Comments: One of the "old" bolts on the aid traverse popped off on December 24. This section is now a little harder than A0. Could probably be freed in the 11s, and could probably be aided by someone comfortable/skilled with shaky aid.

Comments: I left Burma Rd. at the switchback, followed the base of the Marsupials, then went behind the Wombat. The short crack problem does have a few (low)5th class moves, but is v. short, with a smooth/safe landing. After gaining the slab, it is a simple scramble, little exposure. View of main area from the summit is unbelievable...it's worth the trip!

Comments: Probably true that the climbing is all 4th class, but there are a few spots for decent pro, and I was glad to have a rope to get down with.

Comments: Two points-
1st: The chimney wall below the chockstone is super rotten:smear with care;
2nd:If you're going up, bring a pencil to leave in the summit register...the pen is no good!

Comments: First bolt isn't all that hard, although I agree the fall would be v. ugly. The second bolt, though...it sure seemed desperate to me! Watts says left hand in the crack, but I was on the face. One bomber hold at the bolt, and you're golden.

Comments: Beautiful route, though the layback crux seems mild for a 10b. Two lessons learned: rack all you draws on the left side, and don't bother setting a toprope for the second, the swing is a killer.
