Crack climbing is the way, nice handjam rests (this is the section named the 1st crus above), the layback off Beowulf is beautiful and despite the slime I was able to get a good 6m through it due to a good R foot jam and by praying to the idol of mank climbing. If I thought it would make a difference I would go back with a couple of dozen tea towels and a wire brush.

Can anyone recomend some simmilar cracks up there? (preferably without the seepage issue). I am getting keener and keener to nail Angels now, I just need some endurance and someone to dupe into seconding me :)

The Snowgum is well rooted and very green, the branch overhanging Beowulf is easily half a meter in circumference, and there was no sign of seperation from the trunk. I had no issue using this as a sole anchor. If that had come off it would have pulled any hexes I set in the boulders below it.
