The Chute* VS 5a

Adjacent Climbs
<< Helter Skelter
 
Space Scuttle >>
Scramble past the boulders and grass and up into a flake/groove right of Springboard. Good runners protect good moves, bypass the tree ledge and follow the easy flake to the right. Easy angled ground leads to the usual tree belay.

I started up Springboard; they is one hard move at the start of the quartz bulge but it is well protected.

I started up Springboard as this is where the Gary Latter guidebook shows the route going. The Quartz bulge was very vegetated over the top, ended up pulling on grass as couldn't find any more holds!

You need to do a bit of gardening on your way up. The grassy topout is particularly fun. ;)

started on live wire and traversed right under the overlap onto the chute. the move over the quartz bulge took a bit of working out.

Quartz moves are surprisingly interesting for the grade

Took a few attempts to get past the quartz lump, climbed high from there and along slab immediately below the roof, not sure that is the right route but after the struggle I was just happy to get up.
cashley - Lead dog - 19/Apr/09 with helen g

started up springboard but a bit wet, went onto chute and traversed to finish up twin cracks, slightly wandering but good fun, think i did three routes in one :-)
