Was bumbling around below this last weekend and looking at this. Has anyone seriously looked at freeing this? Seems a bit surprising that it hasn't been done even if it is mostly a crack.

where at Clicke Wall is it? We were just there on Sunday but only had the Selected Gramps guide with us, & so were wondering what the other lines are. What are the 3 mixed/bolted lines left of Dinotopia?

PS: despite the negative comments in the Selected Guide, Giblets is a great route!! either the original finish (@20) or you can finish direct up the white-ish/grey streak past 2 FHs @ 23 (I think this is the top of Slave Driver Saliva?).

Also there already listed as a FFA...

10 metre roof! Sounds good, any pictures?

Should just be FA (first ascent) in the guide. Adam and Robbie put it up on aid. Haven't got any photos but it looks good and could be worked on late in the day when other things are in the sun.

I put it under Clicke wall because I didn't have a "Kindergarten" option in the crag list and most people will approach via Clicke.

The mis-labled FFA tag is a database problem with the way they setup the ACA website (there is no 'aid'
option - everything is a FFA). I am getting them to change it ASAP.

A 10m trad roof crack isn't excatly the flavour of the month for most of the hard climbers in Victoria these
days. Thats probabaly the reason its never been done!

I remember looking up in wonder at that crack yonks ago (back in my bouldering days) and thinking it looked pretty unlikely. And I'm generally overly optimistic about these things.
Kinda of 'eat my underpants' bet territory.

That's complete rubbish. There's a crack and some features. You don't know unless you try it. Maybe it's impossible but you can't tell until you have a go.
The "Baxter defense" really doesn't cut it.

Indeed. But I did say 'unlikely' not 'impossible'. I certainly won't be commiting to the underpants bet if that's any indication.

I think Dave J might have done it at 26? Looked pretty hard for that when i looked at it a few months
ago.
