Monday Wall

(23 routes)

So named when both Bryce and Michael threw sickies after a wet weekend. Perfect
weather, a new wall with five new climbs on it, and the fact that Cliff was stuck at work
after driving around all weekend in search of dry rock, left an indelible memory.

The main central feature of the cliff is a right facing corner 3m right of No Work, No Rain, No Worries. Has 1 naked bolt and a fixed peg near the top. There is a great placement for a large RP half way between the bolt and the peg. The crux is just above the bolt. Exit left to a DBC belay. Wear your red caps for this one.

A deep right facing corner with a fixed peg near the top. To start scramble onto the ledge where you can place a 1.5 or 2 friend and a small wire. These had better be good as there is no more gear till the peg. Move left at the top to the belay of Blue Peter.

A short climb with a long history. At least four previous attempts ended in dismal failure: lack of commitment and gumboots being critical factors. DBC belay & 2 bolts, so walk off.
