What routes should be on the tick-list?

Should one have an opportunity to spend a fortnight at the base of the Wolfberg.

From memory the obvious are:

16 quite something (or is it a 15?)
17 nougat
18 knobless robot & omega
19 satisfaction guaranteed
20 energy crisis
22 celestial journey

But I've done them all few times and looking for fresh hunting grounds.

not jealous, not jealous at all.....

i haven't climbed nearly as much trad lines there as i would have liked to, but heard that:
the first pitch of wolfgang (22) is worth a standing ovation
alone in space (22) looks out of this world :alien:
day of the jackals (19) is worth the hunt
and old timers disease (21) - have your prostate checked before you go up there :wink:

guess you could just grab the guidebook and check out the many 4 & 5 star routes.

the hidden gem may be climbing the first two pitches of whinge (25) and bypass the crux via little red rooster - according to jeremy samson this composite line would be the best grade 20/21 at wolfberg.

I'd add

Eclipse (13)
Little Red Rooster (15)
Le Grand Gul (17)

(Quite Something is a 17)

And for the mutant/insane/insanely good: Red Rain (26)

Old Timers Disease must require balls of solid titanium. That step around the corner on the last pitch is totally crazy.
