anthony moore 28 Jun 2nd another outstanding outing, beautiful but long walk up the river esk ,passing multiple tempting swimming holes on a scorching day. quite a serious scramble approach- i would probably rope if doing it again(or did we get our routefinding wrong?)terrific climb,square chimney pretty polished and challenging with a sack. great positions and amazing top pitch. long day out and back to the van for 10.30

Marq 22 Jun AltLd O/S Dave led P1 square chimney which felt stiff for the grade. P2 was mossy so opted to lead up P2 of Brdige's route and then for p3 I led traverse across to base of the hand jamming crack. Dave then led p4 and then I finished with p5 for Dave to lead the scramble up to the top
