Route Discription

Waltzing Matilda follows the first four bolts of Rusty Redneck before traversing left to a fifth bolt and a separate anchor.

Protection: 5 Bolts and maybe a few small Aliens for the runout between the 3rd and 4th bolt.

Climbed this last weekend, had not been climbed in some time from the conditions. Much harder than it's neighbor to the right, IMO. The crux for me was a good ways after the last bolt trying to place gear. The holds are there, just no good stance. Good climb none the less, with a taste of spice. Mar 10, 2016
Hmm, I recall this going at 11b, not 10b. Maybe Thomas will see this and chime in.

This route branches left from Rusty Redneck about 2/3 of the way up the wall. On the FA, I was hanging on a rope and about to put in a bolt when Thomas shouted that he would like to give it a go ground-up and gear only. Since that was better style I rapped on down, but left the rope hanging. TK worked in some very small shallow horizontal cams and then hung on forever seeking a path through the hard stuff. After a long intensely focused silence he yelled down "Send up the drill!" Oct 19, 2016
