Description 

Although west-facing, Blipvert is in a fairly tight gully so keeps shade longer in the morning than other walls facing the same direction. This area has seen some development in the last half decade, and is now home to a few hard, long sport routes.

Getting There 

Take the left fork of the loop trail at the top of the stairs and head past Doctor's Wall to the split in the rocks at the north end. It's the left-hand, or west facing tower.

Located on the west face of Blipvert Tower, this is a newer variation on some existing routes. It takes the line of red painted bolts up a steep and sustained technical face, along a right-trending seam, and then through a burly series of overlaps. At almost 35m long and with no rests in the last two thirds, this is a real pump fest....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Some recent new route action, and clean-up of old routes, has turned this into a destination for ultra-long hard sport pitches. The color-coded bolt hangers give it a bit of a gym feel, but they actually work pretty well for the situation. The downloadable supplement at skaha.org has details.
