If your good at cracks its E4.

Get to Millstone and put some laps in on "The Streets".

Comments: This route does not go to the top of the crag.
See pic below for info. The summit is a very nice place for lunch.

Give me a shout if you need a belay.

Comments: Moves left and carrys on up the corner to the top.
The rte Last Shout goes up the slab on the left to a nut/cam fixed belay above the bush. It then joins RHBE for 15ft or so then breaks right up the shady corner.
PS. Glad all went well on ETD.

Comments: I bailed of the birch tree (is it still there?) on the ledge. So you only need a few pieces at the bottom before you start clipping the bolts.
And its Hatful of Hollow.

Comments: "most bolts in the area move".
How many bolts and on which routes are you talking about? Thats quite the comment as there are ALOT of bolts down there.
What other routes have you done of the nearly 200 routes?. We only hear of people doing the same old half dozen or so time after time in the whole Reef area.

As far as this route and all routes down there the bolt pla... more >>

Comments: Thanks lads, glad you liked it, both Scott and I thought it could be 4 stars. Super route.
Have to say, if we had used grit ethics there would have been bugger all bolts, so think yourselves lucky:)

Comments: Yeah Brad, did it last fall, anytime you want a catch let me know. People have been on it but not sure if its had a second ascent. You would be the man to put that to rest.
Had a very nice cuppa at yours the other day, the place looks great.

Clay, I think I used one of the holds you mentioned somewhere on the route.

Super nice climbing with a sting in the tail.
Historical Note: This might be one of the first routes that George cleaned top down.
