in my pocket. Used all my gear bar my cowstail and established a hasty tree belay on the limit of the rope. Belayed off an Italian hitch on my cowstail. Good times!
Long and bold traverse across overhang for pitch 4 to awesome hanging belay. Smashed the final pitch to be greeted by team of German Hells Angels cheering and taking photos.
Physically boxed and scared from start to finish. Memorable.
