TR: old/new (who knows?) routing 5-Aug-2014 At 1:57:46 PM uwhp510
Thread bump...

In answer to the question posed by the thread... I have the answer. They are all "old" routes, done in the 80s and written up in ACT Granite, along with the prescient warning to prospective FAs, as quoted earlier in this thread;

"Most of the climbs described here have been engulfed by pine regrowth and are only recorded here to stop some 'passing c--kroach's' pathetic attempts at glory."

davidn is right in that what he did isn't Mercenary Swine, although neither is it anything new. Here are the real routes and grades;

"Flypast Crack" (E3 6a/V5?!?) is actually "Never again" gr 20
"Spiderhouse Traverse" gr16 is actually "Trivia" gr 14
"Trailbike Wankers" gr29 (WTF?!?) is actually "Good things come in small packages" gr 23
"Farewell to Arms" gr 18 is actually "Gripped off me scon" gr 16

Having spent a fair bit of time out at Pierce's Creek over the last year or so, doing my best to ruin the ambiance with 2 stroke noise/fumes on the trusty Husky, I've become quite familiar with the lay of the land, which has helped me immensely to decipher the access descriptions from ACT Granite.

ps Trail bikes rule :)
