Alternative route off lunchtime ledge to 'Direct Route'. This is the only S i've done with a groundfall runout. Great Fun!

Really fun climb, easier than other severe's in the gorge. Very easy to protect, only needed nuts. A bit chossy at the very top but easy top out so not much of a problem.

did this, I think, pulled up into what looked like a bush a couple of times, traversed all the way back and finished up the direct after all. bad Jezza

Went off route for a little bit, felt very hard for a couple of moves, muddy in places (it is December), spikey top out avoided but soooooo much rope drag

After Dexter. Chris lead, a bit run out at the start and the bushes are a pain, but nice moves overall. Finished as the sun dipped over the opposite hills.

after dexter. really nice exposure on the top moves over the roofs on massive holds. some care required at the top not to pull off any hand holds.

not sure if i got it right at the very end, probably didn't go right enough which was ok except that I had to crawl through some bushes

Haven't done this way off lunchtime ledge before. Alright, but didn't go right enough at the top and ended up going between two very sharp trees! Really 2 stars?! Wasn't that special.

A good finish to Sinister

Quarryboy 30/Jun/11 Lead O/S

Good variation, a tad loose in places and hard for the grade in my opinion.

Nice route, better than Direct Route. Not sure where the groundfall runout is? I found gear the whole way, as long as you're prepared to be creative.

Zoomer 21/Mar/09 Lead

Great friction once you leave Tea Time Ledge. Bit overgrown but really good exposure. Gear typical of the Gorge...shite.

Much nicer than Direct Route, so long as it doesn't fall down.
