There are now 10 new routes at Yellowwood since the beginning of the year. Most have been posted on the WIKI.

They are as follows starting on the first ridge/rib on the left and the continuing up from left to right:

1. Not The Best Time 19+ **
2. Sublime Time 19+ *****
3. Lekker Time 16 ****
4. Another Fckn Time 20+*****
5. Play Time 19 *****
6. Divine Time 19 *****
7. Time after Time 20+****
8. Good Time ***** 22
9. Tea Time *** 24 (Not a new route)
10. Extra Time 24 and Less Time 22 *****
11. Fine Time 20 ****

The star grading is obviously a little personally biased but relates to the context of the place and the fact that these are adventurous country routes. I have based the star grading on the fact that most of the pitches are as good as anything on TM or the Cederberg. They are interesting and thought provoking and mostly on very steep rock for the grade (so safe). There are no "stopper moves". One or two pitches have some lichen (esp the 4th Pitch of Lekker Time) that does not really affect the climbing quality. All the pitches (with the exception of a short easy section on Extra Time 3rd pitch which is shared with Fine Time) are well protected. None have been "climbed-into-condition" yet so beware of breaking holds.

Fine Time needs to be straightened a little so not on the WIKI yet.

Have fun

Aaaaaahhhhh Saving those two. Then there is Dogged Time....... Enough Time; Time Out; From time to time, It is Time; and more

As for the time of my life is what I do with my wife.

Ja c'mon down dude. Most are easy enough for you. But there are one or two tricks that might challenge you.

What is amazing is that out of the 60 odd pitches there are only 3 chossy pitches due to lichen but the climbing is still good and only one bit of 3m runout. So much more consistent than just about any other country route that I have done
