not a bad crag actually.
and if your daring enough you can convince the derro bums drinking jim beam
and breaking beer bottles on the climbs to put down their spray cans and paper
bags to give you a spot.

Oi! Slaggin' orf at one of my fine routes! Thanks for coming to my defence Dalai.
Come to think of it, I originally graded that route 19 as well, not 20. But then was delighted to hear that Carrigan fell off it ..

On the Northern Side of Raetjen's Gap, where the routes average 5-6m there is one by Nyrie Dodd, Hypnotherapy 4.5m 19 on top rope. The guide also suggests that it maybe undergraded. But then 4.5m would be over 3 bodylengths for Nyrie!

Seeing as this has become the topic - how are these for a nice day out?
John Gaskin's 'Violent New Breed' (9a+/36) 2 bolts, 6 metres (UK)
or closer to home: Nathan Hoette's 'Honey Pot' (29) 2 bolts, 5 metres, Arapiles.
There's also the unrepeated (now out of bounds) 'Excuse I' (31) 6m, Arapiles.

I think Iíll go to Melton tomorrow and climb what could be the best climb in the
Universe (Except for Ivan.) Iíll take some photos to show the hidden beauty of this
climbing treasure. If anyone wants to come along, I suggest wearing a hoddie,
ripped jeans and carry a flask of Jim Beam so that youíll fit into the neighbourhood.

Hey, watch it elmo, Im from melton and we love our local crag, outsiders are welcome, but only if they are of good moral character. Alcohol is permitted, providing it is in a flagon (Spelling??), and you must bring your own .. ie: No stealing

This place is not in the same league as Bullungerook slate quary or staughton vale, however it does compare to a few lesser know crags such as ceuse or taipan wall. Juts bring that friendly attitude, one quickdraw will suffice on most routes and you will have a whole lot of fun.

Regards, Phil
