It's a shame that this awesome line appears to see absolutely zero action, either as the short 25 version or the whole shebang.

Has the second pitch been sent? Does it go all the way to the top of the wall or stop at the (single bolt?) chain just below the bushy break, about 10m below the top?

Are the 2 bolts and triple bolt anchor for the 25 first pitch in ok condition? I notice that Jonesy said here that the 2nd pitch needs rebolting... Is the 'crap' rock he refers to only up on the headwall above the break? Surely the orange groove up to the bushes is good rock?!

(Steve asked this before but no info was forthcoming.)

1st pitch excellent and well worth climbing - quite exciting. Bolts old but ok.

2nd pitch finishes at ledge - try it and see what I mean about the crappy rock - the odd concerning hold with a big crack behind it and the broken hold on the left of the runnel by the 2nd last bolt.

By 'ledge' do you mean the top of the cliff - or the horizontal break about 10m below the top?

horizontal 10m from top. you could finish up any one of the 2/3 bolt wonders or just head up the 7th pillar corner.
