Comments: A bit of a heads up, the beta herin is not entirely accurate. The NZ equivalent of MP is climbnz.org.nz/ and you'll find most routes there.

Comments: The first pitch made me puke! Serious thrutching and harder than anything on Black Arrow. Gotta hate it to love it.

Comments: Fantastic climbing on stellar rock, but a death route! There is one rusty old bolt to protect a potential 60 foot whipper. The leader may as well untie after leaving the protection of the upper seam. All due respect to the original ascensionists for their bold ground-up style. I think the route would be much more popular if it was made safer by, at the very least placing a new bolt by the old one.

Comments: Watchtower is a 5.7, (16). It has been done in two pitches on double 60 meter ropes clipping nothing but fixed gear. It's a classic feature!

Comments: Sherman is wearing a harness under his jeans and is clipped into 'Lord of the Rings' on Henry Bolte Wall. I think it's a grade 28, but it goes in flip flops (thongs).
