Howsit Trad lovers!

I'm keen to give Renaissance a burn in Autumn. Does anyone have any info on the route? Is there a guide?

Any info would be very helpful!

Thanks!!
Kai :)

It's a great route Kai. A real proper route.
It's like climbing Odd Shouters' Outing, Farewell to Arms, Touch and Go, Roulette and Boltergeist in a row, with a scramble of one or two times Table Mountain thrown in. Plus some big wall route finding. And climbing with a pack.
If you want to do an oil check do the above routes and walk to get an idea.
I see the route description gives a grade of G2 A3. Brian Gross and I did it all free in December 1979 (I don't know about FFA). We graded it G3 (22-ish).
ciao!

Thanks so much Nic and Hilton! Much appreciated.
It looks like the business for sure. Really fired up and Roulette seems like a must while its still sunny.

So psyched. We're hoping to be heading in Autumn, Wish us luck :)
