Only reference I can find online is a one liner about a Garth Miller problem: http://www.australianbouldering.com/list.html

Maybe track down Garth and ask him?

Mikl put together a mini guide a while ago..

I can barely climb anything at the moment, so big long easy choss is looking appealing.

Hayden's Butt Crack is loads of fun <insert endless jokes here>. He and I did it in 2000 or so as a through trip from Govett's Leap, which was a nice little adventure. Then the storms rolled in, Hayden gave me all the metal gear and ran off, leaving me as a human lightning rod on the exposed walk out - lightning was striking the next ridge to the east, about 500m away! Needless to say, I was forced to replace my underpants after that trip...

BTW it might be worth hooking up with Hayden - he's a lot of fun to climb with and has a particular penchant for long scary choss routes! If you haven't done it, Margarine Ridge is a long super classic at a very relaxed grade.

[edit] Hey Chockstone developers - can you please fix Chockie's HTML escaping? It's annoying as crap to have to manually escape < and > every single time!

I'm always up for long easy choss... drop me a line if you want to play hooky during the week some time.
