Could anyone tell me if The Confidence Reefer at Strubens is an elimante? i.e. Is the Streetfighter crack entirely out of bounds (for hands and feet) or do you start on Streetfighter and then traverse left onto the prow higher up?

If it's the latter, at what point do you traverse in?

if that's the 27, then yup, the crack is completely out of bounds, do a long move up from the start jug to a bad pinch, then stand up into the bad undercling and move from there to the big flake, straight up from there, the big pinch out left higher up (that you use on the 25) is also off route

True, I haven't. But by the sound of it, I'll remember to take some rolls of coloured duct tape with when I get the chance. :pirat:

I disagree, If you climb it without using anything on the 22 to the right, or the 25 to the left, for hands or feet (for example, clipping the third bolt is a lot easier with your feet on the 22's ledge, but that's off route), its pretty burly. move for move definitely harder than grimslade or lawyers, but then again its is half the length :)
I still think it would be nice to get a high jump mat up there and boulder all the routes
