TR: Tarana take two 19-Dec-2016 At 7:14:30 PM timfreddo
The "Rockclimbs in the upper Blue Mountains" Second edition by SRC (Mark Baker on Reverse of the odds on the cover) has a few more routes in it than the Rock "Tarana" Guide.

It's saying the Dyke is... "? 15 *- dyke L of goog gully. BR & #1.5fr to BB"
Also has " Y? 21- Start L of Dyke. 4FH to BB
and "? 16- 2m R of Dyke. 2FH & Stud (needs wire) to BB

Tarana almost needs a "select best" guide... using obvious features (Like that Dyke) to describe where climbs are..
Worth Brushing and re-bolting the Classics, and letting the no star climbs fade away...

You guys should try Flog a Dog next time! Summit or nothing!
With a couple of #5-#6 Cams it wouldn't be too bad ;) the featured horizontal hand crack to get to the short off width is great! Just like the Bard at Araps, but without the roof above you..
With a belay you could probably traverse from the top of kersplat (or a route to it's left) to the anchors of the great **19 flake, and bloodbath (20**) for a top rope...
Doesn't seem like too much of a grade difference between 17 and 20 on those slabs... If scary and desperate is how a 17 there feels, at least a 19 or 20 will be scary, desperate but more well protected!
