You got to climb with Michael Jackson! Awesome. Where is this new epic test piece?

Dude, girdles are not routes, however guessing games are what Chocky is all about. From the name, I reckon it's a seaside girdle on reddish rock..........maybe some kind of extension to the sea level traverse at Freycinet?

Don't think you could extend the sea level traverse much without a bunch of walking could you?

Spill the beans Steve!

I smell a hoax. Consistently bloody long pitches to do 1013m in 19 pitches!

A traverse of Araps - from one end of the Tiger Wall to the other. I'm including all the other buttresses and cliffs that connect to make a continuous cliff with the tiger wall being somewhere in the middle.

Bugger it, I'll take another shot. You traversed round from bayside all the way past Windjammer Wall?

Did you guys rope up and walk from the Youies entry gate to the Flinders slab? Backwards?

60m rope. Plenty of stances, so we were running the rope out to 50m then finding a belay. One pitch was 60.9m I think.
Continuous climbing on unbroken rock, no bushes, bushbashing or having to walk across vegetation to join pitches.
On sandstone.

Was it a lap of Pacific Ocean Wall?

Maybe not a girdle but can't see where you'ld get 1,000 metres of climbing (let alone sandstone) in OZ without some significant traversing. There's some biggish cliffs in central Aust but relief is generally no more than 700m and the cliffs would be a lot smaller ... and it's hellish hot there at the moment.
Macquarie Island?

It's obviously a girdle of some shitty sea cliff.

I thought Steve had blown the klaxon on the girdle idea.

fark parts of my day are so boring that this is shaping up as a point of major intrigue and excitement for me.

Well I guarantee that this route will be worthless. I bet its only value will be talking it up on this thread. The fact that it allows you to belay at the end of every rope length would indicate it probably follows some long horizontal, ledge-like weakness.
