|112m, 3 pitches. Mackey's Lookout area
P1) 42m 16*: Start at small curving ledge (DBB). Sustained enjoyable face climbing on thin
rails. Follow the white streak past 8 BR crossing large flakes at 3/4 height. 5m below belay
scoop traverse right along break to weakness on right. FA Josef Goding, Nicholas Allan,
Michael Milne 28.01.2008 *Need 10 x bolt plates.
P2) 55m 15** Start at lovely belay scoop (DBB with double captive rap rings). Up prominent
white streak, directly above belay. Very thin, balancy, and sustained. Would be easier if cool
or in overcast conditions. DBB with link chain and single captive rap ring. FA Michael Milnes,
Josef Goding, Nicholas Allan 28.01.2008 *all glue in ring bolts.
P3) 25m 7: Straight up from belay crossing small overlap. 2 glue in ring bolts. Ends at DBB
(each with captive rap ring) on easy to get to large boulder at top of cliff, roughly level with
the waterfall where it breifly goes vertical.|
This climb is in 1 logbook, and on no wishlists.
An awesome slab route all the way up the centre of Mackey's Lookout - an intimidating location requiring three abseils to get to the start of teh climbing. Well bolted throughout (a rarity for this location). We only climbed pitches 2 & 3 as we started on No Ego.
