An even better right-hand finish that only just makes the grade. When level with the right end of the narrow overhang (atop the orange scar) clip the bolt just above then climb up past a further bolt on the right and step up delicately into a short, slim bare groove, Climb the groove past two bolt runners and, from the wall above, reach over to the right to a double ring abseil station.

Doing it in the dark makes it slightly more interesting!

I forgot how good this was. The new additional bolt at the start seems somewhat unnecessary.

find this route arm-withering
hms - Lead rpt - 19/Mar/14 with Nick

Nice enough, strange holds but enough good ones to keep it low in the grade.
Nick Russell - Lead β - 19/Mar/14 with Helen

First route of the day and had done an orienteering race just before, so dogged the start. And why not.

Good route. Better finish than 'Bushmen', and probably a smidge harder.
Alex Winter - Lead O/S - 27/Oct/13 with Joe

6b at the most

Meant to climb Bushmen Don't surf, but accidentally climbed this instead! Was happy with it as a 6b, but haven't done its neighbour so not sure how it compares. Thought it was pretty good if a little friable at points.
JKinsella - Lead O/S - 16/Jul/13

First bolt pre clipped. Felt Ok.
Phil Murray - Lead rpt - 25/Jun/13 with Ian Law

Take the time to use the rests and its not too bad!
Cheese Monkey - Lead RP - 09/Jun/13 with Helen

Did parent route a couple of weeks ago, variation finish today. I think the variation finish is better and a good route.
hms - Lead β - 09/Jun/13 with Ben

Again, crux is at bottom. Interesting moves into the groove, but soft touch 6b+, though definitely "one" harder than its neighbour on the left.

good climb, not sure about the + in 6b+, top felt hard but I guess mostly because i was sooo pumped. as onsight as can be after having done the parent route a couple of months ago.

Difficult route to read, the holds are not obvious! Lost the pump battle ultimately
