Working Chieftain. An overhung long face.


Starts easy and gives you a chance to warm up to the crux around the fourth and fifth bolts - steep crimps, side pulls and finger locks. The whole climb is steep after the 2nd bolt. Enjoy a rest after the crux on a ledge then continue up airy climbing and try not to pump out to the top. Rating is a close estimate at this time, route has only been TR'd.


At the confluence of Spring Creek and Christopher Creek, just above the falls is a prominent tooth of rock, plainly visible as you look at the southern wall from across the gorge from the other side.


11 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

Can't wait to do this one, it looks stellar! Will have to be next time, I reckon. Nice work guys -- I recall seeing the beginnings of this last year and so it's good to see it completed. Will be fun to have a go.
