Guess The Route

Is it in the Wolgan? I think there was a photo of it in Pete Taylor's Wolgan Guide. Can't remember the name though.

No, not the Wolgan.
Further south.

(Hint: I thought the route would be too easy to guess; think iconic like Kachoong; which is why I chose the night picture and asked for the pitch involved.
Connoisseurs of Chocky would have already seen this photo and read about it...
Anyone who has done the route, if they are like me, probably remembers every protection placement, let alone the features on it...)
;-)


... And since we are on a new thread page, here it is again to save going back a page to see it.

No, though you are in the right State.

... I am starting to learn how far Trip Reports don't go.
Heh, heh, heh.

Looks like the North wall of the Gorge at Buffalo. I'm thinking probably Ozy direct, no idea which pitch. Something above big grassy. Maybe the Fang pitch?

Blerrie close, but only a cigarette instead of a cigar...??

Hmm. Upon thinking about it further, there could be a twist to the answer, and we may end up having to get phillipivan (who I think is the climber in the photo), to have to adjudicate.

Hard to tell on a dark and rainy night (insert whatever sounds that turn you on for such events here), but I think the photo on the right is where he is at.

The 'depth perception' for distance/verticality is radically altered by headtorch beam at site vs telephoto lense from afar, ... hence the shadow distortion along with scale differences...

I was thinking something similar... specifically in that he most likely isn't on a pitch at all!

Ok, it is probably Scott in the photo, and I will let the readers work out the rest of your cryptic post.
;-)

Post edit.
After re-reading trip reports for the 2014 Aidfest they confirm that Scott is the climber in the photo.

Might as well answer the photo one then... This would be Scott on Ozymandias Direct, at the belay one pitch up from the Gledhill Bivvy. (Hence my comment about him not being on a pitch. Judging by his position he certainly isn't below the belay, and with only one climber in view, that can only mean he's waiting for this second to come up, or otherwise they were stringing pitches together and he was continuing through into the start of the penultimate pitch.)

I thought you were referring to pi not being on the pitch due 'spacewalking' a rope suspended in the void while cleaning the previous pitch.
;-)

>the penultimate pitch
?
It can be done from that headwall belay as one pitch but you would want a long rope...
The old guide says the two further pitches involved from there total 67m. The latest reckons 65m. ☺

Post edit 1 Sept:
On a 70 m rope it'd be a rope-stretcher by the time leader and second tie into each end of it...
;-)

2nd Post edit 2 Sept:
You are right.
I misconstrued the meaning of penultimate.

The most recent guidebook describes it as having 3 pitches after Gledhill Bivvy - 30m up to a HBB (where I think Scott is in that photo), 50m to the ledge (what I was describing as the penultimate pitch), and then 15m to the top.
