Seasonal Closure Details

Description

Layback past 3 bolts (crux) to a big bucket. Place a small cam to protect a move to a big ledge. Follow the final crack of Tool King to anchors.

The name was inspired by a recent trip to Australia. I got very good at the Australian Salute, not to mention spitting them out.

Location

Begin just right of Tool King.

Protection

3 bolts plus finger size to 1 1/4" cams.

Fun, pumpy climb that offers quite the variety of climbing styles. Clips weren't bad, do this climb! May 3, 2013

Entire route seems solid now, looks like everything that could break off did already. Fun, pumpy climb. Mar 28, 2011

My partner broke bt bottom hold, then cleaned it up- more broke away while standing on it. I cleaned it more, then more shed while standing on it. More bound to come with time- watch the feet while clipping bolt #2. The rest of the route is more solid. Jun 16, 2010

Climbed this today, so no prior experience with the liebacks, and I'm no powerhouse at 52. I believe more pieces will break off, but don't think it will change the grade much at 10a. Didn't see the need for any larger than a .75 camalot. Nice climb! Oct 2, 2009

Winter has not been kind to this climb. The layback flake between the 1st and 2nd bolt is now mostly gone, pulled off yesterday afternoon (5/25/09). There are still edges and some flake to lay off of but now a mid to hard 10. May 26, 2009

I led this today, the second clip was the most difficult to make. After that it was pretty juggy, but I didn't bring enough finger-sized cams so I ended up running it out a bit. Kind of dirty and there is some bird crap but a route worth trying if you're in the area. Feb 3, 2009

A pumpy and committing route. We toproped the line after leading Tool King. The moves past the three bolts are strenuous liebacking and it looked difficult to let go to make the third clip. If you're not a solid 5.10 leader, better to toprope this line. Oct 19, 2008
