Ah numpties at Nowra. Part of the zest of life.

Irretrievably jammed and abandoned!

Reminds me of some of the more popular routes at Yoseimte. I remember doing one pitch on the Middle Catherdral (i think?) that was a total clip-up. I counted six fixed cams in the crack. All I used was quickdraws.

Yeah Neil, agree. Was the route the Central Pillar of Frenzy? Cool roof 3rd pitch with loads of cams in it. The Freeblast was similar....lots of link cams walk by the looks of it, too much range...

Yep - that sounds familiar! I did it before the advent of link-cams. It was a bit like a cam museum. There was one of every type on the route I reckon - from 1970s era friends to new camalots.

CPF had a few fixed cams in the wide section just above the roof when I did it ~4 years back; between them and the 2 #4s we took with us it made that section an utter stitch-up! I don't recall any fixed gear on the rest of it, though.

Central pillar of frenzy only has a few cams in that roof section as of a month ago. The amount of stuck cams in Yosemite in general was amazIng though
