Comments: Well, that was one long time to what was probably the second ascent.
Good job...
As I recall, the occasion for Fig and DB being up north was the last (unknown at the time) one of Baxer's Syndicato banquets... Steve, Herb North, Peter Noebles all came up from down south.

Seems like we also did something else backup in there on the same day (besides Dr Rubos). Or maybe I just went over and Steve tossed us all a rope down this climb so we had a gang on the summit. I'll have to ask him what he... more >>

Comments: That's The Moai.
3 routes on it I believe, from 18 to 24(?)

Most mellow approach of the 3 but still a fun adventure.
1.5 -2 hours walk N of Fortescue bay
Simpler to access than Totem or Candlestick.

Comments: uhh, while I don't mind taking credit for other's FAs, I don't recall doing this one. Not that I would recall some little POS but if I drilled on it I would remember and I never placed a cold shut on the lemmon.

Comments: Actually, after looking more closely at these pics, not sure I recall anyone doing these shorter things. These look like they're over to the right hand side? The stuff i recall was the things closer out to the corner (around bush rush, etc...)

So (very late in the response) I don't recall the 9ish top out Mark mentions.

Comments: Cool, good to see you got on it.
This was actually one of my favorite FAs out there.
The clean slab you go up is cool.

All the routes from here over to CrackNUp are really quite good.
Some better than others but none are duds, at least as I recall, each one has at least some cruxy bit up high that is good for a rush.

It is deceptive. All these routes are. They look short but have good value.

I really miss having a crag like this in my back yard for short afternoon jaunts. Coupled with Elde... more >>

Comments: "Flicking clear cutting is an abomination and looks like hell."

LMAO...
There was no clear cutting here.
It's a fairly solid volcanic mass up that side, much steeper than the photo makes it look.

And of course the Elden fire of '75 started on this side and swept up the canyon to spill over the top.

That's an awesome view.
