Description: Difficult steep face climbing. 5 bolts and some gear at mid-height.

Pitch 1: Climb the face past three bolts, make a dynamic move to a horizontal hold (possible .5), move feet up and shoot for the top of the block (.5-.75 behind the block). Make a delicate and difficult mantle move up to a rest and 4th bolt. move slightly left to an obvious flake and undercling and make thin moves up and left of next bolt. A balancy exit move will hold your attention until you are clear of the slab.


Directions: Located on a face 20' right of the Dedication Corner (12' right of Bondi Beach). Good spacious, and flat stance for the belay.

Descent: Rappel from the trees


draws and cams from 0.5-.075

5 bolts

Tree anchor with stainless rap rings

Sot on this again after a year or so. Damn it's on you from the moment you leave the ground...but what a fun route.

Psyched you liked it Steve. The route definitely stays with you for sure. Could be a bit tougher than we rated it...consensus???

Did it yesterday for the first time. Took one hang at the third bolt then got it. Top roped it after and got it clean my first try. I would say 5.11 is acurate although sustained imop it is no harder.

climbed this the other day and although Ive had trouble at the dynamic move in the past found this to be a great and challenging route. I think that the crux is not only the dynamic/deadpoint but also the moves getting set up for it after clipping the second bolt. As an onsight I would agree with the 11a grade however if you know the moves it feels considerably easier around 10c/d. In comparison to other 11- routes at this cliff I would say it feels a tad easier.

Dhane, was That you I saw on it a couple of weeks ago climbing with a female partner? We had just done Wanderlust and a couple of routes over at the Geriatric wall when we saw a climber topping out on it?!

It certainly may have been! Considering the weather and lack of dry rock around I may have been on it more than once this spring haha. Was their another male climber present as well? I do recall seeing a party around on one of those days. Wonderful route btw Chris, really enjoy it.
