On a recent trip to the crag we noticed about five newly bolted routes on the far left of the crag, past the Cloud Nine wall. There is also a route on the right side of Cloud Nine and a new route tp the right of \"Blockhead\" (the long 20). Does anyone know the grades of these routes? Many people are asking the question. Thanks.

The route to the right of cloud nine wall is Malcolm Gowan's \"My Precious\" grade 20. Pumpy and sustained in the lower half V.nice! Some of the rock at the start is a bit suspect so handle with care. The line right of Blockhead is my project and isnt open yet. It too features many loose blocks reinforced with glue so stay off it until Ive opened it and am satisfied its safe. Lines left of cloud nine? news to me. Anyone know anything about them? -Greg.

Yet another New Route!! This time its between the two 18's near the main abseil chains. Looks like an OK line. Anyone know anything? Still waiting to hear about the four new very short routes on the far left of the crag. (Almost like a new area)

On a similair note, noticed a new route left of \"Between the Lines\". Good for botanists :wink: . I guess about 18. Anyone got name etc for this route?

Route bolted by Ryan, about 18/19. Please dont remove the vegetation as leaving it in was a condition of the bolting permission requirements. Thanks. Not sure what he has called it tho?

The Route just left of 'between the lines' I have opened is 'Stealth' grade 19 and is there for all to enjoy.

Thanks for that info. Climbed the route yesterday and yep, the grass doesn't get in the way... it just *looks* like it will. It does hide a jug though, but one doesn't really need it, as the sequence is cool with just the little layaway. We all reckoned it was a definite grade 18.
cheers
