M75 you seem a good sport but don't you feel a bit of a dill setting up a portaledge on a short route on a popular mex style sport crag? I certainly don't deny the exposure and granduer of Tiapan but its just not that big. Believe it or not some of the crags at Nowra are as big as Tiapan. wouldn't setting up the ledge mid week in a tree serve you just as well for future big wall sorties and then you could just enjoy a days climbing on the pillar?

You have a good point WWS. I am happy in the knowledge that I am a doofus and I believe this shows in my original plan to bivi on Redex at Werribee Gorge. Then i got talking about Buffalo and somehow decided on Seventh Pillar. Taipan wall looks a hell of a lot more fun than Werribee Gorge so I thought why not!

I reckon our impact on other climbers will be minimal given we'll have the ledge squared away by 9ish Sat morning. Anyone climbing through before the ledge is put away is welcome to a hot breaky and a cuddle.... in no particular order.

I've already set it up on the side of a golf driving range cage at a park in Ormond.... It wasn't as extreme as I would have liked;) I hung off the side of the cage practicing putting the darn thing up so many times I'm guaranteed to screw it up badly on the cliff.

See you bright and early Dan:) Knock on the green sleeping bag if I'm not awake.
