The Shazzed! Arete

(6 routes)

The Shazzed! Arete was bolted in late 2013/early 2014 by Sharon Nicholas (Shaz!), Martin Broederlow and Danny Freestone. All bolts are glue in SS rod with hangers and the anchors are double ring bolts glue ins. The rock here is still crumbly in places so helmets are strongly recommended. The anchor at the top of "Too Much of a Good Thing" can be reached by an adventurous scramble from the ridgeline. Once you've been Shazzed! your never the same again.

Follow the crack up the slab and through the bush to a ledge mantle and then continue up the wide crack to either a natural anchor and walk off or rap from the "Too Much.." anchors.

3 My Ideal Situation 15 15m
A varied route, for those that want a bit of everything. Ride the groove, rocking over to the face and then up to mantle the ledge. Continue up to top out at a double ring bolt anchor. Shares last bolt and anchor with "Too Much...".
4 Too Much of a Good Thing 17 15m
Can you have it? Apparently so. Scramble up to below the overhang, then onto the face and move left through the overhang and up onto the face. Good jugs moving through the overhang but watch your rope doesn't the catch on the overhang. The 5th bolt is out of view from the ground. Shares last bolt and anchor with "My Ideal..."
5 Loose Desires 16 14m
Climb the groove to the right of the "Too Much" arĂȘte. The start is a little awkward, moving up to the top of the groove step out left to dodge some loose rock. Double ring bolt anchor.

6 Jess' Arete 14 11m
With thanks to Jess Pedersen for the support and donated hardware! Climb the face to the ledge then ascend the blunt arĂȘte. Stay out of the groove to the left which is dirty and has loose rock. Ends in double ring hanger anchor.
