Comments: I forgot to mention the anchors and rappel setup. From the top of Nega. and Gorga. there is a rappel anchor (east end of summit) consisting of a tied off block. It can be used as the anchor as well. The top of Goolabunga needs 2 large cams (3") for a bomber anchor.

Comments: The West face has a route called "Sandbag" that is a very technical lead. One should be a solid 10c leader. Remember to double back your harness. The one time I forgot to was when I led this route. Thank God I didn't fall!

Comments: Craig Fry and I did the FA of this route (I lead it) with one bolt and a couple of pins. Who bolted it up? I know that neither of us did. I wanted to call it "Sanctuary" but somehow that other name stuck.

Comments: I free-soloed this route in 1974 and found a #11 Hexentric at the start of the OW. I assumed that I had done the FA since there were no anchors on top and the downclimb turned out to be as hard as the climb! I figured that the hex marked their bail point (the poot).

Comments: Here is the story behind the route name. Mike Raab and I were best friends in High School (Corona Del Mar H.S.) and called each other Nurn. We thought the route was going to be harder than it was, hence, it was a romp! This route was one of our first F.A.'s.
