Haha! Thanks all!
Ek wil net dankie sê vir my ma en vir my pa, en my ouma en oupa...

But seriously, great vision from the pioneering party: Malcolm, Greg and Ross.
Super stoked to be a part of the process!

And was it not for the communal beta concocting, cheating shenanigans with Danie, the route would probably still feel impossible. Thanks dude. Sondag ry jy hom in die grond in. Super alles!

Tony Dick, Deon Van Zyl, Bruce Daniel and I recently developed the Sublime Time Buttress on the West facing ridge of Yellowwood Ravine. We are not the first party to explore that crag. In 1981 Mike Scott with Peter De Tolly (he can still be seen cranking at CityROCK on Tuesday mornings) and John Moss did the "Red Waterfall route" at "F" grade. Sublime Time is the plum route there but all the climbing is excellent with the top red face providing 5* quality. The routes are 140 to 160m long and can be done in 4 or 5 pitches. There is a very user abseil descent on the right. Send me a PM for the high res picture which you can download on a smart phone and use as a route guide as you climb by magnifying the picture to see the detail!.

The approach starts at the same place from the N1 as the other YW routes. Continue to the pilon. Walk another 20 minutes or so passing through a shallow gulley and then soon after there is a short corner scramble of around 3m. Continue up about 30m and spot a cairn adjacent to the forest. Once in the forest go down and left behind a boulder, squeeze past a tree and then head up right for about 30m following cairns. Have tea at the stream. If it is dry go up about 20-30m and find a black barrel with water. Follow cairns diagonally out left and continue up the ramp for around 250m until at the base of the routes. Stay on the clean gray rock slabs and avoid the loose gullies on each side.

Sublime Time is the route to do but once you do the 19 pitch rap off and do the 20 pitch on the right. It is superb. You have plenty of time to do Some Time as well in a normal day if it is not too hot and you will end up having done 320m (1000ft) or so of excellent moderate climbing. In time I will post this all on the WIKI.
