Description 

sustained awesomeness starting with slab, slopers, jugs and ends with a good bouldery top out. (26 meters, 60 meter rope with stretch is perfect)

this route may be the only route at Paynes Ford that is a proclaimed classic that is under 5.11. this is a must do for any/all level of climber, use it as a warm up or a goal, fantastic!


Location 

Stone Symposium Wall (Track 2), black blank slab with a punga (fern) tree beneath


Protection 

9 bolts and chains

On the bathroom wall at Hangdog Camp there's a list of those who have climbed Temples of Stone naked... I'm proud to have joined the club ;)

How did I miss that??!?!?

Granted, my sister belaying me would have had a bad time.
