Queens Birthday Long Weekend at Arapiles

1:01:34 PM
We had over 10 people in the end, but we split up into groups, so myself, Kent and Richard did Watchtower Crack (16) one day, and a bunch of shorter stuff on the other two days. The full trip report is over here, including a few pictures. All up a fun weekend, despite the occasional light rain.

OUCH! Salt in the wound!

Shoe, Helen, Tim, Chan, Blacky and I spent the entire long weekend in a soggy Stapylton campground. No, I lie, we played golf in Halls Gap on Sunday and searched desperately for devonshire teas.... seems Halls Gap don't make enough scones over long weekends.... we opted for a beer instead.

Cold and rainy nights and days, and we should've just driven the extra hour and tried our luck at Araps.... silly us, hoping the cloud and fog would lift.

Ahhh, the farmers need the rain....

Let me reword it for you then. How's this:
Kent took a crack at the 25 to it's right, but gracefully declined to ascend it's polished surface after a gallant tÍte-ŗ-tÍte with a mono-pocket.

I think not. Trads depravitous talons with forever clutch at your soul, no matter how many bolts you clip. Besides Iíve seen your tick list ;-)

By the way, check this pic, it looks like you are soloing Watchtower Crack, with a rather humerous look of concern.
