|What are your favourite climbs in Vic?
Dodgy mentioned Stentor (16) at Araps. He had the misfortune of dragging me up it. He should have packed a cut lunch :-)
But my 3 favs are:
1) Bard (butt sticking out far enough on the traverse, that on a windy day, I would probably whistled)
2) Spiegelís Overhang (sensational, but damn hot in the sun. Approach is a pain also)
3) Harlequin Cracks (Dodgy had another misfortune of dragging)
I like Eskimo Nell as well. The reward comes at the top, when you get to appreciate the sensational views.
I know these are all lower grades, but the enjoyment factor is definitely there!

p.s. : keep an eye on the cauldron, dude --- I am right in the middle of some gnarly Post-Doc'-R&D.
