2 pitches. 5a,5b. The top pitch starts strenuously up a little capped corner to a resting ledge and dubious peg. A neat little sequence of moves left lead to the base of a shallow groove and hand crack. Arrange good gear here and commit to the bulge above.

Lead pitch 1, seconded pitch 2. Fantastic route, worthy of 2 stars in my opinion.

LJKing 25/Jun Lead O/S

Led both pitches. A good climb but we thought this was quite tough due to the loose nature of the rock on the second pitch.

Again a brilliant route with no polish. No move on this as hard as the one move on freedom direct. Again done in one 30m pitch I don't know why they split all these routes. Much better in one. Stepping across the void is fun let's hope that peg holds. Gets a star in guide definitely deserves it.

The guidebook indicated this was a soft touch E1; I thought the initial move up the corner on pitch 2 was a hard 5c, with sustained 5b above.......pretty tough.

Top rope solo. Repeat of my first e1 lead. Felt that the crux is right at the top. Possibly due to the vegetation. Climbed 2nd pitch first. 1st pitch second. Missed a crucial grip on first pitch and found it really hard! 1st pitch vegetated.

Nice first climb for the day. I was spooked by a bird flying out of a crack a good 3 or 4 metres above my last gear. This kept the feeling of boldness. A nice climb. Some Hawthorne nonsense on the first pitch.

Nice and steady, and not at all bold and loose, as suggested by the guide book writeup.
