Routes between Deceit and Barefoot & Pregnant

7:52:19 AM
Out at Black Hill on Saturday. Did Deceit and the other routes on the same block. There's 4 routes in the guide (Deceit, Long Neck Stubbies, Sink the Sausage and Barefoot and Pregnant) but 5 lines of bolts. One of them had 4 bolts (middle route) which makes me think that might be the new line as the guide says the rest have 3, but the guide might have an error.

Does anyone know what the route is that isn't in the guidebook and which line of bolts it is?

Robin Holmes put up a new route (with Steve Chapman I think) about 2 months ago.
I toproped it with him earlier in the year before it was brushed and bolted. About grade 18 I think.

I don't know how many bolts he put in it, but he's on the forum from time to time.

11:05:36 AM
Would it be between Long Neck Stubbies and Sink the Sausage?
11:41:11 AM
I think so. Don't recall the routes there exactly. There's an 18 I led slightly right of centre that was a little runout at the top, would that be Sink the Sausage? If so the new route is to its left, flakes up the wall.

i was at black hill they day Robin?? put it up. I then talked to him a few months later and he said it is a grade 18. I think that it may have a extra bolt down lower that could make it more popular than its run-out counterparts.
