Mystery sport route at Wall of Fuels, Stapylton

Does anyone know anything about a strange rap in and climb out (I presume) sport route on the left side of this crag? It climbs a rib feature through the middle of the tallest and steepest section. The problem is the bottom 15m of this cliff is blank! There is a single bolt and a red sling 15m up (the belay?), 3 ringbolts on the route and a large rap chain about 2m over the edge.

That's one heck of a batman start. Or maybe they've planted a tree below it and are waiting for it to grow up to the first bolt.

Or maybe they're planning to come back and build a massive cairn.

Improbable as the start is and lonely as the red tag looks fluttering in the wind, it's a sweet looking feature.

Totally unrelated but potentially quickly answered..whats the deal with the closed proj. heading left from Maurice Road at Reinitts?! Is it not important for developers to climb a thing once it is equipt?

I have no idea what you are talking about. Is Reinitts a crag?

Ahh you mean Rentiz Pass in the Blue Mountains! Just ask however bolted the route if they intend climbing it.

Well of course it is Neil, but the batman start is preposterous (without a Centurion-on-steroids treatment) rap in, climb out, insta-classic.

Neil this is a route I started boilting last trip down and intend to finish off at some stage in the future. Had drill issues which killed the completion. Will be awesome when complete but quite hard!
