Watch Me Wallaby Wank, Frank** E4 6a
15m. Start at the finish of Short Stories (left of arete). Climb passed two bolts (crux is in between). Step right for a good foothold on arete. Continue up to the ledge. Either finish direct up to the left (precarious) or follow the arete (easier). Bolt belay on a block at the top. A bolt has replaced where there was an insitu peg.

agree its soft, run out to the first bolt is easy, just a head game maybe 5a/b move just before the bolt but your gona fall onto the ledge and then down the never never land cutting ...sounds fun?

Was more concerned about belaying the first section.

1st try. Soft for E4 but would not want to fall from the 1st section or the top. Good route.
SGD - Lead RP - 09/Jul/14 with Vicky Holmes

More shunt practice but with the aim of leading this one. 1st bolt is pretty high but not as high as slug club maybe 5a/b climbing? but a fall from before that bolt could send you over the edge and down into never neverland. Crux is well protected though and fairly short lived. Run out finish but easier climbing.
SGD - TR RP - 08/Jul/14 with Shunt

Fell of due to being a fanny, got it third go. No way this deserves a trad grade, felt more like f6c. Crux sequence is good fun, the top is a bit crap in comparison.

Good but short-lived. Can't really see where the E4 comes from (the move to the first bolt?)

one cool section of climbing between the 1st and 2nd bolt with a balancy 5c move, but generally not a good route as there is not a good line. went up to the left at top. E3 5c

One thin move
david morse - Lead O/S - 07/Nov/10 with big Jon

ground-up 2nd go. was really cold after belaying mason on never-neverland....got to crux on 1st go then got all confused with my feet and as i moved my foot up to the good foothold my hands popped. lowered to the ground, warmed up and then had it. wicked moves to, and up the arete. A good route IMHO

hetaher - TR - 20/Aug/07 with Lee

Stepped on 1 bolt, cos the foothold was crap. Actually the bolt looked a bit dodgy so I thought I'd check it would at least take body weight :P
C@rwyn - TR - 20/Aug/07 with Jake

Pleased with my second clean onsight E3 lead. Topping out is definately easier for the tall man.

didn't find the peg mentioned in the guide book. So, the whole route was done with just the two bolts... scary.
