Add New Routes below:
Diablo 27 *** (7D) Climb the bouldery face 5 meters right of afterthought. Intense start with a interesting finish. FA: Evan Margetts, July 2011
RAPTOPHILIA 32 **** (7D,A) It's not rape if you yell surprise! Start with your hands on the lowest holds and feet on the lowest boulders, no cheating. Fight your way to the chains using pure determination as your guide. Enjoy the intricate footwork and desperate stabbing for holds. Ensure that you clip the first draw from the ground to avoid injury. FA: Brian Weaver, April 2011
Iron Lotus 21 ** (8D) Climb the thin face just right of rocky, staying on the face(Going left makes it easier). FA: Darryl Margetts and Evan Margetts 2010
Spicy Habanero Salsa 24 *** (5D) Start on the right of Banging Bridget Jones. Start on the flat hand holds right of the thin vertical seam/crack. Traverse left into seam and climb up (hard) moving left into crack. Head rightwards into undercling under roof, through roof and finish up the final crack to the chains of BBJ. Possibly easier if you are tall. FA: Robert Powell and Edna Calvo, December 2011.
Coach 26 *** (12?D) Dedicated to Heiko Tillwick - Rest in Peace, Coach. Between Frazzle and Doug in the Yellow House. Not sure about the grade - opinion on this is welcome. FA: Marc 'Flex' Efune 2011. Bolted by Tim Dunnett and Dirk Smith.
