Near perfect climbing shot... a bit hazy, but the Moustache makes it feel like a
70s image

rope drag? why isnt 1 sufficient on the ohang as presumably there is more pro once lip is turned? looks 2 me like tentqtive commitment bc anyone who could do the roof should be able to get by with just the 2nd bolt instead of hanging around burning armpump doing excess clip? - unless it is simply for the shot like kachoong! think that odh dude made similar comment (just another cut loose kachoong shot) not long back?

I was hoping it was a tongue in cheek reference to the fact that there's nothing
visibly clipped before the two in the roof...
even if you clip off the ledge it looks ballsy at gr25

After seconding this FA, I can assure you it's not over bolted. This is the
second roof you go through on this pitch and it's a little run out to that
ledge. That bolt clipped at Jason's waist is the last one before you head
over the top (crux) to belay.

It's a great climb in a very exposed and scenic location high above the river.
Great photo too Bec!

Nice pic.

Minus one star cos the little white dots on the river are annoying, minus another cos he;s got so much tension its almost pulling his pants off.

Very nice shot. But its been said the white dots distract a little

The white dots are the oyster lease markers for when it's high tide and they
are under water (like in this pic). The water is usually pretty muddy there.
There are also power lines in the background that have makers on them so
planes don't run into them, which are also visible in the pic.

Yup...I shat myself when I got on it. But its pretty dang cool.

I dont reckon there's too many crags more scenic than this around the place.

I thought Jason gave it 23???

A great photo Bec and an awe inspiring route Jase. Nice work on the FA.

I like the dramatic 'cut loose' like Kachoong effect, without actually being just another shot of Kachoong. Much better background too.

I reckon this shot might spark some interest in the Bluffs. There's also Aidan's 18 (forgot the name?) stretching the whole height of the cliff (3 pitches?), with a fun, exposed traverse. It's a bit of a walk in but only 15 minutes from Mooney Mooney by boat. Just be careful not to get stuck behind the Oyster leases at low tide.

Bolts?
Why wasn't it deep water solo'd Honner style?
Heh, heh, heh.

As a photo I like this shot (near that climb), better ...

@ just another cut loose kachoong shot, sums it up for me.

A lovely photo (especially for scenery), but Derek my M10 love says it is a bit posed. I disagree, because if it was posed, Mr Piper would be hanging by one arm instead of two.
Is it really necessary to cut loose on it, as others have suggested is happening?
