There's a facetious comment in the Adelaide Hills guidebook about a 10k mid-level traverse from Waitpinga Beach to near Victor Harbor which would be on greywacke (sandstone) interspersed with steep dirt. You'd have to be keen!

Just to add some perspective, pitch 10 or 11 is on the left side of that shot - you're only seeing half the wall.

There's a red stripe of sandstone at the 60-80m level that is the obvious line, hence the name. (Fizzles out about pitch12 unfortunately).

The "obvious line" really appears to be those big horizontal stripes of greenery. Still, the late Chris Baxter would have been proud of you. It no doubt sits proudly alonside other gems of the genre such as The Twilight Zone, Sidewinder and (who could forget) the original F-Sharp.

Is it this Pacific Wall? https://www.thecrag.com/climbing/australia/grampians/north-grampians/area/12976837

From the link - "Pacific Ocean Wall is a spectacular wall of unbroken rock, 100-120m high, stretching for over a kilometer."

Yep, and you can see the line of Red Tide in the Ghandi topo.
Waterfall is dry at the moment, fortunately.

I would have thought the longest route would be a girdle traverse of the limsstone nullabor cliffs more likely to be 100+ km than 1000 m certainly a multiday climb

Perhaps we could make that a project for Joe? Our steelmakers need an economic boost.

So, what is the largest number of bolts on a single climb in Australia?

I suspect this new route might send the metal detector off scale!!
