So what are they? We're not short of great rock but what iconic lines are left to do?

there's a post somewhere listing a few options to keep you occupied in the Gramps. It might be in the Ben frees Gilgamesh thread.

Barrenjoey Headland has a few soaring faces that need grid-bolting.

So much to keep people busy, depending on their adventurouness.

Ben and Jerry' things on the Bluff. Inquisition. Oh, and Somalia is the route left of India, not the country.

Really long route at Wollombi Armidale.

West Face Yullidinida, at Kaputar.Makes Shah Jalud look like a picnic.

Large sections of Frenchmans.

These adventurous things sound cool, I guess that was what I was wondering, is hard sport climbing
the only future for Australia climbing. It doesn't seem as though much has been added in this vein
since Carrigan and friends.

Bungonia has sporadic action with hard long routes.

Wollombi? Wollomombi? What ever.

It's an incredible piece of rock. There's a long wasy route between that and Chandler which I'm really interested in. What sort of rock is it?

There's an unclimbed offwidth at Pierce's Creek, and one at Tarana I believe as well.

My mistake on the spelling. The ridge is one of Australlia's great excursions. But downstream there is huge wall. The rock is not the best.

From what I have seen and read, it appears that the pendulum swings back to trad once the novelty of hard sport climbing wears off for the elite in that genre.

What about the freeing of Ozymandias?

I heard about a fabled unclimbed offwidth at Black Range, with its whereabouts being mystical indeed.

You want offwidths. 10m horizontal offwidth ceiling. Top of the 150m Grey Wall. Gara Gorge. Armidale. Ripe for the picking.

I don't really want off-widths, but I am an admirer. I liked Gara Gorge a lot when we climbed there.
