Swinburne – new multi pitch route

Andrew Pedley and Jahne Michael Theron bolted a 5 pitch line on the Tempest wall in Swinburne.  The route is called ‘Universal Energy Theory‘ and weighs in with the following grades: 28, 28, 25, 26, 26.

The route took 4 days to prepare which involved, hiking, abseiling, jumaring, bolting, screaming, fear, joy, vultures, expansive views, choss, swinging in space, rain, sunshine and little thought of the outside world.

Andrew said on his Facebook page “It would be a very impressive feat to free all pitches in one push in one weekend.. anyone up for the challenge!?
