if you use draw extensions then you might make it a bit easier, not only on yourself and the grade, but also on your rope:)

Access has been great. Parking inside the St John's school the security guard has the key to the wilds and with regards to safety we haven't experienced anything. And really hope not too. :thumright

I used to love the wilds. The full traverse is probably the longest I've ever spent on a project. What are the brown streaks from though, don't remember them being there before.

Agree with Johann. Awesome pic, awesome looking route.
I think that I read somewhere that it's Hector Pringle. The route looks tough and if it's a Hector 23R then it's tough!

That is Ciska Kloppers opening a new 23 at The Mayhem.
The line immediately to the right has been bolted by yours truly and will hopefully (touch wood, tickle a goat or whatever superstitious people do) be open for everyone soon...
