Can someone please give me directions to Pain and Frequency. I don't have the guidebook... I wanna try it on Tuesday. Maybe you would feel like being a tour guide Al?

Drive into the park, take the Great Circle drive past Gravel Pit Tor (on your right) to the Stockyard Carpark on your left (just before the road starts descending) Park your car and start walking along the old vehicle track which soon follows the fenceline.
Soon you will sight a boulder covered hill diagonally to your left. Cross the fence when the track starts heading right away from the hill. Traverse across the hillside to NW Outcrop which is ~ 1/2 up the hillside (~15-25 minute walk)

Pain and frequency is the obvious arete to the left of a leaning corner which is Grimulace.

Other worthwhile routes while you are there:
Continue traversing past P&F and a small face (grade 18) to the next outcrop. Diagonal dyke is good 22. Grimulace is also good if you like jambing.

Thanks heaps for the detailed directions Martin. How's the finger? Up for a boulder sometime out at Cobaw?

Bouldered at the Cathedrals today, for the first time since April when I did my finger... Resprained my ankle again badly, but the finger held up!!

So we can try and organise another Cobaw session for sure Joe.

Good luck on Pain and Frequency tomorrow if you go.

Hey Joe,
leave yourself plenty of time to get back to the car before dark. Harold, remdan and myself (gaining somewhat of a reputation for epics) left the crag on dark, walked in a straight line for an hour (one head torch between three!) and ended up back where we started. hmmmm

Rad route. Couple of quite hard moves down low. Could be a bit harder now... pulled off a good size crystal 'hold' in the crux today. oops.

jeez and I was so close to climbing it too.

I sandbagged Jerry Kupfer onto that about 8 years ago telling him it was graded 23 or something. He's still mad at me about it.

So is that the 2nd ascent done at last, or had Doug Hocking already got that? Whoever did it, congrats & well done. It's only taken 20 years!
If more holds are coming off it may well be getting harder as myself and a pommie mate both snapped off crystals when we had a play on it in '92 (still had Claw's old bolts so we stick-clipped the first one.)
Is 28 still right?

Yes but was he smiling when he graded it? Laughing his ass off I suspect!

i don't think douglas has been back. last time i heard from him, he was resting a sore finger. 2nd ascent is still up for grabs me thinks.
